The Tasmanian javelin thrower Hamish Peacock threw a World Championship qualifier at the Domain Athletic Centre today. Of course since the season has just started it is automatically also a world leading performance of 2015. Beyond that, Hamish also increased his previous personal best of 82.24m (269′ 9″) to a fantastic 83.31m (273′ 4″).
In addition, this new personal best also means a new Tasmanian open record.
New jav PB 83.31m nice start to the new year!
Making the result more promising the throw was off a tender run up after tweaking a hamstring prior to Christmas.

Under the new IAAF qualifying system hard to imagine that Hamish won’t be in Beijing in August – injuries and illness aside
