Andreas Thorkildsen has taken to twitter to announced the following.
Andreas Thorkildsen is the 6th best javelin thrower with the current javelin model. with a personal best of 91.59 that he set back in 2006. Last season he only managed 80.79 in Praha. due to injury.
My opinion on Andreas Thorkildsen Missing this season out.
“I think that the decision that Andreas is making is a sensible decision, missing this season out will allow him to take time in preparing for a good comeback in 2016, Andreas will probably be taking care in throwing and not over doing any of his throws during training. So i wish him the best of luck for his come back in 2016, and hopefuly we will see some good battles between himself and Julius Yego”
