Qualitatively and quantitatively, we have the strongest event since the launch ten years ago. Our constant efforts to plan the competitions optimal for the athletes and their performance, officials focussing on the athletes and our strong focus on the next generation of young throwers seems to be paying off more and more. Especially the athletes and coaches speak of the competition very confident.
