    Croatian icon Sandra Perković throws her 1kg 70,51m (231' 4") at the Winter Croatian Championship meet in Split. It's the 1st throw over 70m since Russian *Natalya Sadova's 70,02 m (229' 8") toss in twenty-two years ago (1999). It was her 2nd PB of the day, coming three rounds after her 69,96m (229' 6") opening.

    Yeah that rumor is "true".


    There was a competition in Kienbaum at which Gabriele #Reinsch, Martina #Hellmann and Ilke Wyludda competed. It was some kind of trials of who is going to WC. She threw 78.14m, unfortunately this competition was not an official one. It was only a trial training comp of who is going to WC... Therefore, this doesn't count as an official WR

    On 6 September 1988 she threw the discus 78.14 meters, further than
    anybody had ever thrown it before. The throw came though in an
    unofficial training tournament in the East German training camp at Kienbaum,
    therefore the throw was not eligible to be considered a world record.
    Her personal best throw was 72.92 metres, achieved in August 1987 in Potsdam. This result ranks her tenth on the world all-time list[1] and sixth among German discus throwers, behind Gabriele Reinsch, Ilke Wyludda, Diana Gansky-Sachse, Irina Meszynski and Gisela Beyer.[2]
