  • That's going to be an interesting competition.
    Gerd #Kanter is currently the WR holder of the discus indoor World Record of 69,51m

    Does anybody think #Harting or #Malachowski will be able to beat that?

  • Well i think that Gerd's record is very though to beat . I think that because gerd when he threw it was at his best such robert and piotr are now . So considering that Gerd had 70m cosistency then outdoors something that neither robert or piotr have now i believe that they cant throw that far .

    But records are out there to be broken so good luck on them achieving that .
