On 18.05 the JenJavelin team completed another competition of the season at the 13th Schönebeck Solecup. In fairly cool temperatures, however, the athletes were able to confirm the performance of the previous competitions again. An outstanding performance was achieved by Katharina Müller (WJU18) with her throw over 49.78m. This width is at the same time standard fulfillment for the U18 EM in Györ (49.50) and the daily distance of the U18. In the WJU20 Marie Bertl was again able to confirm the DM standard (44m) with 45.46m. Sarah Linke, also WJU20, was able to improve again with 41.44m. The boys of coach Harro Schwuchow showed again their strength. Tom Pabst (MJU18) threw the 700g spear at 66.25m. Maurice Voigt (MJU20) was able to throw the men’s spear on 66.27m and secured the 2nd place. So both have repeatedly confirmed the DM standard and the standard for the U18 EM and U20 WM (norm: 69m) is not much missing. Our Olympic champion Thomas Röhler was able to throw from shortened start 85.88m. He had to let only world champion Johannes Vetter with 86.96m the precedence.
The next competition is for the team on 25.05 / 26.05 at the Hallescher Werfertage and for Thomas on 26.05 in Eugene / USA at the Diamond League again. Until then, further training will be continued.
To all athletes and coaches congratulations! We like to come back to Schönebeck.
