Tim Nedow went to the IAAF Indoor Tour meet in Stockholm on Wednesday knowing that if he would win the meet he would win the whole IAAF Indoor Tour as he also won in Karlsruhe two weeks ago when he had 20.89m that was enough to win.
In Stockholm, Tim had the meet of his life. In the second round he put the shot 20.88m to take a comfortable lead in the competition. In the fourth round I threw a new PB 21.10m where he executed the throw easily in to an effortless throw. In the last one he went for it big time and threw a huge PB of 21.33m. This was a great win for Tim and definitely the highlight of his career so far.
In five meets so far the results are outstanding 20.98m, 21.00m, 20.89m, 20.56m and 21.33m. The average is 20.95m that is world class. Tim broke the meet record and is seated third on the 2016 indoor IAAF world list in the event.
Mesud Pezer broke the big 20m barrier twice in the meet in his first and third throw and his new indoor PB is now 20.01m and also his lifetime best as his PB last summer was 19.99m. But indoors last year he had 19.36m so this is a big improvement and it looks like it there is more to come. In the four meets so far Mesud has had 19.58m, 19.70m, 19.93m and 20.01m. The average is 19.80m that is outstanding. Mesud got fourth in the meet very close to the third place actually that is his best performance in this kind of a caliber meet.
Congratulations to Tim and Mesud!
