IAAF made a review of the throwing events on their website and GT Management is excited to find our own athletes from that press release. Our discus throwers Daniel Stahl and Fedrick Dacres are named as a new generation athletes in that event. Read the news from IAAF website. Read more about Daniel Stahl and Fedrick Dacres from our website. Men’s discus This event has been almost synonymous with the name Robert Harting for quite some years but a serious knee injury kept him sidelined for the whole of 2015. In Harting’s absence, Piotr Malachowski – who for years had been Harting’s main challenger – took over as the number one discus thrower, winning his first ever global title at 32, following three previous silvers. That championships are something special is also clearly illustrated by a comparison of the world list coming into Beijing with the actual outcome in the Bird’s Nest stadium. World leader Malachowski lived up to expectations in Beijing but the second, fourth and fifth-ranked athletes on the world list didn’t even qualify for the final. There was also a group of global championship debutants, born between 1991 and 1994, who proved to be much better than […]

Daniel Stahl and his coach Vésteinn Hafsteinsson are in Fuerteventura in Spain on a training camp at the moment. There are 230 athletes and coaches on an Olympic Camp that is organized by the Swedish Olympic Committee. Good job Daniel. Congratulations on making your first olympics!

Daniel Ståhl did absolutely great in the final of the discus throw here at the WC in Beijing. He ended up in 5th place with a seasonal best throw of 64.73m and was only 45 cm away from the bronze medal. This is huge for Daniel and we are so proud of him. The competition ended up being really exciting and fun to watch. Daniel started out well with 61.57m in the first throw and we knew then already that it would not be enough for making it through to top eight for getting three more throws. After a little worse throw in the second round he had to throw close to 64m in the third throw and he did and hit a SB of 64.42m. He then followed up with another SB of 64.73m in the fourth to foul the last two. Daniel equaled the best throwing performance ever by a Swede in WC. The legendary javelin thrower Dag Wennlund was also 5th in the WC back in 1995 in Göteborg. Sweden has never got a medal in WC in any throwing event. The best discus thrower for Sweden in the WC before yesterday was Stefan Fernholm 12th place. […]

Four athletes from our Global Throwing Management group will participate in the WC in Bejing coming up in ten days. Tim Nedow CAN will compete in the shot put and has so far had a very steady season with many meets over the qualification standard of 20.45m. His SB is 20.78m and PB is 20.98m. Today we got good news as Daniel Ståhl SWE will also compete in the discus and he got in on a wild card last minute due to the rule that IAAF invites top 32 to participate as not all had reached the qualification standard of 65m. Daniel has thrown 63.38m this season but has a PB of 66.89m since last year. Sanna Kämäräinen FIN threw 61.07 already in the early season in March. During summer, she has been travelling around Europe and competing on a high-level. Mark Dry GBR improved his PB to massive 76.93m and holding on to 20th position at the world season list. We are really happy to see our athletes competing in Beijing and wish you all long throw. Enjoy the meet and have fun! Hans Üürike GT Management
