this Year's season is extra long, considering that this year's highlight, the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Doha, yesterday, in the late september-October. And it couldn't have been a better start for the Swedish diskushoppet Daniel Stahl.
the 26-year-old struck with a superserie directly in his first race for the year. In the Diamond League-the premiere in Doha, Qatar, he started with a jättekast at 69,63 metres and new världsårsbästa. And it was far from end there. The second roll measured 70,49 – and meant the new Diamond League record.
the End there? No, not at all.
In the third throw sailed diskusen in the way 70,56 metres – which became the evening's longest roll and a trimming of the recently set DL-record. Stahl continued with 69,54 and 69.50 and rounded off a fabulous series and amazing säsongsöppning with 70,32. As a little perspective, it can be mentioned that he at threw 69,72 in the last season.
– It is fun. I had good touch today, and it was good press in the stands as well, " said Stahl in the SVT after superserien.
" I have thrown quite far on the training also, but I thought maybe it would happen here.
– Polished the on the technology simply. And so am I stronger, like a bear, " says Stahl, who has 71,29 as the personal best from 2017.
Stahl was superior to that in the competition in Doha, runner-up Luke Weisshaidinger from Austria was the next to four meters away from the swede. And Ståhl think it is good that he has been to the world CUP-the stadium and thrown in.
" Now I've got to feel the ring, it is great. Great feeling here, " he says.
