June 7-8, 2019 / Jena, Germany
The previous JenJavelin Javelin Festival’s winner was Andreas Hofmann who prevented RIO 2016 Olympic Champion Thomas Röhler for winning in his Hometown. This year the 4th Jenaer Speerwurf-Festival on Saturday in the Oberaue, the local hero won his third victory with 82.56m, in the women’s competition Tatsiana Khaladovich won by 62,93m.
With a lot of applause Thomas Röhler (LC Jena) was the last participant in his “own court” to be greeted by the spectators. The European champion led the world class field. A rather gusty headwind moved over the facility, with which the athletes had their difficulties. Also Thomas Röhler needed something to arrive in the competition. He finished the first three attempts with 77.11 meters. And then came the fourth attempt, in which he increased to 82.56 meters and took over the top position. He did not hand it over until the very end.
Although the Pole Cyprian Mrzyglod drove in the sixth attempt with 82.31 meters very close to the winnings. Third was Kim Amb (Sweden, 81.69 m).
Christin Hussong (LAZ Zweibrücken) was leading until the final round, the European champion had been in the lead with 62.40 meters. On the final stretch, Belarussian Tatsiana Khaladovich snatched her 62.93 meters away. The women also struggled with the difficult wind conditions. “That was already very, very difficult to throw today. One did not know how the wind is at the height where we throw. From there until I’m really satisfied with my 62.40 meters, “said the 25-year-old from Zweibrücken. “The third place went to the Indian Annu Rani (60.46 m).
