DOHA (QAT): World javelin champion Johannes Vetter is confident he can surpass his PB of 94.44m in the javelin, informs European Athletics. "When I threw the 94.44m, I had no wind and I know when Jan Zelezny was throwing his world record, he had really good back wind. I am sure if I had the same wind situation in Luzern as Zelezny had in Jena, then I can also throw 97 metres or more. I am looking to beat my personal best. The training is going really well and I am in a really good mood. We will see what happens, with the perfect mood in the perfect competition. Maybe there is a good situation of the wind, the run-up has to be good and there are so many things which have to come together, to throw really far," he said. Vetter, who has already gone out to 92.70m this season, will open his summer campaign in the Doha Diamond League on Friday. Vetter will face Olympic champion Thomas Rohler and fellow world medallists Petr Frydrych and Jakub Vadlejch.
