RunBlogRun opines: Thomas Rohler threw 93.90 meters, becomng the second longest thrower ever, at last week’s Doha DL meeting. Thomas began throwing the javelin at the age of 17. Until then, from the age of ten, Thomas competed in various track & field events as is part of German sports programs. He had qualified for the London 2012 Olympics, but, as he was under 20, the German Federation did not allow him to compete in London. Rohler won the Rio Olympics, and how has this Monster throw. Looking forward to seeing how Thomas does later in the season.
