Weltklasse ZH Pressers, 3: Javelin stars Thomas Rohler (gold, Rio 2016) and Johannes Vetter ( gold, London 2017)!


What a treat in Zurich! The pressers were emceed by Colin Jackson, at the top of his game and well prepared. His questions to both Thomas Rohler and Johannes Vetter came from appreciation and admiration of the two fine German throwers.

Exhibiting competitiveness but also respect for each other and their Czech and Kenyan competitors, Thomas Rohler and Johannes Vetter, who have throw 93.90m and 94.44m respectively this year, are among the finest athletes ever in their event. But, more importantly, they are fine role models for athletes in Germany and around the world.

Again, watch this video if you are a javelin thrower or javelin coach, as there is lots to learn in this discussion!
