The javelin is one of the most iconic of athletic events. It dates back to the Ancient Greeks. The javelin is a true techinical event. One of the finest javelin throwers in the world is 2016 Olympic Champion Thomas Rohler. Thomas has taken 4th twice in World Championships, and in 2018, he took his first European Athletics Championships.
Thomas has a PB of 93.90m. He threw that monster in Doha, in 2017, at the Diamond League. I was there. I saw it. I was, well, magnifiscent. He has some amazing athletes that he battles in his own country. He is using The Match to build his focus for Doha. Thomas said that javelin throwing conditions could be challenging in the Dinamo Stadum, on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
We thank Thomas for his time and interview.
