Swedish javelin thrower Kim Amb broke her record at an athletics competition in Zweibrücken, Germany on Saturday. Amb won the men’s spear race with a score of 86.49, which he threw right away on his first attempt.
The result is Amb's new record and this year's second best result in the world. The top statistic is India’s Neeraj Chopra, which threw 87.86 as early as January.
Amb's previous record was set at 86.09 last September. The man described what was going on throughout his career as the best.
- This feels super good. I already felt in the warm-up that today could be a long throw, Amb, who turns 30 on the last day of July, said.
The Swedish record for men's javelin throwing is from 1990. At that time, Patrik Boden threw the cane to 89.10.
German star, 2017 world champion Johannes Vetter was left without a result. For Vetter, the competition was the first of the summer.
