Big congratulations to the athletes

This summer has been a great season for my athletes and I am very proud of what they have achieved so far. The summer season is coming to an end and I want to share all the great results from my athletes with you - remember to give them a big hi five if you see them around.

Søren Børsting
(Discus, male, age group: junior)
Søren Børsting just broke the danish record for 18 year olds. The record was held by Joachim B. Olsen, who I used to coach in the shot put, but now Søren has broke this record by 4 centimeters and now stands at 53.52 meters. The season is not over yet! Video from the record by Carsten Bomme.

Trine Mulbjerg 
(Shot put, female, age group: senior)
Trine broke one record after the other this year. Her most recent pr is 15.48 came at an optimal time getting her into the final at the European Under 23 Championship and a 11th place finish (video by Carsten Bomme).

Christoffer Mikkelsen 
(Shot put, male, age group: youth)
This young man has sky rocketed in one year from 14 meters to 18 meters! His competition highlights were: 15th place at The World Youth Championship (his first ever big championship) and 12th place at the European Youth Olympics. His current pr (set on the World Youth Championships) stands at 18.13.

Congratulations to all three ladies who qualified a danish team spot at the 2012 Olympics in London! When you are strong, everything is easier.
