During the monday afternoon session I set a bomb of 57,92m (190ft) involving a new TrainingPB.
The conditions were fantastic and a strong wind from ahead was blowing. Nice throw but hopefully there is more to come during the next weeks and maybe we can celebrate even the first 60+ of my career .

|Qualification Comp in Schweinfurth|
The summer had arrived in Germany, 40 degrees hasn`t happened quite often. During the last couple of weeks things have amazingly changed and not only in sports. Two weeks ago we had the qualification competition for the upcoming youth champs which will take place in Cali (Columbia) from 15 - 19 of July. I was pretty excited, but the weather puts a spoke in my wheel (For the native speakers: Is that phrase right???), it rains and storms. But despite that I had a couple of good throws over the 50 meters mark but missing the upwards outlier over the qualification mark of 56,50m which I didn`t have until now. At the last week competition held in Cottbus I was able to improve my PB to 55,16m with 1,5 Kg implement taking me in second position of europe`s M16. In spite of every effort I couldn`t reach the standard for Cali but was nominated for the European Youth Olympic Festival in Tiblissi, Georgia. It is like the real Olympics, but only for european countries, 8 disciplins and athletes born in 1999 (I`m very happy that Athletics is one of them). So that could be my for comp for the national team of Germany and I`ll tell you when I get the decision from the national olympic comittee.
Currently school is pretty boring, we cannot get any grades which is the reason why the motivation to wake up at 6 am goes downwards. Having enough time for other projects is also not bad and good for the preparation for the EYOF. Next week will be a training camp at the baltic sea (when other students have theire last days in school :D ) as the last stress test. Hopefully we won`t get the temperatures like the last days, but a hot and dry summer is betther than a wet one for us throwers.

I know that there haven`t been any new posts for the last 3 months and I`m so sorry for that, but I had pretty much to do during this time.
After the failled competition at the Northern-German-Championships, I wasn`t qualified for the winter throwing Champs in Neubrandenburg and therefore we started preparing for summer season two weeks earlier than we had planned. Now, 3 months later, I can say that it was maybe better than
competing in Neubrandenburg, because of some technical issuses creeping in during the weightlifting period.
Since the "restart" the coordination of the total structure between force and the feeling of throw has been much better than before. At the last weekend competition in Cottbus, I won the shot put and discus event outperforming the qualification standart for the summer Champs by almost a meter.
But despite the sport activities, there was also scientific work to do. Many exams and midterm tests were written and the absolut highlight for me was the Chemestry Olympiad of Brandenburg in mid April. My school, the Max-Steenbeck Gymnasium in Cottbus, won 3 gold and 1 bronze medal outclassing every other school in the federal state of Brandenburg. Two of us, a student from class 9 and I, were also honored as the best experimenters. For me it was the first time winning a medal at a scientific olympiad of Brandenburg and I`m really proud that it was the gold one.
As you can see everything goes in the right direction and I`m optimistic for the summer.

|Shot put comp in Potsdam|
Firstly I wanna say thank you to all people over the world who wished me a happy birthday on Monday. It wasn`t a extraodenary party, just dinner with my parents, sister and the coach from the Track&Field Club at a steakhouse in Cottbus.
On Sunday I made my first Geocaching-Tour and it was quite succesfull: I found my first Geocach!
|During my first Geocachng-Tour|
For all the people who don`t know something about Geocaching, I can say that it`s a funny outdoor activity. You just have to download the app from Google Play or App Store, create an acount and start searching for your first Geocach! They are all around you, maybe close to your house. If you find one, you can enter your name in a list, so everyone can see it.
One of my birthday presents were some tickets for the first professional shot put meeting in Potsdam (capital of my federal state). I was pretty excited to see two of world best thrower over the last 5 years and both produced massive throws over the 20 meters line.
It was a special-meeting, because it was the first K.O. shot put competition worldwide.
As you can imagine, this was a exhausting but also motivating week and I hope that this peroid of succes will continue.

Another exiting week is over and I`m proud to tell you that I became State Champ 2015 yesterday. Last week silver medal crowned by the gold one from saturday. The competition was quite difficult for me, because I felt very leached out after a hard bench press session on friday evening. I was happy about my title, but not really about throwing performence. Only 15,82m were my best valid one, so more than half a meter shorter than my best throw in Cottbus two weeks ago.
Schooltime is totally boring at the moment, we can not get any grades and so the level of motivation sinks every day. For the following week I was chosen to be a member of chemistry-state-seminar until Thursday. We wil l get some presentations & lectures by the profs of the university of Cottbus to learn new strategies for solving chemical problems. On Friday we will get our report and I promise you that it will be the best I`ve ever got. Wish you great and experienced week!!!
best throw from saturday

|Training center at home|
After I got my weekly massage on Friday evening, I was ready to go for my PB on Saturday.
Saturday was the first day of the State Championships and the discus competition was one of the first finals this day.
