Strong Johannes Vetter after only one throw in the Speer finale


Defending champion Johannes Vetter has confidently entered the javelin throw at the World Athletics Championships in Doha. The 26-year-old already scored his first throw in the javelin Qualifying strong 89.35 m and thus remained clearly above the required for the medal decision 84.00 m.

    
"It went according to desire, now I can go directly to the hotel." That was a really nice throw, nice and quiet, 89 meters should already be enough tomorrow for the top three, "said Vetter. The treacherous thermals in the air-conditioned stadium with down-cooled air at ground level and hot temperatures at higher altitudes was not an issue for Vetter: "I just started and ran away." Julian Weber also reached the final on Sunday with only one throw and 84.29 m (18:55 clock CEST). Olympic champion Thomas Röhler and the German champion Andreas Hofmann are only in the second qualifying group from 17:00 clock CEST turn.
