  • Vetter spearheads German team for European Throwing Cup in Split

World leader Johannes Vetter headlines the German team for the European Throwing Cup in Split, Croatia on 8-9 May.

Vetter holds the championship record with 92.70m from Leiria in 2018 and based on recent form, the German could even challenge that mark after regaining his world lead with 91.50m in Offenburg on Saturday afternoon.

Vetter is joined in Split by his compatriot Julian Weber who won the 2017 edition of the event while reigning European javelin champion Christin Hussong and European discus bronze medallist Shanice Craft are among the other standout names on the team.
