Gonglijiao finally passed 19m with 19.19m,so strange for me for her consistent result over the years,only one putter like Schwantiz maybe Omarova of RUS,however,SCHWANITZ has never entered a major championship top-8,she always shows good result in qualification round but bad in final,can she change a bit this year after her EIC crown?
Wow,Schwantiz 20.20m SP came in the 5th round which equals pb of Kleinert,Gonglijiao still not find her form,19.23m is her current best, by the way ,MCCALL Jeneva who is a mutiple thower finished 7th with 17.83m toss following her 18.04m in Japan GP.
Good early season performance for Gong, 19.73 is not bad at all given the fact there are three monts to go to Moscow world championships. Schwanitz is carrying on her great form, this year she seems to have finally reached a stable level, she is very strong and could be a medal contender in London, given Ostapchuck's doping ban.
In an interview earlier this year Schwanitz mentioned that she had the screws in her foot removed (a result from five operations) in november and that she can move much more freely now without pain and do things in training she couldn't do before.
