Olympic Champion Gerd Kanter competed yesterday in Budapest, where he got 5th position with a throw of 62.12m. At first, seems like an average result with mediocre position. But this result was another milestone for the Estonian - this 62.12m was 300th time for Gerd Kanter to throw over 60m - extraordinary achievement, that only 7 athletes have accomplished before in history.

It has taken Gerd all together 15 very active competition seasons, to get to this result. First time Gerd threw over 60m was in 15th August 2001, when the had a meet in Tallinn and result was 60.47m. The following years Gerd had an average of 20-27 competitions per season over the magical line (record was 27 competition in 2007 and that included 6 meets over 70m).
