Gerd London 2017Gerd Kanter started the season with a win at a legendary Wiesbaden meet with 65.87. Unfortunately he got a serious injury from that meet and kept him away from throwing over 2 months. Gerd slowly returned to the ring having few meets on 61-62m before World Championships.

World Championships were held in London and Gerd did something spectacular in the qualification - he threw 63.61m and that quaranteed him 15th consecutive final spot at major championships since 2005!!!

Gerd was 12th at the final but got pretty good throws after London - 64.56m at Skolimowska Memorial and 63.69m at Pärnu throwing meet.All together Gerd had 11 meets this season and he continued his over 60m meets results in a meet series. As today, Gerd has thrown over 60m in 319 meets in a row (it started 20th August 2002). Gerd is ranked as no 12 at World Season list 2017.
