• Stahl defeats Dacres to triumph in Sollentuna

Two nights after finishing second to Jamaica’s Fedrick Dacres in the Rabat Diamond League, Sweden’s Daniel Stahl reversed the outcome on home soil at the Sollentuna Grand Prix, a European Athletics Classic Permit Meeting, on Tuesday (18).

Stahl opened with 68.52m before improving to 69.12m in the third round. Both of his valid efforts would have been sufficient to defeat the thrower who surpassed Stahl’s Diamond League record in the Moroccan capital on Sunday evening with 70.78m.

Dacres had three throws in the 66 metre-range - his best effort coming in the final round with 66.79m. Germany’s Olympic champion Christoph Harting was third with 64.13m.
