A Samoan discus thrower made an impressive appearance at the track and field competition held in the USA Alex Rose.

Having “caught” the wind, the athlete flew the tool as much as 71.48 meters in his best attempt. This is a new record for Australia and Oceania.

A. Rose achieved the second best result in the world this year and is now only behind the world record holder Mykolos Aleknos (74,35). At the same time, A.Rose achieved the 11th result in the entire history of the discus throw – he was only 2 cm short of the legendary German in 10th place by Lars Riedel (71.50).

Rose noted that until recently, he was worried his season might be over due to knee problems.

“This year is crazy. I was already thinking that my body was “falling apart” and that this season would be over for me. I tore my meniscus and had other problems. At one point I couldn’t even walk without pain, let alone do any kind of lunges or lifts. That’s why I didn’t start in Tucson because I thought I needed surgery.

Fortunately, the inflammation in the knee was stopped without surgery. I started training again, made some adjustments so that my knee problems wouldn’t stop me from shooting, and signed up for this competition at the last minute. The weather conditions were excellent and the disc flew 71.48 m”, wrote A.Rose, reacting very emotionally to the achieved result.

32-year-old A. Rose drew attention to himself last year when he threw the discus 70.39 m. It is true that he has not yet taken higher than 8th place in either the world championships or the Olympic Games.
