Sweden’s Daniel Ståhl wins Olympic gold in discus – Pettersson takes silver

– I’m a Swedish Viking !, shouted Daniel Ståhl, 28, after the Olympic gold in discus on Saturday.

Ståhl bravely won the gold in the Olympic Games after throwing the fourth best Olympic throw of all time – a full 68.90 meters.

“Rolling over a house”

Before the first cast, he had described the charge as calm and controlled.

– Feels like I can overturn a house, he said to the coach Vesteinn Hafsteinsson on the inner plane.

Pettersson second

But it was not the only Swedish brilliance on Saturday. In second place ended up Simon Pettersson, who threw 67.39 meters in the penultimate throw.

That two Swedes won Olympic medals in the same sport happened most recently in 1948 in London.
