Mona Holm set a new Norwegian and Nordic record for women in Hammer Throw at the Norwegian Championships at Byrkjelo on August 13, with a throw measuring 70.43m.

This also qualifies Hom for the World Championships in a few weeks as well as the London Olympics next year.

– I could hardly believe it. It is three metres further than my longest throw in a competition up to now, Mona Holm said. She herself had the previous Norwegian record, at 67.96.
