JOHN KELLY broke new ground in Sweden today with a new shot put record.
The Finn Valley AC man finished second in the men’s shot put at the Ystadspelen meet in Sweden.
In the Swedish city of Ystad, Kelly threw the shot out to 18.01 metres, improving on the St Johnston man’s previous best of 17.79m.
Kelly’s mark is a new Ulster, Donegal and Finn Valley club record.
The event was won by Viktor Gardenkrans’ 18.42m effort.
The day sends Kelly into next week’s Irish Life & Health National Senior Championships in good stead.
