Biography

Taavi Peetre first came to notice in 2002 when he set a national junior shot put record of 17.71 and went on to finish ninth at that year's World Junior Championships in Jamaica in shot put and eleventh in discus throw. In the next year he already won his first of seven Estonian shot put titles. From 2003 to 2010, Peetre only missed the Estonian shot put title in 2008, when he did not compete at the Estonian Championships. Peetre competed at the 2004 Olympics, where he did not advance to the final, finishing in 26th place, the same place he also achieved at the 2008 Olympics. The year of 2005 was probably the best for Peetre, as he won silvers at both the European Athletics U23 Championships and Summer Universiade. Peetre also competed at the 2005 and 2009 World Championships and 2006 and 2010 European Championships, but did not advance to the finals in those competitions. During his career, Peetre was coached by Ants Kiisa and in 2010 by Aleksander Tammert. On 11 September 2010, Peetre drowned in Lake Tamula during a fishing trip with friends. In his youth, Peetre was awarded an Estonian Rescue Board's diploma of saving his friend from drowning.

Personal Best: SP – 20.33 (2010); DT – 60.84 (2010).
