Copernicus Cup. World results in Toruń – Athletics


Marcin Lewandowski broke the Polish record at 1500 meters (3: 35.71) and confirmed that he is in his life form. The Copernicus Cup also brought some of the best results in the world this year.

– I’m getting older, but I also want more and more. I cannot say that I was sure of breaking this record, but I knew that I could afford it – says Lewandowski. The Pole reached the finish line second, because the Ethiopian Salemon Barega was the fastest on the Toruń track (3: 32.97). The result better than the national record was also achieved by Michał Rozmys, fourth at the finish line (3: 36.10).

The American Grant Holloway (7.43) did not have a chance for the world record, because there were three false starts in the 60-meter hurdle race. Artur Noga became the anti-hero of the finals, who made two of them. American Christina Clemons had the best result in the world this year (7.81) in the same competition. Karolina Kocjek (7.98) and Pia Skrzyszowska (8.00) improved her life records.

Thanks to her start in Toruń, the leader of the world lists was also the Greek Paraskiewi Papachriti (triple jump, 14.60 m), American Elliot Giles (800 m, 1:43.63), Belarusian Maksim Niedasiekau, Ukrainian Andrij Protsenko, Italian Gianmarco Tambieri (all high jump, 2.34 m) and Ethiopka Lemlu Hailu (3000 m, 8: 31.24).

The shot putter competition was won by Michał Haratyk (21.47 m), and the fourth was Konrad Bukowiecki (20.54 m), who still did not meet the minimum for the European Championships. Pole-holders Paweł Wojciechowski and Robert Sobera have a similar problem. This competition during the Copernicus Cup ended with the victory of American Sam Kendricks, who overtook Piotr Lisk (both 5.80 m).

Dutch Femke Bol (50.66) defeated Justyna Święty-Ersetic (51.80) in 400 meters and confirmed that she is the rising star of the sports queen. “It’s crazy that I was able to win,” admits the fastest European this winter in an interview with Rzeczpospolita. – Now I am waiting for the rematch, which will take place in two weeks during the European Championships in Toruń.
