Wow, :LTU Gudžius scoring second highest result this year with 68.61 at LLAF Cup in Kaunas. Third best result in Lithuanian history after olympic champions V.Alekna and R. Ubartas

1.89 is a mediocre result for a senior high jumper... but not for Yuliya. She fell from the training equipment & injured her leg in April. 5 stitches :cry:

Despite that she had her 1st competition in the middle of May and another one 1 week ago. She finished with 1.83 at both. Crying/screaming from pain, being exhausted - I've been at both, I've seen that. Now she jumped 1.89 in Poland from the 1st attempt and tried to clear 1.92 (her outdoor PB) and I'm friggen speechless. She's my hero :bowdown:

Ján Volko destroyed today the 100m National record running (for Slovakia) a incredible 10.16 :hyper: but still 0.04 behind the WCH qualification standard :( this is too harsh standard IMO

It is not harsh, it is outright INSANE. It is higher than our National Record and the person that is behind our NR has ran in semi-finals in Olympics, has been to the World Championships and nearly even medalled in the European Championships, but got an injury right before the final, was only behind Vicaut and Lemaitre after semis.

Ankle injury for Filippo Tortu. He tripped on a step yesterday night. His coach and father says that he will skip the u20 European Championships in July and is not sure about the World Championships.

From what I've read, in 2014 he run the 200m at the Youth Olympics, fell after the finish and broke both his arms. The last time he officially run the 200m before yesterday (2015) he then had to stop for 6 months for a muscular injury. He has been very unlucky with this distance.

 

However, he will be evaluated again next week.
