Tentoglou started the season yesterday with 8.33 in Athens. This is his best start ever and makes us wonder if he will smash the 8.55 he did indoors last year.

 

Also our 17 yo Iliana Triantafyllou (pole vault), who won gold last year at the European U18 Championships, cleared 4.30 today in Thessaloniki. Her previous PB was 4.15 outdoors and 3.35 indoors. Stefanidi's U20NR of 4.37 is in danger and will most likely be broken by Triantafyllou over the next two years.

She tried for 4.38 today but unfortunately was not successful. It was also revealed that she will be leaving to go study in the United States and compete there. It might not be the best decision because most of our athletes who did so in the past stopped improving. Even Stefanidi who had a world junior record stopped improving, and only AFTER she completed her studies did she start getting new PBs again...

 

However we had a big U18NR today in the men's shot put by Dimitrios Antonatos (20.62m with 5kg, Mouzenidis had the previous record with 19.96m), and also Nikoleta Michailidou equaled our U18NR in the women's high jump with 1.83m.

in :ITA Ancona, :HUN Leonardo Tano improved to 7.79 in the men's 60m Hurdles.

 

who is Leonardo Tano? most people are just asking themselves that question...

 

well, he's nothing less than the 23-year young son of Rocco Siffredi (and Rosa Caracciolo, for those who know what is it about) :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

 

in the last couple of weeks, here in Italy, he's getting more attention than Marcell Jacobs himself :rolleyes: :facepalm:
