86 athletes in the Polish squad (most ever for EC). It's way too big for me to post it here ;)

 

The expectations are to WIN the medal table so beware! :champion:  :whistle:

Does the polish federation really expect first place in medal table? I think GB will have the same goal.

I think 5 golds would be the best possible result for Poland and in my opinion GB has a good chance to win more golds (mens 100 m, mens 400 m, mens 4 x 400 m, mens 4 x 100 m, womens 100 m, womens 200 m, womens 1500 m, womens long jump, womens 4 x 100 m). Germany also has a small chance to win 5 golds or more (mens shot put, mens discus throw, mens javelin throw, mens triple jump, mens 20 km race walking, mens 10000 m, womens long jump, womens triple jump, womens shot put, womens 100 m hurdles, womens 3000 m SC), but is far more likely to finish 3rd in the medal table.

Pichardo is entered for Portugal, but the IAAF site says that he's still not eligible :mumble:

I very much hope the IAAF's site is wrong..

 

Any chance he might not be eligible for IAAF competitions, but it's no problem for a European Athletics competition?

I guess we'll have to wait and see then. I definitely hope we'll see him in action, it would severely devaluate the event if he can't start.

Haha, i like your humor!

A cuban athlete not starting at EUROPEAN championships would devaluate the event ... :lol:

Having one cuban athlete (Ortega) steal medals from EUROPEAN athletes at EUROPEAN championships is enough for me.

Would be amazing if IAAF would never allow him to compete for Portugal, maybe then Portugal/Spain/Azerbaijan/Turkey/GB will realize that they have to develop their own athletes instead of just naturalizing as much foreign athletes as they can.

We will be represented by 22 athletes (11 M + 11 W)...

 

Men

Mateo Ružić (400 m, 4x400 m relay)
Sven Cepuš (800 m, 4x400 m relay)

Hrvoje Čukman (400 m hurdles, 4x400 m relay)

Daniel Daly (Marathon)

Bruno Erent (50 km walk)

Filip Mihaljević (Shot put)

Stipe Žunić (Shot put)

Filip Pravdica (Long jump)

Ivan Horvat (Pole vault)
Mateo Kovačić (4x400 m relay)

Mateo Parlov (4x400 m relay)

 

Women
Andrea Ivančević (100 m hurdles)

Ivana Lončarek (100 m hurdles)

Bojana Bjeljac (Marathon)

Matea Matošević-Hačić (Marathon)

Nikolina Stepan (Marathon)

Nikolina Šuštić-Stanković (Marathon)

Ivana Renić (50 km walk)

Sandra Perković (Discus throw)

Marija Tolj (Discus throw)

Anamari Kožul (Hammer throw)

Ana Šimić (High jump)
 

Perković is obviously our main hope, but there is also Žunić (World bronze medalist from London).  Mihaljević, Šimić and Horvat will hopefully reach the event finals. Cepuš, Ivančević and Lončarek should be aiming for semifinals. Hope to see at least one PB from our marathon runners.

Yep, we won the medal table in Amsterdam and there's a genuine belief we can repeat as the #1 nation.

 

Fajdek or Nowicki plus Wlodarczyk in the hammer,  both 4x400 relays and Adam Kszczot in the 800m are the biggest favorites for gold. Then we have several outside chances which should bring some medals (Lisek/Wojechowski PV, Haratyk Shot Put, Guba Shot Put, Ennaoui 1500m, Lewandowski 1500m).

Should be very close between Poland, Great Britain and Germany on the medal table.

The feeling here is that Britain could win 7 gold medals in the shorter races but not a lot in other events.
