Athletics WA Indoor World Championships 2022


Recommended Posts

  • 6 months later...

Greece will have a very small team. Karalis and Tentoglou will be our biggest medal hopes. It looks like the "old guard" of Stefanidi, Papachristou, Kyriakopoulou, and Filippidis will not be there. None of them have competed yet in 2022. The Greek indoor championships are next weekend so maybe 1-2 of them will show up but it seems unlikely.


Stefanidi definitely isn't retiring yet. Kyriakopoulou gave an interview a few months ago saying she had big goals for 2022 which included the World Indoor Championships so it's a bit surprising. Filippidis last year seemed like he had nothing left in him and he's already 35. Perhaps the girls are injured and/or pregnant? Papachristou's coach said a few months ago that he hadn't heard anything from her since Tokyo.


Also the other three have all already won medals at the World Indoors, but it is the one medal (along with an Olympic medal which is too unrealistic) missing from Kyriakopoulou's CV.

Unless Polak can somehow make it, it looks like there will be no Greek women in field events for the first time in over 20 years.


Karydi isn't doing well enough to qualify for this, and Kyriakopoulou and Papachristou are both officially skipping the indoor season. We still haven't heard anything from Stefanidi (who has the qualifying standard for Belgrade), but it looks like she won't compete since she didn't sign up for the National Indoor Championships and is nowhere to be found.

2nd entry standard for :SVK


Viktoria Forster beat by 0.13 her pb in the W 60m to 7.28


After Volko she is our 2nd officially qualified athlete, still a 19 years old girl :yes





Viktoria Forster on fire !


A day after her standard in 60m she run the standard also today in the 60m Hurdles: winning the national title in a time of 8.16, exactly the qualifying standard.


The nice thinkg in a small country like we are is that Everybody is super happy when sb make a standard even all his/her opponents :lol:




So our team in Belgrade should be


Ján Volko M 60m

Viktoria Forster W 60m & W 60m Hurdles

Same with us, everyone is always happy and hugging each other :)




Looks like our team for Belgrade will be:

M: Tentoglou (long jump), Karalis (pole vault), Douvalidis (60 hurdles)

W: Spanoudaki (60), Vasiliou (400)


Small chances for Zikos (M 60), Pantazis (M triple jump), Pesiridou (W 60 hurdles) and Polak (W pole vault) to still make it. Stefanidi (W pole vault) already has the standard but she hasn't competed yet in 2022 and no one has any news on her.
