European Championships (Outdoor)

Recommended Posts

I had high hopes for Spanoudaki, maybe her previous heel injury may have affected her sprint.

Anastasakis finished 9th in hammer throw with 73.33 meters.

I believe the last time 3 Greek female athletes reached a final in a major field event was back in 2004 at the Athens Olympic Games where Kelesidou, Voggoli, and Tsikounas all qualified in the women's discus throw. 🙂

I believe you are right. I was at the stadium to witness that great feat. Kelesidou should have won gold on that day.

Tentoglou is the European champion in long jump. He jumped his season best 8.25 to accomplish this feat.

Great job patrioti from Grevena.

Tsakonas failed to qualify for the final.

Anagnostopoulou just qualified for the finals in the women's discus throw with a mark of 56.52.
Both Alexouli and Ifantidou have performed poorly in both women's long jump and javelin throw. 
Douvalidis qualifies for the semi-final with a not so impressive time of 13.68 (4th in the heat).

Belibasaki qualified to the final of 400 m with 51.23 seconds. So did Baniotis in high jump with 2.21 m.

Pesiridou (13.00 sec. in 100 m hurdles) did not qualify.

Polak finished last in pole vault after failing to clear the opening height (4.30 m). Stefanidi and Kyrikopoulous are still in the running for medals as there are 4 jumpers left in the competition.

Tomorrow, we have 2 big events  for our Greek athletes in the women's triple jump and women's 400 meter. 
Papachristou is one of the favorites to medal and if she continues to jump well above 14.40 or more, she has a great chance to claim gold. Belibasaki is competing in her first major track final in any event (no disqualifications this time :D). She looked great in the semifinals and has a very good chance to medal. She will need to run a clean race, hopefully breaking the 51 second barrier.

2 out of 3 Greeks qualified for the finals 

Skarveli missed out in the women's hammer throw, finishing with a mark of 67.97
Tsiamis is in the men's triple jump finals with a mark of 16.69
Filippidis is in the men's pole vault fnals with a mark of 5.61 

The Greek women 4 x 400 relay team did not make it, no surprise there.

Kind of doubt that Belibasaki will medal. We might be able to get one from Filippidis though on Sunday.

In today's 20 km race walk
Papamichail finished 15th place
Drisbioti finished 13th place 

In the men's high jump, Baniotis is jumping 3rd in the order. His seasons best is 2.31 (tied for 4th best in Europe). He will need to jump close to his season's best to have a chance to medal. 

In the women's 400 meter, Belibasaki will be looking to end Greece's medal drought of 12 years in track events. She has a potential since the event is wide open with no clear cut favorites. 

In the women's discus throw, we can all hope for Anagnostopoulou to have a good showing by finishing 8th or better. Only way she would medal is to throw past her personal best of 61.53, which is not likely going to happen.

Maria Belibasaki won silver medal and broke Fani Halkia's Greek national record in the women's 400 meter of 50.45. Bravo to our Cretan girl! ❤️❤️❤️
