European Championships (Outdoor)

Recommended Posts

I guess I was proven wrong about Belibasaki. Well done. National record set as well. Missed the gold by 0.05 seconds.

Horrible display from Baniotis, only manage to jump over 2.19 and finish 10th in the competition.

Sunday is the final day of the European Athletics Championship and my goodness I am going to miss it. Such a great event for Greece overall. Can't remember the last time Greece has done so well in any major athletics event. 

Alright, morning session is the men's and women's marathon 
Not expecting a medal 

Men's Pole Vault - Kostas Filippidis can medal, by judging the 11 finalist, guys like Lavillenie, Lisek, Wojchiechowski are all favorites to medal. Duplantis and Morgunov are ones to watch for, they can surprise. This event will be our last hope for a medal. 

Men's Triple Jump - I am quite surprised Dimitrios Tsiamis make it through the finals at the tender age of 36. He will try to medal, but I don't see it happening. 

4 x 100 men's and women's team - Not expecting them to qualify for the finals. Greece hardly do well in relays.

Dimitrios Tsiamis claims the bronze medal! Unbelievable! 
He is the oldest (36) Greek athlete to medal in the European Championships! 
I am so glad I was wrong when I doubted him.

Greece finishes the 2018 European Athletics Championships in Berlin with 6 medals (3 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze). It's the most medals from Greece in this competition since 2002 when they won 6 medals as well in Munich (4 gold, 2 bronze).

Tomorrow, Karalis has a shot for another gold medal for Greece 
Otherwise, this will likely be our last medal in Gavle, Sweden.

Karalis got the silver medal for Greece in the men's pole vault, finished with a mark of 5.60. So proud of his efforts! ☺

As the Under 23 European Athletics Championships conclude, four days from now the Under 20 European Athletics Championships is coming up in another Swedish city. 

Fun fact, Boras is where Helena Paparizou was born.

This competition has a strong field of Greek athletes. There is a potential Greece could win as many as 5 medals. Most of the athletes take part in field events. Only 3 will be on the tracks (women's 5000 meter and 10,000 meter race walk). 

Christos Frantzeskakis is the world leader in the under 20 men's hammer throw at 81.62. Despite the fact he is favored to medal, he has had issues in the past in getting a mark in qualifications. I hope he will finally snap out of his funk. Only needs a 72.00 to automatically qualify. Spiridoula Karidi is second in Europe at 13.64 in the women's triple jump. She has a strong chance of a medal. Iason Macheras is an interesting athlete, competes for University of Texas - El Paso (same school Papadimitriou went to). He is ranked 8th in Europe, he could surprise us and sneak out with a bronze medal. He would need to beat his PB of 19.48 to have a shot. Elina Tzengko is the world leader in women's javelin throw at 61.48. Definitely a heavy favorite to win a gold medal, no woman in near her mark on the list. Look out for Alexios Argiropoulos in men's long jump (2nd in Europe at 7.82), Olga Fiaska in women's 10,000 race walk (5th in the world at 46:39.06), and Stavroula Kosmidou in women's hammer throw (10th in Europe at 61.56).
