Nikoleta Kyriakopoulou is the first Greek athlete (male or female) to win a Diamond League event. When I watched that 4.80 m she passed over, I was amazed! She screamed like crazy! lol

The IAAF Diamond League starts one month from now in Doha, Qatar. If anybody have the list of Greek athletes participating in Doha other than Ekaterini Stefanidi, please let me know.

Looks like it will be down to Morris and Stefanidi for the 8 points.

Kostas Filippidis will be taking part in the Shanghai Diamond League event. I just hope he finishes in a respectful position, it will be hard to win this meeting with guys like Lavillenie, Lisek, Kendricks, etc.

Filippidis finished 5th place with a height of 5.50 m.
He gets 4 points.

Eugene, Oregon is the next destination for the IAAF Diamond League. Kostas Filippidis will be in the men's pole vault event. They will show the events on NBC.

Another disappointing finish for Filippidis, 6th place (3 points).

Next Diamond League meeting will be held in Rome. 

Paraskevi Papachristou will be competing in the women's triple jump with 10 other participants. Of course, Ekaterini Stefanidi will be too.

Very disappointing finish for Papachristou as she finished 10th (13.67) in the meeting. She couldn't advance beyond 3 attempted jumps.

Stefanidi wins the Rome event (16 points total) after 2 meetings. 
Now she is going to attempt to break the national outdoor record at 4.91.

She failed on all 3 attempts, I honestly wanted her to break the record, but she is not ready to jump over 5 m.

She should first go for 4.95m creating a new Greek record and then set sights for the 5 meter mark.

Thank you, that is what I was thinking! 
BTW, 4.90m would be the new Greek outdoor record. 
Her best was 4.86m.

Ioannis Kyriazis will be a heavy favorite to win gold at the Under 23 European Championship in Bydgoszcz, Poland. I'm not saying that because I am being cocky, it's because no one in that group has thrown better than 85 meters both season and personal bests.

Stefanidi won the London Diamond League with a mark of 4.81. No surprise there.
