Maslak aims for triple-triple
PROSTEJOV (CZE): One of the stars of weekend´s European Indoors Czech quartermiler Pavel Maslak confirmed that his aim for next indoor season is to achieve a triple-triple of indoor titles. He already has one triple at European level (Goteborg, Prague, Belgrade) and now hopes for third gold in Birmingham at World Indoors in March 2018 after Sopot and Portland. "I know it will not be easy, but on the other hand as IAAF World Indoor Tour and wild card holder I will have more space for my best plan without trying to clock standards etc.," said Maslak. The Czech runner who since February 3, 2013 lost only one indoor 400 m final (this year in Torun to Bralon Taplin) also said that now he turns his sights on the outdoor season. "The goal is to get a sub 45 again and finals in London," informed Maslak who after short vacations will head for traditional training camp in Potchefstroom, South Africa on March 20.
RunBlogRun: Pavel Maslak is the Rodney Dangerfield of the 400 meter indoors. Maslak is a fine racer who is most relaxed on the banked curves of the fine indoor tracks across Europe. His win at Portland World Indoors, and his win in Belgrade has kept his streak going to five indoor terrestrial championships (Europeans, three, World Indoors, two). He will aim for Birmingham as well as hope to make the final in London.
