2019 IAAF World Indoor Tour Podcast: The Two finest competitions from Copernicus Cup, Torun, Poland, part 2


The Copernicus Cup has a great facility, a great sell out crowd, fantastic events, and two exciting final events! Torun is a city of 220,000 and has nice hotels, great food, and it is easy on the pocket book!

Do not miss European Indoor and World Indoor (Fly into Bydgodcz, or Warsaw, and try LOT airlines or Lufthansa).

This is part 2 of the RBR Podcast on the Copernicus cup. Special thanks to Mike Deering of The Shoe Addicts on his production, editing and speed with the RBR Podcasts.

The second to last event in Torun was the Men's 1,500 meters. Marcin Lewandowski was second in the 1,500m with a NR of 3:36.50, just as he promised. Marcin is an 800m/1,500m specialist and he is one of the most dangerous kickers in the sport.


Ewa Swoboda is coming into her own. Her wins this season, Karlsruhe (7.08, 7.10), Lodz (7.13, 7.13) and then, Torun (7.25, 7.15). Her start is solid and she looks ready to bust it open outdoors. Ewa Swoboda is just getting used to the media attention that comes with running so well. I look forward to interviewing her in the future. Her win over Marie Jose Ta Lou and over Dafne Schippers are true highlights of her career.

Enjoy the podcast!
