RBR Podcast: 2020 World Indoor Tour - Liévin (Women's Events)

| 0 Comments

The Meetings Hauts-de-France Pas-De-Calais meeting was held on February 19, 2020. The meet was held at the Stade Couvert Liévin in Liévin, France. This is an iconic meeting site, as the first indoor meeting was held in Liévin thirty-two years ago. The French fans were treated to a fantastic meeting, with pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis clearing a mighty 6.07m, the first time in three meetings that Mondo did not set a World record. The women's events, which is the focus of this podcast, kept the fans entertained as well.
