Yulimar Rojas ended the 2020 World Indoor Tour with a huge TJ of 15.43m, a fabulous new WR! Add to that the fast 6.44 by Ronnie Baker, who is showing exciting fitness and health after some injury troubles.


The Madrid meeting is intimate, and exciting. Sitting on the finish line stretch in 2019, I enjoyed the jumps and pole vault by Ahzelhika Siderova. The 60m hurdles and sprints got the 2,200 fans excited.

2020 was no exception.

This is the seventh and final meeting of the 2020 World Indoor Tour. Some amazing performancers in the final indoor meeting!

This is the second piece on Lieven by Stuart Weir. We loved the meeting hosting the men's and women's pole vaults was well recieved. These were big events.

WA_Indoor_Tour_Social_Icons_Round_Dark-06.pngThe sixth of the seven World Indoor Tour events was exciting. A sold out arena, with focused, exciting fields, and Lieven showed its promise. The 60m sprints and hurdles were hot for men and women. The pole vaults kept the fans entertained. And Lieven, now back as a major indoor event, showed its promise!

I love fartlek. The speed play, will build you and you can get as fit as you desire. Embrace fartlek, it is one of the special sauces that give you success.

Duplantis fatigued
LIEVIN (FRA): On attempting 619 in Lievin, Armand Duplantis admitted he was suffering from some fatigue having just broken the world record in Glasgow, informs L'Equipe. "I felt my legs abandoned me a bit and I didn't have the same speed on the approach. On my attempts at 6.19m, I think the second attempt was the closest but again, I lacked the speed. I felt quite tired, Glasgow was only a few days ago," he said. "I think by Sunday I will have discovered my energy. The All Star Perche is a good name for the event. It is the All Star Game in our event. It's a cool place to jump. I don't promise anything but I will advise you to watch!"
