KLISHINA IN GOOD CONDITION
MOSCOW (RUS): Long jump two-time European indoor champion Darya Klishina was satisfied with her world leading 688 result in Tokyo in view of the fact that she never had so early start of the summer season. “I always can find little defects in my jumps but those which I had in Tokyo are easy reparable ones. I was able also well cope with the wind,” said the 23-year-old Russian to All-Sport news agency and added that she will go to Shanghai Diamond League meeting directly from Japan. Her Moscow coach Olga Shemigon underlined that Darya’s result in Tokyo just confirms how correct the current training methods are. Klishina will face in China two world medalists from Moscow Ivana Spanovic of Serbia and fast Blessing Okagbare from Nigeria. Also in the field Russian team colleague and 2011 World medalist Olga Kucherenko with British record holder Shara Proctor.
