In one of the most spectacular settings for an indoor championships, the 2015 European Indoor Championships were both entertaining and exciting. The 12,000 plus fans in the morning and the 15,000 plus fans in the evening were Czech sports fans, who were warmly rewarded with three medals: the silver in the men’s LJ with Radek Juska, who leaped a PB of 8.10m, Elikska Klucinova, who scored the bronze medal in the pentathlon with a NR Of 4,687, and Ladislav Prasil, who threw a SB of 20.66m to lead, and only dropped to bronze in the very last round, when Asmir Kolasinac threw 20.90m for the silver (David Storl had taken over first in round 3, with his 21.12m, then threw a 21.23m in last throw). 

The event of the night should have been the pentathlon, which was had Katerina Johnson-Thompson scoring pbs in hurdles, CR in HJ and LJ, and finished just twelve points off WR. The French sweep in men’s hurdles, the Swedes’ 1 and 3 in LJ and British women’s 2,3 in 60m hurdles were just some of the fun that we, as fans and media were able to watch.

Here is some of the behind the scenes info the Alfons Juck, EME News, provides for us on a daily basis. But, in his home country, Alfons provides great insight into this fantastic indoor championships.
