Look, the Zurich train stadium is one of the busiest parts of the city of Zurich. Nearly 4,000 Swiss fans, most, I believe, who had never seen a pole vault before, were mesmerized with the fine women’s competition. The crazy cow mascot, Cooly, had them cracking up, but the likes of Ekaterina Stefanidi, Sandi Morris and Kate Nageotte had the crowd cheering and clapping for the entire competition!
A bit warm, but the competition had some serious jumps, including three strong attempts at 4.91m by Sandi Morris and Ekaterina Stefanidi! The womens’ pole vault is a perfect event to showcase in Zurich! As was said in the presser, a real Street Games feel, and it was!
It is not about reinventing the sport. We need to show those who do not know athletics how cool the sport is! Fine tuning is key! That is our challenge in the future!
