Barshim speaks about WR
DOHA (QAT): Mutaz Essa Barshim has hinted the world high jump record of 2.45m could fall next summer, informs the Gulf Times. “2.40m in a championship season is good. What counts are the medals and the titles this year. You get the titles, and then you have the rest of the season and other seasons to go for the records. Next season, we have the world indoors in March, and so my next aim is that. But I don’t think there are any major championships in summer, and that’s when you can focus on records and individual goals,” he said upom his arrival to Doha after athletics summer.
RunBlogRun opines: 2018 will have a Commonwealth Games and European Athletics Championships, but, it will not be a global championships. Watch for some record attempts in 2018, and Mutaz Barshim kept his shape this season, and he wants to jump much higher in 2018. It will be fun to watch!
