GLASGOW (GBR): Katerina Stefanidi’s final preparations for the missing title in her collection will take place in Glasgow as the world’s best female pole vaulter competes in the city for the first time. Since winning world indoor bronze in Portland in 2016, Stefanidi has been unstoppable winning Olympic gold, world gold and the European indoor and outdoor titles. The IAAF World Indoor Championships crown is the last accolade needed for her trophy cabinet and she’ll warm up for the global gathering in Glasgow, her season’s best 4.83m. Inform britishathletics.
RunBlogRun opines: Ekaterina Stefanidi is the finest women pole vaulter in the world. A relentless competitor, Ekaterina loves the act of competing, and she is focused. What has not been part of her repetoire has been going for records. Her Greek NR of 4.91m is good, but watch Stefanidi go for some big heights in 2018.
