2019 IAAF World Indoor Tour: PSD Meeting Dusseldorf Presser (Feb 19): Katerina Stefanidi, Christina Schwanitz, Orlando Ortega!


The PSD Meeting Presse was held in held in the spacious Vandervalk hotel. The presser lasted 22 minutes and it was quite good. Ekaterina Stefanidi, Christina Schwanitz and Orlando Ortega were interviewed.

Ekaterine Stefanidi is always a fun interview, and she noted, quite realistically that Anzehlika Siderova has to be out of the top 2, OR, Katerina has to score a PB to win the IAAF Tour title.

Christina Schwanitz has a bit of a cough, and she did not want to speak in English. My only beef here is that with media like myself from around the world, there should be translation in German und English! If one wants to promote the series, then, one must speak in the global media/marketing language!

Orlando Ortega spoke in English, and his English is getting better. He knows that he can not win, but he sure wants a sub 7.50!

Stay tuned!
