The Press conference for the 3rd stop on the IAAF World Indoor Tour, the Copernicus Cup, to be held in Torun, Poland, was held at 4 pm local time on 5 February. A strong media turn out, TV, social media, IAAF, global media showed the interest in the presser. Marcin Lewandowski, Justyn Swiety, Ewa Swoboda, Marie-Jose Ta Lou, Sam Kendricks, Pawel Wojciechowski and Juan Miguel Echevarria highlighted the presser.
The meet will feature a huge battle in the women’s 60 meters, with WL Ewa Swoboda versus Marie Jose Ta Lou, and pole vault nirvana with Sam Kendricks, Piotr Lisek and Pawel Wojciechowski. Nearly local Marcin Lewandowski is going for the Polish indoor NR for the 1,500m.
This was a well done presser, with responses in Polish, English, Spanish, enough for local and global media. We have posted part 1 of the presser below.
