The second meeting on the 2019 IAAF World Tour was a huge success! Three World Leaders, and event after event that were keeping the attention of the sold out crowd of five thousand, five hundred in Messe Karlsruhe, enjoyed a fastr 1,500m won by Vincent Kibet, a three way tie in the women’s pole vault, and a come frrom behind win by Pavel Maslak in the 400 meters.
In the 60 meter hurdles, Nadine Visser won the hurdles in 7.97. Cindy Roleder took second in 7.98. Ana Peliteiro’s win in the Triple Jump was a bit of an upset.
The meet had a feel, and the crowd, who knew track and wanted to see their European athletes were rewarded. The attention to detail that the meet management put into the meet, the support of the volunteers is obvious. And I sure hope everyone watches the rerun of the streamingr video.
Thanks again to Mike Deering of the Shoe Addicts, who produces the podcasts for the series.
