The Meetings Hauts-de-France Pas-De-Calais meeting was held on February 19, 2020. The meet was held at the Stade Couvert LiÃ©vin in LiÃ©vin, France. This is an iconic meeting site, as the first indoor meeting was held in LiÃ©vin thirty-two years ago. The French fans were treated to a fantastic meeting, with pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis clearing a mighty 6.07m, the first time in three meetings that Mondo did not set a World record. The women’s events, which is the focus of this podcast, kept the fans entertained as well.
The fans were entertained as Gambia’s Gina Bass won the 60m in 7.11! Jemme Reekie continued her fine season with a 2:00.34 win at 800m, and Ethiopia’s Gudaf Tsegay’s world leading 4:00.60 at 1,500m.
The LiÃ©vin meet had so many amazing performances that World Athletics gave them the #1 rating for the season.
Special thanks to Meeting LiÃ©vin, LF Photography and Mike Deering of the Shoe Addicts on the production of the podcast.
