The final event of the 2020 World Athletics Indoor Tour was in Madrid on 21 February. The schedule was tight, and the events were exciting. Justyna Swiety Ersetic took the 400m in 51.93. Gudaf Tsegay won the 1,500m in a tight race, winning 4:04.66. The best event of the night was the 60m hurdles, as Christina Clemons won in 7.82. Nia Ali was second in 7.88. Tereresa Errandonea of Spain took third in 8.00.
The big event of the nght was triple jump. Yulimar Rojas set a new WR in 15.43m! Rojas had a short indoor season, having leaped 15.41m just a week before.
The small, but boisterous crowd at the International Meeting de Madrid enjoyed the meet, and we hope to be there in 2021.
