The first time that I was able to really observe Anzhelhika Siderova was in Madrid in 2019. It was part of the 2019 Winter Indoor tour. Anzhelika conversed with her coach, as she moved up in heights in Madrid.
I had found a seat among the coaches, managers, and trainers who were sitting by the starting line of the 200m track which was hosting the Meeting de Madrid.
Sidorova had a great battle at the Meeting de Lieven. Anzelhika Siderova is moving towards some big heights.
Sidorova 487 WL, Vloon 587
CLERMONT-FERRAND (FRA, Feb 19): Great battles highlighted the All-Star Perche meet (WIT Silver). World champion Anzhelika Sidorova needed to jump 4.87m World lead in a third attempt (and tried at five meters) to win over Polina Knoroz who twice jumped personal best with 4.75m in third and 4.81m in first (there she took the lead). In third place Slovenian Tina Sutej 4.75m in the second attempt, national indoor record. It was not a good day for Belarus record holder Iryna Zhuk and European indoor champion Angelica Moser who went out at 4.55m after clearing 4.45m for 4th in a four-way tie. Olympic winner Katie Nageotte did not jump due to small foot pain but watched the competition in the hall. Dutch Menno Vloon cleared 5.87m season-best in the third to win and offered three attempts at a national record six meters. Second Greek Olympic fourth placer Emmanouil Karalis with 5.81m (equaled his PB). He had good attempts at Greek record 5.87m, the second one was close. Three jumped 5.71m in a tie for third: French Ethan Cormont and Mathieu Collet with Australian Kurtis Marschall. The main organizer Renaud Lavillenie tied with brother Valentin for 8th as both went over 5.51m, both passed 5.61m and both did not clear 5.71m.
