OSTRAVA (CZE): Some 130 athletes from 34 countries of 4 continents are expected at the Czech Indoor Gala on Thursday in Ostrava (WIT Silver). Top home star Tomas Stanek feels for shot put in good shape and after Millrose Games results were cancelled the World lead 21.33 is his target. “Its a good motivation to improve my season best,” he said before the competition where he will face his Polish rival Michal Haratyk. Olympic winner Miltiadis Tentoglou will jump for first time since his Tokyo Gold: “My training went well, I need to continue in top results, and want to win again here.” Thobias Montler and JuVaughn Harrison should be his main rivals. British 800 m indoor record holder Eliott Giles after Karlsruhe win last Friday plans a good time for the 1500 m. “Based on the result we will decide which event will be the priority towards the World Indoors,” he said. Czech 1500 m record holder and Olympic finalist Kristiina Maki wants to forget Karlsruhe where she did not finish and plans to attack her indoor PB 4:08. 500 spectators are allowed and will be there.
