Europe’s leading jump this year by Miltos Tentoglou

Olympic gold medalist Miltos Tentoglou recorded the best effort in Europe this year measuring 8.38 meters at the long jump event of the Greek Championships on Sunday.

Tentoglou had all four jumps of his above 8.10 m. but his last effort in the final of the championships at Volos gave him the third best jump in the world so far this season, with a favorable wind at just 0.4 m/sec.

IOC is endangering our health, Greek champion says, demanding a Tokyo 2020 'Plan B'

The International Olympic Committee is putting the health of elite athletes at risk by telling them to continue training for the Tokyo 2020 Games as the coronavirus rages, reigning Olympic pole vault champion Katerina Stefanidi told Reuters on Tuesday.

"There is no postponement, no cancellation. But it (the IOC) is putting us at risk," the Greek said in an exclusive interview.

Not gold this time, but Stefanidi continues unprecedented medal run

Katerina Stefanidi's three-year gold medal run in major athletics championships ended Sunday when she won the bronze medal in the women's pole vault at the world championships in Doha, Qatar.

The reigning Olympic champion, who also won the world championships in 2017 and the European title in 2016 and 2018, cleared 4.85 meters at her second attempt.
