Banska Bystrica High Jump Meeting 2021
Athletes will compete on Mondo
World silver medallist Yaroslava Mahuchikh and Udinjump2021 winner will compete again on a Mondo track, facing fellow Ukrainian Yuliya Levchenko at the Banskobystrická latka meeting – part of the World Athletics Indoor Tour – tomorrow, Tuesday 2 February.
The pair will line up in Banska Bystrica against 2014 world indoor champion Kamila Licwinko of Poland and Italian duo Elena Vallortigara and Alessia Trost, all of whom have PBs of 2.00m or higher.
The Banskobystrická latka is a World Athletics Indoor Tour Silver level meeting; the meeting organizers chose to stage the match a Mondo portable track.
Some of the Gold level meetings were unable to accommodate a men's high jump competition – one of the scoring disciplines for this year – due to Covid restrictions, so to allow for an extra scoring opportunity, the men’s high jump contest in Banska Bystrica will count towards the scoring in the Gold series.
Italy’s 2016 world indoor champion Gianmarco Tamberi will take on 2020 world leader and European silver medallist Maksim Nedasekau of Belarus.
Tamberi signed the best world performance of the year in the high jump, flying over 2.32 meters just few days ago in Ancona, in the Palaindoor where he usually trains and which is equipped with a variable hydraulic banking track and Sportflex Super X supplied by Mondo.
