Karlsruhe can look forward to welcoming the world record holder. Beatrice Chepkoech from Kenya, the current world record holder in the 3,000 metres steeplechase, has confirmed that she will be at the starting line for the INDOOR MEETING this coming Friday, 29 January 2021. Although you won’t find any hurdles at the INDOOR MEETING, her start in the women’s 3,000 metres promises a record time, as her personal best indoors is 8:39.15 minutes. Last year, she was at the 1,500 metres starting line at the INDOOR MEETING and landed in fourth place.
Someone whose personal best indoors is slightly faster than Chepkoech’s is Melissa Courtney-Bryant. The British athlete celebrated her greatest international success at the 2019 European Indoor Championships in Glasgow. In 2021, the British athlete will be at the start again, this time under the name Courtney-Bryant, having married decathlete Ashley Bryant at the end of 2019.
The third introduction is for Fantu Worku, who is only 21. Fantu Worku also knows how to win at the INDOOR MEETING Karlsruhe. Last year, she won in Karlsruhe in 8:37.58 minutes, which is her personal best in the indoor event.
There will be a test of strength between the strong women at the women’s shot put event during the World Athletics Indoor Tour. No less than Germany’s shot put queen, Christina Schwanitz, will be making her mark at the INDOOR MEETING in the battle for the podium. At the INDOOR MEETING, she will encounter, among others, Chase Ealey, who is currently in fourth place in the shot put world rankings.
