There are still a little more than four weeks to go until the INIT INDOOR MEETING Karlsruhe on 27 January 2023 at Messe Karlsruhe, but it is already becoming apparent that athletics fans will once again be able to experience a number of top athletes up close. Because in the women’s 60 metres, for which Malaika Mihambo has also confirmed her start, the spectators can look forward to Dina Asher-Smith from Great Britain and Poland's Ewa Swoboda, among others.
Dina Asher-Smith, Ewa Swoboda and Malaika Mihambo are also joined by Alexandra Burghardt, who has already won international medals this year with her gold medal at the home European Championships in Munich as well as bronze in Eugene at the World Championships – both with the 4-by-100-metre relay – and has already caused a sensation this year. Burghardt can also call herself a six-time German champion. In the men´s pole vault, it comes to a duel between the Germans Bo Kanda Lita Baehre and Oleg Zernikel.
