The men’s 60-meter hurdles event will be a fast one. Because with the Frenchman Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, his compatriot Dimitri Bascou and the Brit Andrew Pozzi, three world-class athletes have indicated that they will compete in the hurdle sprint at the 36th INDOOR MEETING Karlsruhe, which this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, will take place without spectators at the Karlsruhe Europa Hall.
One athlete who is very familiar with INDOOR MEETING Karlsruhe is Pascal Martinot-Lagarde. Martinot-Lagarde, who was born in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés in France and whose personal best in the hall was 7.45 seconds, competed in the event as early as 2012 and 2013 – at that time in the Europa Hall – and in 2017 in the exhibition pavilion. Andrew Pozzi has competed only once at the INDOOR MEETING Karlsruhe – but that one time was extremely successful. Because the 28-year-old Brit, whose indoor best performance of 7.43 seconds is still below that of Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, won the day at his first appearance in Karlsruhe. In the last men’s 60 meters in Karlsruhe he secured victory in a brilliant 7.44 seconds ahead of the Spaniard Orlando Ortega. The third member of the group is Dimitri Bascou, who won the hurdles sprint in 2015, the first event at the time in the exhibition pavilion. The 33-year-old Frenchman achieved an unbelievable 7.41 seconds, his personal best, in the hall. He first clocked that time at a meeting in Berlin in 2016, and it was the national record at the time.
