March 6, 2011Posted by on
The talented Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина won her first senior crown at the European Indoor Athletics Championships in Paris. The Russian junior record holder came from behind to nip Portugal’s Naide Gomes, the reigning European outdoor champion.
The popular Russian opened with a relatively modest 6.61m. By the third round, Gomes (6.79m) and the exuberant Yuliya Pidluzhnaya Юлия Пидлужная (6.74m) was at the top of the long jump perch. Klishina was a mere centimeter behind her compatriot, Pidluzhnaya, at 6.73m. In the fifth round, Klishina flew to 6.80m, bettering Gomes’ mark by the infinitesimal of margins.
With Gomes and Pidluzhnaya notching fouls in their respective final leaps, the standings became final as the formidable Russian duo notched a 1-3 finish.
