Track Beauty of the Week: Marie-Laurence Jungfleisch
April 11, 2011Posted by on
Marie-Laurence Jungfleisch is this week’s track beauty!
The 20-year old Jungfleisch was the youngest member in the German contingent sent to the 2011 European Indoor Championships. With Ariane Friedrich absent due to an Achilles injury, it was up to the youngster to carry the cudgels for her country in the high jump. She finished 12th in qualifying, notching a 1.89m mark.
Jungfleisch has had a stellar 2011 season. Pitted against a crack lineup of veteran high jumpers, young German ably put on a firm challenge. She leaped a new absolute personal best of 1.92m, finishing behind the Russian duo of Svetlana Shkolin Светлана Владимировна Школина and Irina Gordoyeva Ирина Гордеева.
Jungfleisch was born in Paris to a father from Martinique. Hence, the 2011 European Indoor Championships was a homecoming of sorts for promising German talent.
The 20-year old had won the 2008 and 2009 German Youth titles, as well as the 2011 German indoor senior title. Expect Jungfleisch to do better in the coming years.
