Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина beats Klüft at the SPAR Euro Team Champs Long Jump
June 20, 2011Posted by on
The reigning European indoor champion, Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина of Russia, prevailed over an in-form Carolina Klüft at the 2011 SPAR European Team Championships. Klüft threw the gauntlet early on, leaping to 6.73m in the first round – the best jump of the heptathlon great in years. The young Klishina ably responded with 6.74m in her second attempt.
The conditions weren’t apt for high quality jumping. Klishina managed only 6.40m and 6.57m, fouling her fourth and final attempt. Kluft, the hometown hero, got the red flag on two of her attempts.

With the rainy and windy conditions atrocious for the field events, Darya struggled in her next few attempts. Klüft held on to second place whilst Éloyse Lesueur (6.60m) and a struggling Naide Gomes (6.58m) held on for third and fourth, respectively.
Kluft’s and Klishina’s last jumps are featured on latter parts of the clip above.
