Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина Leaps 7.05m, Wins Ostrava Euro U23 Crown
July 17, 2011Posted by on
Our favorite long jumper, Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина, won the gold medal at the European U23 Championships in Ostrava! The talented Klishina added the Euro U23 crown to her World Youth, European Junior and European Indoor titles.
The Russian made only two valid jumps. She leaped to a new personal best of 7.05m in her very first attempt, sealing the outcome of the competition! Klishina took off a mere 1cm from the plasticine. Darya fouled in the second and fourth rounds, but managed a relatively modest 6.54m and a high quality 6.71m in the third and fourth rounds, respectively. Her European arch-rival, Ivana Spanovic Ивана Шпановић or Serbia, won silver on count-back (6.74m). Klishina and Spanovic also placed 1-2 at the 2009 European Junior Championships.
Klishina bettered her erstwhile personal best of 7.03m set last year – as a junior!
The Russian stamped her class in the qualifying rounds, leaping to a massive 6.81m – a then season’s best for the rising star.
