The Polish Athletic Association (PZLA) has announced a team of 44 athletes to compete on home soil at the World Athletics Relays Silesia 21 on 1-2 May.
It was a photo that said so much about the changing face of a nation, one that triggered a wave of debate on social media and among the highest reaches of Italian politics: four athletes, standing proud in front of their country’s flag at the 2018 Mediterranean Games.
Edoardo Scotti’s 45.21-second run in the 400m at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Rome last year was more than just a PB.
USA’s mixed 4x400m world record of 3:09.34 and Yaroslava Mahuchikh’s world U20 indoor high jump records of 2.01m and 2.02m have been ratified.
Returning to their vintage best, the USA regained the men’s 4x400m world title with the fastest time for 11 years with a typically dominant performance.
Living to their favourite’s billing, the US squad dominated the women's 4x400m relay, blitzing the field with a 3:18.92 world-leading performance.
