Maria Lasitskene, Yuliia Levchenko and Kamila Licwinko are all set to compete at the Copernicus Cup, meaning all three high jump medallists from the IAAF World Championships London 2017 will be reunited at the IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Torun on 15 February.

Lasitskene and Levchenko have already opened their indoor seasons and currently occupy the top two spots on the 2018 world indoor list. Lasitskene cleared 2.00m in Minsk on 23 December, extending her winning streak to 28 competitions. Levchenko, meanwhile, set a Ukrainian under-23 record of 1.97m in Kiev on 10 January.

Licwinko has not yet opened her indoor campaign, but she be encouraged by the fact that the Arena Torun houses the same track that was used for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Sopot 2014, where Licwinko tied with Lasitskene for the gold medal.
