Gold, Silver and Bronze for Golazo Personalities at European Athletics Indoor Championships

Three of Golazo personalities' athletes won medals at the European Athletics Indoor Championships in Torun in Poland. Elise Vanderelst won the 1,500m gold, Isaac Kimeli the 3,000m silver and Thomas Carmoy bronze in the high jump.

Elise Vanderelst took a sensible approach in a very tactically run finale. She waited for the right moment to propel herself forwards and raced to win the 1,500m gold in a searing final sprint. The 23-year-old athlete from Mons won with 4:18.44 beating Brit Holly Archer and the German Hanna Klein. The second Golazo personalities athlete in the finale – the German Gesa Krause ? finished in eighth place.

As was expected, Jakob Ingebrigtsen (7:48.20) was untouchable in the men’s 3,000m, but Isaac Kimeli impressed by grabbing second place behind the Norwegian phenomenon. 26-year-old Kimeli finished in 7:49.41. Robin Hendrix ended in twelfth place with 7:59.86.

Thomas Carmoy, the 2019 European U20 Champion, immediately scored a bronze medal at his first Senior European Championships. With 2.26m, the 21-year-old athlete from Charleroi stayed just 2cm below his PR. Gold went to the Belarussian Maksim Nedasekau who reached 2.37m and silver went to Italian Gianmarco Tamberi with 2.35m.
