    From where are you getting these results? Athletix.org doesn't seem to have them and the meeting site doesn't have anything for this year.

    Before learning new bad news about Tsoumeleka, who was found also guilty at the final of 20km walking in Beijing, in Greece took place the first games od the year, who actuallay have the sense of helping the associations....Therefore, not many great performances were remarked but some were very promising...

    The best of all was, without a doubt, that of Stella's Papadopoulou in the hammer throw who easily had a throw of 70m. to win her event... In the same event Alexandra Papagergiou, a twice Olympian and a finalist in OG in Athens had a best throw of 66,68m. while 19-year-old Andrianna Papadopoulou improves her own national record once more by 1,5m. having a throw of 63,56m....

    Javelin also included some good performances... 22-year-old Spyros Lebesis improves so early in season his last year PB with a throw of 78,16m. , boosting his confidence in view of the U23 European Championships this year... But also so did another 22-year- old, Gervasios Filippidis who after two years destroyed by injuries, missing him the chance to build on his 81m. he had in early 2007, looks strong enough to overpass the barrier again. In women's javelin, again the best in Greece for another year seems to be the evergreen 39-year-old, 5th in Osaka, Savva Lika who opened her season with a respectful 58,80m.

    For the star of Greece, Hrisopigi Devetzi, after she opened in Senegal last week witha leap of w4,08m, this time had a best jump of 14,10m. and a 6,22m. in LJ but this is a year in which Devetzi started her preparations in Jamuary, changed coach and now trying to build on it...We hope that in Berlin she will be ready enough to continue her medal winning... Louis Tsatoumas opened in 7,74m. while Periklis Iakovakis had a problem with injury and didnot want to make it worse in view of a busy summer so he didn't run his favourite 400m. H...

    Some other good performances, taking into account the early of the season were those of
    Kostantinos Baniotis, 6th in Torino earlier this year 2,20m. (HJ)
    Paraskevi Papachristou, 8th in Torino, 13,75m. (TJ)
    Athanassia Perra, 13,75m. (TJ)
    Konstantinos Fillipidis, national record holder who was found guilt of doping offence actually because he took something for his flu, came back in 5,20m.
    Nikol Kyriakopoulou and Dimitra Emmanouil started her PV in 4,25m. and 4,20m. respectively
    Stella Pilatou had a best long jump of 6,43m. while Alexandros Papadimitriou continued his good performances with a 73,99m. in hammer...

    Finally, a very good performance was the 6,44m. long jump of 23-year-old Maria Eleni Kafourou the winner of collegiate in USA this winter but the remarkable is that she had this jump with a negative wind -2,7m/sec such as showing that jumps in region of 6,60m. are within reach this year

    In Beograd on took place the 54th Balkan Crosscountry championship.
    Konstantina Kefala won the women's 8km race in 28'28,9 and left Stolic about 6" behind. becoming the 2nd Greek who has managed something like this... Stolic was the winner for the final 3 years...
    At the women's (8km) team's summary, Hellas was 3rd - Serbia was the winner. The second of the Greek championship, Irene Kokkinariou, due to personal problems didnt participate.
    3rd place for Hellas at the men's (12km) summary too -where Turkey won, as its athlete, Fatih Bilgic, too. The greek champion Anastasios Fragos was injured during the race and didnt finish, the second of the Greek Championship, Dimosthenis Magginas, finished 6th.

    Greece's Eleni Kafourou had a great success in tha final of college games being held in Texas as the 23 years old long jumper managed to take tha gold medal with a PB leap of 6,53m. in front of all Americans collegiates and giving her university Boise Idaho the 1st gold medal in women's athletics! Great success....

    Finally in the national 20km chs Evaggelia Xynou, 25th placer last year in the best ever 20km course with a PB of 1.32.19 took easily the honours in 1.33.40 in the abscence of Athanasia Tsoumeleka ( 2 years inegibility due to doping offence ) and the DNF on 6th placer in WCh Elsinki 2005 Athina Papagianni

    Greek & Cypriot Summary - European Indoor Championship 2

    Second place for the Cypriot Kyriakos Ioannou at the mens highjump. Ioannou cleared 2,29 and had none failure jump - the Russian Dmitrik too. Same performance and 6th place -and a new PB- for Konstantinos Baniotis! The event won as expected the Russian Ukhov, the only athlet who cleared 2,32 (and didnt try at another high after that)
    One day before, at the qualification, in the first group (which had a disadvantage) Ioannou cleared 2,30 and qualified, while Baniotis cleared 2,27 and after the results of the 2nd group was qualified too!

    Paraskevi Papachristou at her first attempt at the womens triple jump qualification, landed at 14,47, and about 30cm over the qualif.rule and her personal best! At the final, had 3 failed attempts and was injured while running for her fourth, so she wasn't measured. 1st place for Anastasia Taranova with 14,68, 2nd was Marija Sestak with 14,60, 3rd was Veldakova with 14,40 and NR, NR for Topic -with 14,37- too.

    Konstadinos Douvalivis, the 22-year-old greek champion , who clocked 7"68 (New National record) at the meeting "Athens 2009" 9 days ago, advanced to the 60m hurdles semi-final. He advanced 7.76 and took the 11th place among 27 athletes. 7.85 was quick enough to advance to this afternoon's semi-finals. There, at the strong 2nd semifinal he finished 7th with 7"82 where Svoboda won with 7"55. At the first semifinal, Yevgeniy Borisov, the fastest in Europe, won with 7"60 hitting the last hurdle -at first he was disqualified! Doucoure, the favourite athlet of Douvalidis, won the final of the event

    Huge dissapoint for Louis Tsatoumas (and for the Greek athletes and fans as he was the best with 8,20m among all ), after his failure to advance to the longjump final, where the German Bayer set a new European record landing at 8,71!! His 1st attemp was a NR too with 8,29 (then he let 3 at. and his 5th was X)

    At the womens polevault qualification, Nicole Kiriakopoulou and the Cypriot record holder Marianna Zachariadi, both cleared 4,35 but failed at 4,40 which was beaten by 7 athletes plus Spiegelburg who didnt need to try. At the final, the Russian Golubchicova won with 4,75 and better attempts as Spiegelburg -who set NR

    Antonia Steryiou cleared 1,85 but didn΄t beat 1,89 -which was finally enough for 8+1 athletes to qualifie at the womens highjump. At the final, Blanca Vlasic failed early at 1,96, and Friedrich won clearing 2,01.

    Konstantina Efentaki didnt finish at the second heat of womens 3km.

    At the heats of mens 60m, the Cypriot Panagiotis Ioannou run 6"81 and didnt advance. Chambers was the fastest with 6"53, and at the semifinals set a new European record clocking 6"42 !!! He was the winner at the final too, with 6"46 and let 1dec behind the 2 Italian sprinters -who finished before the other Brittains.
