  • Adam Kszczot 800M Dessau

    Any Polish fans out there who can tell us about this 19 year old?

    Beat a pretty good Kenyan (Kivuna) yesterday in Dessau...I know he was in the Euro Indoor finals...didn't medal.

    Along with Marcin Lewandowski and hopefully an in shape Czapiewski, Poland should have a pretty good trio at the Worlds.

    I think his last name is pronounced SHOT.

    Can't give you much background but saw him run in Turin and was impressed as soon as I saw him in the heats. Has great turnover; a lot of potential. To be honest I'm more impressed with him than Lewandowski (who improved to 1:45.03 in Hengelo on the weekend).

      That can't be correct. There aren't enough consonants at the beginning. It's probably just 'ah'.

        He just mıssed a medal at last year's World Junıors, after wınnıng a bronze ın the Euro Junıors a year earlıer. Last weekend (just 3 days before the Dessau race) he ran 47.00 ın faırly poor condıtıons ın the Polısh clubs champıonshıps, so ıt dıd look lıke he was ready to run a fast 2-lapper.

        And hıs name ıs pronounced just the way ıt's wrıtten :P ı.e. K-sh-chot, but of course you can't say ıt properly unless you're Polısh :wink:
        Było smaszno, a jaszmije smukwijne...

          Only one syllable?

          Reminds me of World Chess Champion during the 30ies, Max Euwe of the Netherlands - English speakers mispronounce his surname in a couple dozen different ways, but no matter what you try they never get it right. Eventually, some give up and call him "Max" - and mispronounce that, too.

          Afraid that could happen here...

                      More or less. Of course Turkısh keyboards have the regular dotted i as well, but ıt's ın the wrong place, so I can't be bothered to use ıt - ıt slows down my typıng too much :P

                          Kszczot won a 600m race yesterday in Lahti in 1:14.55, just 0.14 off the Andrea Longo's European best. He finished exactly 1 second ahead of Dmitrijs Milkevics.

                            Mr. Powell....

                            Do you have a link to the Lahti results?

                            That kid is hot.....I dont know if he messed up tactically at the Euro Cup where he was 9th.. and that's not a bad run for Milkevics either.

                              just like bob ctvrtlik.

                              i was watching the paris meeting today on US, and dwight was mispronouncing every name possible (like lavillenie, which he reduced to 2 syllables), then the clincher was when he said that sanya was going for the stadium record held by "marita cook."
