  • Gotzis Hypo Meeting preview Nadine Broersen

    Well , its been an amazing year so far with the highlight of course being Nadine's Gold Medal victory at the World Indoor Championships - Sopot . Her Pentathlon total of 4830 points is a new Nederlands National Record and her achievement can be compared to Carolina Kluft's victory at the 2003 World Indoor Championships - Birmingham , her 4933 points just 103 above Nadine's score , and we can also compare to Nataliya Dobrynska's Silver Medal at the 2004 World Indoor Championships - Budapest , this was Nataliya's first International medal and her 4727 points is 103 less than Nadine's score, amazing symmetry !! .

    As Nadine stood on the podium in Sopot as the Nederlands National Anthem played, the worlds sports media wondered who the blond girl from Holland was and how did she climb so quickly onto the world stage . To those who knew her better , Nadine arrived on the world stage at the Gotzis Hypo Meeting 2012 , her 6298 points qualified her for the London Olympics where she placed 13th with a 6319 points PB. Roll forward 1 year and 10 months and her World Heptathlon Ranking is 5 and her World High Jump Ranking is 48 . And now she returns to Gotzis to push for a podium position again after her 2nd place and 6345 points PB at the Gotzis Hypo Meeting 2013. Nadine has had three solid training blocks this year , Potchefstroom - South Africa , Tenerife and at the CAR Barcelona and is fit and injury free. This could be the one occasion where you would say to Nadine , just relax and enjoy the Event but she is a hungry driven athlete with an appetite for success and this weekend maximum points are on the menu.

      100m HURDLES - Nadine wants a solid start to the Event and she has been close to her PB in the two recent Events - 13.50
      HIGH JUMP - She doesn't have an advantage here with strong competition from Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Nafi Thiam, a new National Record looms large - 1.93m PB NR
      SHOT PUT - She needs a solid throw to keep the points ticking over - 14.50m PB
      200m - Coach Ronald and Nadine have targeted a PB , her split times in the 150m in the recent Event shows she on track to do just that - 24.85 PB
      LONG JUMP - Again a solid jump to keep the points ticking over, she did launch her PB out to 6.34m recently - 6.30m
      JAVELIN - One of Nadine's strengths and here she has a clear advantage, great chance to maximise points - 55.10m PB
      800m - She hates it , 435m above sea level , she just needs a solid time to finish off the Event - 2:13.00
      TOTAL - 6746 points NR PB
