Striv­ing for glory in Lon­don

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek ath­lete Paraskevi Pa­pachris­tou makes an at­tempt in the women’s triple­jump qual­i­fi­ca­tion dur­ing the World Ath­let­ics Cham­pi­onships in Lon­don on Satur­day. Pa­pachris­tou, a Euro­pean bronze medal­ist, was not in the best of form on the day and failed to make the triple-jump fi­nal, man­ag­ing only 13.40 me­ters and 13.75 me­ters – way be­low the 14.20-me­ter thresh­old needed. Lon­don is host­ing the IAAF and IPC 2017 World Cham­pi­onships. It is the Bri­tish cap­i­tal’s big­gest ath­let­ics event since it hosted the 2012 Olympic Games.
