Saturday in the Topsporthal in Ghent, the BK indooratletiek place. For Nafi Thiam, who in the long jump and the hurdles comes out, it is the only competition in Belgium this winter. Middle of next week she decided on her participation in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Birmingham in early march. For the other Belgians is the BK the last chance to qualify for that world cup.
In the long jump is an olympic and world champion son of Thiam the great favorite. With her personal outdoorrecord of 6m57 in principle a bit too strong for the competition.
In the 60 meter hurdles is a different story. Eline Berings, which is already in place for the world cup, is the pronounced topfavoriete. The 8.35 of Thiam last week in Eaubonne, only the fifth time among the participants. Sarah Missinne was 8.23, and is still only nine hundredths of a shortage for the world cup.
Another away to look out for in Ghent is the 400 metres in the men. Dylan Borlée gives lump sum and chooses the French championships, but Michäel Rossaert and the very young Jonathan Sacoor (18) want to be in the team for the 4×400 metres in Birmingham. They were this year already account for 47.44 and 47.17. Or the twins Borlée is available for the relay race this winter, they have not yet published.
On the 60 meter comes with Robin Vanderbemden one of the rare Belgians in action a waterkansje at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS. He ran all of 6.71, the minimum stands at 6.61. On the 1,500 m and in the high jump with Tarik Moukrime (3:41.53) and Bram Ghuys (2m19) two more athletes to the start in good shape.
In the pole vault as each year a new Belgian record (4m34), Fanny Smets will be in danger. In addition they also come Aurelie De Ryck and Chloé Henry in consideration. Philip Milanov finally dares to, for lack of discus on the indoorprogramma, to the shot put.
