Six Greek track and field athletes will be heading to the European Indoor Championships next month in Prague after meeting qualifying standards.

Long-jump champion Louis Tsatoumas won gold at a Moscow meeting on Feb. 1 with a leap of 8.05 meters (26.41 feet), the third best in the world this year. He won silver in last summer’s outdoor championships and surpassed the standard of 7.95 meters (26.08 feet).

High-jumper Costas Baniotis also qualified, clearing 2.28 meters (7.48 feet) in Moscow, where he finished third.

Costas Douvalidis made it with a run of 7.63 seconds in the 60-meter hurdles at a meeting held in Piraeus on Jan. 31.

Female pole-vaulters did well, with Nicole Kyriakopoulou soaring 4.68 meters (15.35 feet) in France, a few hours after Katerina Stefanidi recorded a personal best of 4.61 meters (15.12 feet) in Arizona.

Greece’s national pole vault champion Costas Filippidis cleared 5.60 meters (18.37 feet) for the second time in a few days, this time in Dusseldorf.
