Polish news 2013 - Fajdek 82.27, Włodarczyk 78.22 in Dubnica

Postby Powell » Mon Jun 10, 2013 5:25 am

About time to catch up with what's been going on in Polish T&F so far this outdoor season.

Obviously the big news of the weekend was Małachowski's 71.84, already discussed in other threads, but there was also some amazing HJing in Opole yesterday.
Kamila Stepaniuk improved from a previous PB of 1.93 to 1.99, a new Polish record, finally erasing Danuta Bułkowska's mark from way back in 1984. Justyna Kasprzycka also set a big new best with 1.95 (WCh A qualifier).
In the men's competition, Mutaz Essa Barshim won as expected, but only cleared 2.33 on this occasion (he then had 3 failures at 2.38). But here again there was an excellent result for a Polish jumper, as Szymon Kiecana improved to 2.31, making it three Poles with the A qualifier in one day.

Outside of Poland this weekend, Marcin Lewandowski finished third in Hengelo in his first outdoor race of the year in 1:45.50, missing the A by 0.20. Artur Noga also took third place in 13.47. His SB so far is 13.42 set in Katowice last week.

Karolina Tymińska places second in Kladno with a decent, if not great, score of 6360, safely over the WCh qualifying mark.

In Rabat, Krystian Zalewski finished 9th in the SC, but set a new PB and qualified for Moscow with 8:23.31.

In Floro, Norway, Marcin Krukowski took second in JT with 82.32.

And for an update on Polish junior talent:

A couple of weeks ago Konrad Bukowiecki (b. 17 Mar 97) improved to 22.33 in SP (5k), making him the no. 5 youth performer of all time.

Ewa Swoboda is looking like the biggest talent in Polish female sprints for a long, long time. Still only 15 (born 26 Jul 97), she's already broken the 100 meters national youth record 3 times, taking it to 11.55 (-0.1). It's starting to look like the national junior record might finally go, possibly even this year - that's 11.42 by Ewa Kłobukowska from 1964 (!!!) Swoboda's best last year was 11.97, so she's already progressed a lot this season, and looks to be improving with every race.

On 20 May Patrycja Wyciszkiewicz set a NJR at 400 with 52.48, breaking her own mark of 52.76 from 2012. This was her first (and only, so far) 400 of the season, and run in cold weather, so here's hoping she is going to get much faster by the time of the EJC.

Anita Włodarczyk won in Moscow yesterday with 74.28, beating Lysenko, Klaas and Miankova. Her SB so far is 74.73 she threw when she took second place in Eugene behind Betty Heidler.

Also yesterday, in Prague, Artur Noga missed the WC A qualifier again with 13.48 (his fourth sub-13.50 of the season). The women's 4x1 national team ran 43.83, faster than IAAF's qualifier, but 0.03 off the standard set by the Polish federation, and the men did 39.30.
Łukasz Grzeszczuk placed 3rd in JT with 80.63. He has been one of the biggest surprise of the Polish season so far, extending his PB to 83.98 and now having 6 competitions over 80 meters already.

Given the multitude of questions in the wHJ, she clearly has a podium shot.

Frankly, I'm not convinced at this point. The Opole HJ meet has produced some outlier performances in the last few years, and looking at how many big PB's were set by the jumpers this time, I'd like to see her back it up with at least a couple of 1.95's before I consider her a genuine contender.

Łukasz Parszczyński got a WCh qualifier yesterday in Oslo with 8:25.01, placing 9th.

Anna Rogowska finished third with 4.50, as did Robert Urbanek in DT with 64.58. Neither of them has so far achieved the A qualifier, which is the Polish federation's qualifying standard for Moscow.

Piotr Małachowski NM'ed, as discussed in another thread already, citing back problems and illness. At this point, he still hopes it's a short-term problem caused by recent heavy lifting sessions.

Meanwhile, a couple of weeks ago Monika Pyrek became a mother, giving birth to a son.

No, that's not going to be finalized until after the Kusociński Memorial tomorrow, but it's to be expected that all of Poland's best will be there. 'Fraid Majewski on current form will not be much of a match for Storl, though...

Last week Tomasz Majewski was oficially declared the 2010 European champion after the DQ of Andrey Mikhnevich (who beat him on that occasion by 1 cm).

Wouldn't write off Majewski too soon, he is getting back very quickly at 20.89, to Storl's last two outings, NM and 20.70m, I think it will be a battle ! :D

Has Mikhnevich officially been banned for life and his results struck off starting from the 2005 WC then? What about the others (especially Devyatovskiy with a previous ban)?

(I'd guess Tikhon's failed test in 2005 might not count so much as regards a subsequent life ban as he should have been serving a ban after failing a test in Athens, but still his result from Helsinki should be removed, but maybe I'm wrong...)

The bigger battle will be Harting vs. Malachowski. I think Harting is really pissed off and wants to show Hengelo was a one time thing.

Yes, I would always bet on a fixed foot thrower BUT Malachowski is a big meet performer and has a very stable active release technique, fun and maybe a Championship Record although Alekna's is formidable! :)

Małachowski is having problems with his back, though, and he's been inconsistent this year, probably due to this. In Szczecin, he ended up winning comfortably, but it was only in the fifth round that he got in a good throw - up till that point he was way down in fifth, below 62 meters. When he's on, he's great, but he could bomb out, too.

Clearly I underestimated Majewski. After a series of very poor results, this competition was a big breakthrough, and it gives hope he may progress enough throughout the season to be a medal contender in Moscow.
Storl's NM was a big shock to me, but I still consider him the favorite for Gateshead. BTW, at least one of his attempts in Szczecin was over 21 meters and a marginal foul.

But as far as the ETC go, the duel I'm looking forward to most is Włodarczyk vs. Heidler. These two have clearly been the two top women in the world this year, both throwing consistently well and on an upward curve. Heidler has won both of their confrontations so far this year, but not by much, and it could really go either way. Włodarczyk had some injury problems earlier in the year, so she's still in the process of catching up with her preparations, and I expect that, like Majewski, she will be getting significantly better as the season progresses.

It's been a while since the last update, so a quick update of what's been going on in the last couple of weeks.

The Polish team finished fifth in the ETC, which is an encouraging result. And they ended up only 5 pts. behind France; had Karol Zalewski not been DQed for false starting in the 200, they would have most probably been fourth... Only two individual wins (Fajdek and Kszczot), but a very consistent overall showing.

On the same weekend as the ETC, in Iława, Wojciech Theiner and Piotr Śleboda jumped 2.28 (that was a PB for Śleboda), and Paulina Borys set a national U16 record with 1.80.

And in Szczecin Sofia Ennaoui (b. 1995) ran the 800 in 2:02.72 in what was pretty much a solo effort. At this point, she's the 4th fastest European junior at this distance, as well as no. 1 at 1500 (4:12.05) and no. 2 at 3000 (9:09.26). It remains to be seen which distance(s) she'll do at the EJC, but she'll be a serious medal contender in any case.

Jakub Szyszkowski improved his own national U23 record to 20.16 in Leszno and is the clear no. 1 in Europe in his age category.

Fast forwarding to Ostrava on 26-27 June:
Anita Włodarczyk finished 2nd behind Heidler yet again, although it was even closer this time, and the German only won with her final throw, 75.24 to 74.98. Worryingly, Paweł Fajdek finished only 7th with 74.87 and was actually behind Szymon Ziółkowski (5th place with 75.49).
Piotr Małachowski finished 5th in the high standard DT competition with 66.95, but was only half a meter behind the winner, Martin Wierig.
Marathon specialist Karolina Jarzyńska finished 9th in the 10000 and set a new NR 31:43.51 (old record was 31:52.11 by Dorota Gruca in 2004). The time is a WC A qualifier and the fastest European performance this year. I don't know what her intentions for Moscow are, though - she might still be running the marathon there (she ran 2:26:45 this year in Łódź).
Łukasz Grzeszczuk was 3rd in JT with 81.27.

In Reims on 28 June, Artur Noga ran 13.42. Then 2 days later in Birmingham, he finally got the A standard in Birmingham, running 13.38 in the heats, following that with a wind-aided 13.32 for 3rd place in the final.
Of the other Poles in Birmingham, Tomasz Majewski finished fourth with 20.45, Anna Rogowska was also fourth with 4.53 PB.

Karolina Tymińska was the individual winner at the Euro Multi Events Cup with 6347. Had it not been for a crappy result in HJ (1.66), the score could have been significantly higher, too. Despite poor results by the other Poles, the team finished fifth to remain in the Superleague for another year.

In Watford, Dominika Nowakowska surprisingly qualified for the WC, running the 5000 in 15:16.11. The time makes her the third fastest Pole ever, and the second fastest European so far this year.

On 29 June, there was a 'Poland vs the world' throwing match in Władysławowo:
mSP: Tomasz Majewski 20.16
wDT: Yarelis Barrios CUB 65.00
mHT: Krisztian Pars HUN 80.46, Lukas Melich CZE 79.59, Paweł Fajdek 74.43 :? something seems to be going wrong for him after good performances earlier in the season
mJT: Guillermo Martinez CUB 82.24, Hubert Chmielak 80.02 PB
mDT: Piotr Małachowski 68.53 (his second best result this year), Ehsan Hadadi IRN 65.93, Mario Pestano ESP 65.62
wHT: Anita Włodarczyk 75.28, Yipsi Moreno CUB 73.93 SB

That same weekend, the national U23 champs took place in Bydgoszcz, with the most interesting events being:
m100: Karol Zalewski 10.25 PB, Grzegorz Zimniewicz 10.34
w400: Justyna Święty 52.31 PB, Małgorzata Hołub 52.41 PB

Last time I heard he was recovering from injury and going to make a comeback to competition some time in the second half of July, I believe. Whether he will be in sufficient shape to do anything of note after such a long layoff... I'm skeptical, but we'll have to wait and see.

Marcin Lewandowski got the A qualifier yesterday in Lausanne with 1:44.31, finishing 3rd, behind Aman and Bosse, but ahead of Amos.
Artur Noga ran 13.44 for seventh place, Tomasz Majewski was fifth (20.26) and Żaneta Glanc seventh (62.41).

The Polish junior champs end today in Kraków, and there were a few impressive results in the first two days:
w400: Patrycja Wyciszkiewicz 52.11 NJR EJL, Małgorzata Curyło 53.62 PB, Adrianna Janowicz 54.02 PB Both Wyciszkiewicz and the relay look like sure EJC medalists
m400: Patryk Dobek 46.34 EJL, Rafał Smoleń 46.99
wHT: Malwina Kopron 65.09 (currently 2nd on European list with 66.11, and she also took the silver yesterday in JT!)
mSP: Dawid Krzyżan 20.00 (no. 3 in Europe this year)
m400H: Patryk Adamczyk 51.57

Paweł Fajdek won gold at the Universiade yesterday with 79.99 =SB. Good to see him back to near his best after a couple of crap results recently, but his inconsistency is troubling... Even in yetsterday's competition, his best after 3 rounds was just 76.86. If he did that at the WC, he probably wouldn't make the top 8...
Wojciech Nowicki took 5th place with 75.32, not far off his PB (75.87 from this year)

Time for another update:

First the Universiade:
Kamila Stepaniuk won the HJ with 1.96. It's good to see her confirm the 1.99 was not a total fluke. Now I'm starting to think she can be a contender in the WC; not a likely medalist, but she's capable of finishing in the top 8. Alas, the same can't be said of Justyna Kasprzycka, who also has the A standard... she finished 10th in Kazan with 1.84.
Anna Jagaciak took silver in TJ with 14.21
Both 4x1 relays ended up with bronze medals - the men ran 39.29, the women 43.81
Rafał Omelko finished 4th with a new PB of 45.69 (first time under 46), easily the fastest Polish performance of the year

At the WYC in Donetsk, the only Polish medalist was Natalia Chacińska in LJ with a PB of 6.22 (bronze). Otherwise, world leader Konrad Bukowiecki finished 5th in SP with 20.10, Ewa Swoboda was 4th at 100m (11.61), Katarzyna Furmanek 6th in HT (66.64), Kamila Przybyła 7th in PV (4.05) and the boys' relay finished 6th (1:53.36)

And in the Euro U23s, Poland ended up with 8 medals:
m200: gold Karol Zalewski 20.41 PB and WC A qualifier :D
mSP: gold Jakub Szyszkowski 19.78, silver Dominik Witczak 19.63 PB
w4x400: gold 3:29.74 WC qualifier
mPV: silver Robert Sobera 5.60
m4x100: silver 38.81
w400: bronze Justyna Święty 52.22 PB, 4th place Małgorzata Hołub 52.28 PB
w100H: silver Karolina Kołeczek 13.30, 4th Urszula Bhebhe 13.42

On the first day of the Euro Junior Champs:
Andrzej Regin took the bronze in SP with 20.07 PB. Dawid Krzyżan, the leader after 3 rounds, ended up out of the medals in 4th with 19.98.
Patrycja Wyciszkiewicz and Patryk Dobek were the second and first fastest qualifiers for the 400 finals with 52.61 and 46.44, respectively. Karolina Makul was also the best qualifier in DT with 51.79. All three of them are very likely medalists in today's finals.

Apart from the championship meets:
Marcin Lewandowski ran 1:44.32 in Madrid, finishing 2nd behind B. Johnson
Anna Rogowska finally got the A qualifier for Moscow with 4.60 in Słupsk two days ago

Her time was also the fastest winning time at the European Junior Champs since 1979!

Katarzyna Kowalska won a 3000H race in Bottrop/GER today in 9:42.38, which in case she needs it is below the IAAF A-standard. Kinda surprised to see a polish name in the results, is there no requirement for polish athletes to compete at the national championships?

Yes, there is. But she might still make it to Toruń to compete there on Sunday.

I don' think I've seen aby official announcements, but It looks like they are.
Speaking of retirements, Marek Plawgo announced he would call it quits after these championships. He's been trying to come back to top shape with Little success in the last couple of years, and struggling with various injuries, and he's now given up hope of making it.
