Kazan Universiade 6/7- 17/7 strong RUS team

Postby Gabriella » Wed Jul 03, 2013 12:29 am

The Universiade starts in a few days and Russia is sending a strong team. Not surprising since it is hosting the event in Kazan, the capital of it's Tatarstan Republic.

Some names confirmed to start:

Shubenkov, Trenikhin (relay only) Uhkov, Mudrov, Menkov, Fyodorov, Samitov, Tarabin, Ioradn, Krivov,Ustalova, Korulskaya, Sharmina, Golovkina, Zaripova, Ryzhova (relay only) Kuchina, Sokolova (LJ) Sokolova (Walk), Kirdyapkina, Koneva, Tarasova, Abakumova, Chernova.

Russian winners will receive $5000 from the Russian Government plus another $8500 from the local Tartarstan government. However, The timing of this in relation to the Russian championships is quite close (22nd to 25th July), so I'm surprised someone like Ustalova is running, considering her event is usually the most competitive at the Russian nationals. There could be a condition that any Russian winners here auto qualify for Moscow though as has happened in the past. Chernova is down and I presume for the heptathlon.

Note the Moscow Championships start from tomorrow, 4th to the 5th.

The Kenyan and Ethiopian women steeplechasers have been butting heads all spring/summer, but Zaripova has yet to "splash", having run just a 5000 in 15:38.1h May 13. This could be the year she takes Galkina's WR down. I'm sure she would love to emulate Galkina's fete of a WR in a global championship, especially in her home country.

I'm not surprised as a lot of the younger Russians attend Kazan. It's kind like 'Luffbra' in Britain. Best coaches, best facilities and in a beautiful area of Russia in geography and weather.

Yuliya Zaripova has it in her. Needs right conditions and reason. She is a great tactical runner though, controls the race and pace how she wants it, slower early rounds but really brutal in the second half. She doesn't seem bother by times though, she runs to win.

BYW, where and when did she run the 5000m? I didn't catch that one. It's a huge improvement on her 2010 16:02:81

Tatarstan champs, Kazan, 13 May. Obviously, neither the 16:02 nor this, represents her ability at 5K.

Started yesterday.

Lesnoi won mSP at 20.30. The other noteworthy thing so far is that van der Plaetsen is off to an excellent start in the decathlon; after 11.12 (+0.1) and 780 (+0.5) in the first two events he's up 67 points on his 8157 from 2011.

Unfortunately this and the Euro U23s overlap, weakening both.

SP:
Knobel 16.00
Kharlamov 14.70
Sviridov 14.23
van der Plaetsen 13.48

Quick projection after 3 events:
van der Plaetsen 8242
Knobel 8234

Van der Plaetsen is a very inconsistent high jumper, interesting to see how that event will go. He jumped 217 in Daegu but I think 210 would be a good result for him here.

Van der Plaetsen's projection goes down a little bit with 207 and 49.36, but both are normal results for him; he still has every chance of beating his PB. Knobel DNS for the 400m, so van der Plaetsen is now a clear favorite for the gold. Sviridov projects at just over 8000 and looks good for silver; bronze is up for grabs.

mHT was good:
Fajdek 79.99
Lomnický 78.73 PB
Litvinov 78.08

wLJ:
Klishina 690
Sokolova 673

Van der Plaetsen had a very bad 1500, losing 13 seconds compared to the projection, but due to an excellent PV (530) he still just beats his PB at 8164.

Today's other highlights:

Krivov 1:20.47 (CR)
Dmytrenko 1:20.54

Mudrov 231
Protsenko 231

Titimets 54.64

Davydova 54.79

Mukasheva (KAZ) 1:58.96
Kupina 1:59.57

The heptathlon is underway, which sees 3 of the top ten finishers from London compete; Chernova, Savitskaya and Ikauniece.

Chernova had a mediocre hurdles but good HJ and SP. She has a comfortable elad with her strongest events still to come. Savitskaya was below par in her first two events & lost valuable points in the HJ but had a strong SP.

After 3 events:

Chernova: 13.63/ 1.86/ 13.92 (2874)
Klucinova: 14.12/ 1.86/ 13.57 (2780)
Zsivoczky-Farkas: 13.97/ 1.83/ 13.60 (2766)
Savitskaya: 13.97/ 1.77/ 14.42 (2746)
Ikauniece: 13.85/ 1.80/ 12.88 (2697)

Chernova has extend her lead to 300 pts after 5 events. Her 200 was a little off but she still sneaked under 24. Her LJ was at the level it has been in majors in recent years; 6.48. Solid running and jumping has seen Ikauniece now move into second place, while Savitskaya continues to disappoint. Zsivoczky-Farkas has been doing well and is still in the top 3:

1 CHERNOVA Tatiana RUS - 4862
13.63/ 1.86/ 13.92/ 23.93/ 6.48

2 KAUNIECE Laura LAT - 4582
13.85/ 1.80/ 12.88/ 24.08/ 6.20

3 ZSIVOCZKY-FARKAS Gyorgyi HUN - 4563
13.97/ 1.83/ 13.60/ 25.43/ 6.32

4 KLUCINOVA Eliska CZE - 4534
14.12/ 1.86/ 13.57/ 24.71/ 5.97

5 SAVITSKAIA Kristina RUS - 4530
13.97/ 1.77/ 14.42/ 25.12/ 6.19

Chernova is comfortably on for a WL; if she throws 46m and runs a sub 2:12 she can score 6600pts. 50m and a 2:11 and she is creeping towards 6700.

It's going to be a great battle for second and third with 50 pts separating the next 4 who are all 46m+ JThrowers. As Decfan often points out, 800m PBs dont always reflect ability because of placings, how near they are to medals and big scores etc, but none of the women are 'slow' in that event either.

Farkas has been setting PBs or been near to them throughout the meet. She is a 47m JThrower and her 800m PB is 2:14.

Ikauniece set PBs in the SP and 200m and of course can throw over 53m in the JT. Her 800m PB is just outside 2:12. A 51 and 2:13 will see her very near her PB of 6414.

Klucinova can also throw over 50m and did 49.99 in Gotzis. Her 800 level has been around 2:16 for the last couple of seasons but her PB is is under 2:13

Savitskaya, most definitely the disappointment of the event for me, can throw near 47m and run 2:12.

At this point and on current form you would expect Ikauniece to secure silver, with Klucinova probably edging Farkas for bronze, but that battle will be close.
