Yulimar Rojas and Ana Peleteiro in search of World ans Spanish records
Day after we are getting closer to the great moment. The Meeting Villa de Madrid will have many incentives at the trach for next February 21st and today we can add two more to the already known of being the World Indoor Tour final. Today we can add that the female triple jump is going also to be included in the timetable of that day out of the official WIT timetable. That will make Yulimar Rojas and Ana Peleteiro compete in Gallur.
From today fans have one more argument to fill the indoor track of Gallur. Yulimar Rojas will step on Madrid, city where it has always achieved good results. The Venezuelan is, in addition to the current Olympic silver medalist, double outdoor world champion (London 2017 and Doha 2019) and indoor (Portland 2016 and Birmingham 2018). Yulimar flew over Madrid’s sand a year ago winning the triple jump with 14,92 and she also won in another Spanish city, Andujar, getting near the world record (15,50) last September 6th with 15,41, both top of the 2019 top lists. That’s why Rojas, trained by Ivan Pedroso, will try and improve the best jump in an indoor triple jump achieved by the Russian Tatyana Lebedeva with 15,36 in 2004, and she will also try and reach the world record of Inessa Kravets set with 15,50 since 1995.
And as if this was not enough the Spanish fans will enjoy another time with the jumps of Ana Peleteiro. The Spaniard is the current European indoor champion (Glasgow 2019) and world indoor bronze medalist (Birmingham 2018). Precisely in that continental championship she got the gold medal with a new Spanish record of 14,73. That will be another incentive for the fans, the fact that she could get close or even break again that national record. This event with this two athletes competing add more arguments for this Meeting Villa de Madrid that wants to overcome the best of its indoor history.
