All did not go well for Konstanze Klosterhalfen at the Diamond League meeting of track and field athletes. Mateusz Przybylko will not be satisfied either.

eight days After her European title at a distance of 5000 meters in Munich The 25-year-old from Leverkusen finished only 12th in 8:45.36 minutes. And Francine Niyonsaba of Burundi won with a time of 8: 26.80 minutes.

Former European champion Mateusz Przybylko of Leverkusen was able to jump only 2.20 metres. He had to settle for seventh place. World and European champion Ukrainian Andrij Protsenko won by 2.24 meters ahead of Qatari Olympic champion Mutaz Issa Barshim, who was the same height.

World pole vault record holder Armand Duplantis had already demonstrated his exceptional stature the day before. After winning the European Championships in Munich, the Swede showed no signs of fatigue in Lausanne either. He won by 6.10 metres.

Lyles wins, but the world record is out of reach

Noah Lyles’ hope for a world record over 200m in Switzerland didn’t materialize either. As the winner, the world champion from the USA was leading at 19.56 seconds, thus far from Jamaican Usain Bolt’s great time in 2009 (19.19).

Over 100 meters there was an outside success for American Alia Hobbs, who won by 10.87 seconds over Jamaica’s Sherika Jackson (10.88). Jamaica’s Eileen Thompson-Hera, who clocked the second fastest time of all time this year at 10.54sec, was disqualified for a false start.

World champion Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce (Jamaica) injured herself while warming up and was unable to start.
