The biggest sprinting sensation runs 200 meters in Zagreb

The start list of the 72nd Boris Hanžeković Memorial – WA Continental Tour Gold meeting guarantees that numerous meeting records will be seriously threatened during the three days of competition.

The 200-meter athlete’s race also guarantees a true sprinting spectacle, as the biggest sprinting teenage sensation – Erriyon Knighton – is on the starting list.

Knighton ran in the finals of the Tokyo Olympics at 17, won world bronze in Eugene at 18, and his 19.49 in the 200m is the fifth best of all time and by far the best at that age.

Knighton, however, will not be the only who will challenge the meeting record (19.88). Reynier Mena, who ran 19.63 this year, will also run at the Mladost Stadium on 11 September, as well as Joseph Fahnbulleh, who placed fourth at the World Championship in Eugene, whose season best is 19.83.

Equally spectacular, and even more spectacular by name, will be the triple jumpe competition.

Maybe the best triple jumper of all time, two-time Olympic and four-time world champion Christian Taylor, whose 18.21 is the second best result in the history of this discipline, is on the start list.

The first favorite to win and break the meeting record (17.16) is, however, the current world runner-up and indoor world record holder (18.07) Hugues Fabrice Zango, who this year has a result of 17.55.

Donald Scott (PB 17.43) and Alexis Copello (PB 17.68) are also on the start list.
