A national challenge with the eye on the Worlds

Two years after the last edition, the Luxembourg indoor championships return to La Coque, three weeks before the big world meeting in Belgrade (March 18-20) and after a winter when 22 national records were broken. This will be an opportunity for the candidates for the last places on the plane to Serbia to try again to reach the minimums.

François Grailet only needs three hundredths of a second to reach the 7.72 necessary to score his ticket over 60m hurdles. The 27-year-old athlete has already improved his Luxembourg record several times this winter and can believe in a qualification for his first world championships.

Tokyo Olympic finalist

Already qualified for the 1,500m thanks to his very good winter, Charel Grethen will line up for the 800m on Sunday. Over her favorite distance, the Olympic finalist from Tokyo broke the national record again last week in Birmingham in 3’37″38. improve for the umpteenth time this winter his Luxembourg record in the 60m (7″26).

Bob Bertemes, who has only contested two contests this winter, will try to retain his national weight title once again.
