Sergey Klyugin clears 2,24

Reigning Olympic champion Sergey Klyugin has fully recovered following surgery and has now resumed competing. While in his Oslo debut Sergey only managed a 2,15 performance, today he produced a 2,24 effort, clearing all previous heights on his first attempt, and shared the top of the podium with Aleksey Kravtsov, who was also perfect on the day.

In his second race of the year, Dmitriy Golovastov improved on his season’s best from the Moscow championships by running a 46,31 quarter, and middle distance runner Dmitriy Bogdanov set a PR of 46,50 over the same distance.
