Ukrainian athletes won two medals at 800m at the European Championships in athletics.
Almost the entire distance to the Ukrainian athletes ran in the middle of the group.
But on the last turn they made a breakthrough on the outer radius – and both won medals.
Gold – of Nataliya Pryshchepa with a time of 2:00.38, bronze – Olga Lanovoi (2:00.79).
For Natalia it is the second consecutive gold in the European Championships in this discipline. In 2016, she won the competition in Amsterdam, breaking the 800 meters in 1:59.70 minutes, reports tribuna.com.
We will remind, Prischepa remembered in this championship, not only winning move, but her humanity.
In qualifying after winning his race, Natalia instead of celebrating went to help a competitor who fell, and brought her to the finish line.
“I was very happy that the podium will be two Ukrainian women. It’s cool!” – said after the finish Prischepa.
