The Russian and British athletes are prevailing


Looking back at Hustopece High Jump meeting 1999 – 2018 (part 3)

The Russian and British athletes are prevailing

It seems almost unbelievable that during 19 years of the meeting Hustopčské Skákání the audience in the city sports hall could have seen in total 220 athletes from 47 countries all over the world (Fun fact: M. Skotnik once represented Germany and later France after changing of his Nationality). Obviously, the majority of them was from Europe (28 countries), but the rest was from America (8), Asia (8) and Africa (3). If we focus on the number of individuals from each state, besides Czechthe winner country is Russia with 24 athletes and UK with 15 competitors in the main categories.The fact that the British athletic team has been doing a high jump training camp in Hustopeče in recent years is demonstrated by the number of their competitors in categories B, juniors and teenagers. Hustopečské Skákání is also a favourite meeting for competitors from Ukraine, Slovakia, Italy and USA. In the youth categories, the neighboring Slovaks are the most frequent guests.
