Baker is coming back to Hustopeče

The list of the men"s competitors at Hustopečské Skákání was just update does  British high jumper Chris Baker, who can be remembered for his breathtaking fight with Italian Gianmarco Tamberi   in 2016. At that time he created his absolute PB of 236 cm. After a not very successful last season, he would like to go off to a good start here and especially get himself to Glasgow European Indoor Championship.

In addition to Baker, his fellow teammate Tom Gale will also compete in Hustopeče (PB 230 cm) and three completely new athletes can be expected as well. Fernando Carvalho Ferreira is the second best Brazilian high jumper of the last season, with a personal best of 230 cm. We will see this Brazilian athlete in Hustopeče  for the first time in history, as well as a competitor from Puerto Rico. That is Luis Joel Castro Rivera, who was in the finale of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro     in 2016. The last newcomer is currently the best Turkish high jumper Alperen Acet. This 20-year-old young man has a huge career in front of him, but he already have a great PB of 230 cm from last year’s season.
