Poland’s Ewa Swoboda and Nadine Visser from the Netherlands are the latest high profile recruits for the ISTAF Indoor in Dusseldorf in Germany on Sunday (20), a World Athletics Indoor Tour Silver meeting.
Swoboda made a sensational comeback from her annus horribilis on Friday evening at the Orlen Cup in Lodz where she stopped the clock at 7.04 in the 60m heats before blazing to a 7.00 clocking in the final to come within 0.08 of the world indoor record and move to equal third on the European all-time list.
The 60m line-up in Dusseldorf also includes her successor as European indoor 60m champion Ajla Del Ponte from Switzerland and a strong domestic contingent which is headed by European 100m silver medallist Gina Luckenkemper.
Visser will make a belated season’s debut after injury in the 60m hurdles. The two-time European indoor champion will face in-form Finnish sprint hurdler Reetta Hurske who will be looking for a double on German soil after winning at the ISTAF Indoor in Berlin earlier this month. Former European indoor and outdoor champion Cindy Roleder also continues her comeback from pregnancy.
Previously announced stars confirmed for the ISTAF Indoor in Dusseldorf include home favourite Malaika Mihambo and world champion Sam Kendricks from the United States in the pole vault.
