Posted by: Watch Athletics

Gothenburg Grand Prix 2020, the World athletics bronze level series takes place Saturday, August 29.

The women's pole vault

Holly Bradshaw the British record-holder (4.81m), the multiple medalists at World and European championships, will take on local Swedish stars Angelica Bengtsson, the three-time European championships bronze medalist, and national record holder Michaela Meijer.

Among the three vaulters, Meijer has produced the best mark this season with her impressive Swedish record performance of 4.83m on August 1 in Norrköping. Bradshaw's season-best mark is 4.73m while former Swedish record holder Bengtsson has cleared 4.71m this year.

Men's 800m

On the paper, the fastest man in the field is Australian Peter Bol who has clocked 1:44.96 this term. Another very good 800m performer is Sweden's Andreas Kramer who missed his 1:45.03 national record by 0.01 seconds when finishing third at Stockholm DL last Friday. Daniel Rowden of Great Britain with his seasons best mark of 1:45.55 is another strong athlete that will be in the mix for the win. Aussie Joshua Ralph, a 1:45 runner will be the pacemaker.

Women's 800m

The biggest star in the women's 800m field is the 2019 World championships silver medalist Ravnyn Rogers of the United States. Rogers finished second at Stockholm Diamond League last Friday in a season's best of 2:01.02. Germany's Christina Hering (PB 1:59.41), the silver medalist at last year's Universiade, is also in field.
