Posted by: Watch Athletics

Anna Kielbasinska continued her successful indoor season by setting a Polish record and a new World lead in the 400m at the Czech Indoor Gala in Ostrava on Thursday night.

The polish athlete clocked 51.10 seconds to win the women's 400m in Ostrava just one week after setting a 400m World Lead in Karlsruhe.

Kielbasinska broke the previous Polish record, which was previously held by Justyna Swiety-Ersetic at 51.34. 

Several national records were broken in the men's 1500m race. British 800m runner Elliot Giles stepped up in the distance to win the 1500m in a new meeting record of 3:35.93. 

Behind the Briton, three national indoor records were broken. Ismael Debjani set a Belgian record of 3:36.38 to take second. Lithuanian Simas Bertasius was fourth with a new national record of 3:38.32. Ilya Karnavukhau improved the Belarusian record to 3:38.47 to take fifth.

In the women's pole vault Iryna Zhukwent over 4.71m on her first attempt to win the event in a new meeting record.

Another meeting record was set in the men's long jump. Thobias Montler from Sweden in his very last attempt flew 8.21m beating Reigning Olympic and European champion Miltiadis Tentoglou who managed 8.15m in round 6.

Aurele Vandeputte narrowly beat Romanian Catalin Tecuceanu to win the men's 800m in a new PB of 1:47.41. Runner up Tecuceanu also clocked a new PB of 1:47.43. Kenya's Noah Kibet was third with an indoor lifetime best of 1:47.76.
