• Gianmarc Tamberi 2.38m breaks Italian High Jump Record in Hustopece

Article source: Athletics

Gianmarco Tamberi set a new Italian high jump record of 2.38m at the international high jump meeting in Hustopece, Czech republic on Saturday (13).

Last week in Banska Bystrica the 23-year-old Tamberi opened his season with an impressive personal best of 2.35m. The Italian rising high jump star showed on Saturday that he will be the man to beat  at the world indoor championships as he cleared 2.38m and set a new Italian record and world leading mark.

“I can say that 2.40m is now the goal that I have in my head. It’s too bad I wasn’t able to get it (in Hustopece) because the conditions from the surface to the atmosphere were there.” said Tamberi.

The second place in the men's high jump contest took little known high jumper Chris Baker of Great Britain, who set a new personal best  and a new British record of 2.36m. What is more than impressive that until Saturday the-31-year old Briton's personal best was 2.28m.  

Finally, third place in the men's high jump contest took Italy's Marco Fassinotti, who cleared 2.30m. 

In another meeting in the city of Malmo reigning world indoor champion Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar jumped 2.36m for the win.
