Last night’s 13th International Golden Roof Challenge played out before the Golden Roof in Innsbruck, the home of the Golden Fly Series. A highlight in the athletics season, this elite in-city event inspired thousands of fans in the inner city. The gods looked kindly on the competitors and after an intense downpour shortly before the warm-up, the weather cleared and there was nothing to prevent the competitions going ahead.

The men's long jump gave first-class results, with the magical 8 meter mark achieved twice. Paralympic world record holder Markus Rehm (GER) won with an excellent 8.13 m, missing his own meeting record by just 5 cm. Czech record holder Radek Juska was second marking 8.00 m. Third place went to World Junior Champion Miltiadis Tentoglu (GRE). In the women's event, double-European champion Darya Klishina (ANA) was able to jump a winning 6.46 m ahead of Ukraine’s Krystyna Hryshutyna with 6.31 m. Austria's world U20 champion in heptathlon, Sarah Lagger, was happy with third place, jumping 6.13 m.
