Saturday evening, Innsbruck saw a veritable firework display of athletic performance at the kick-off of the Golden Fly Series. With its best start list since the creation of this well-loved in-city event, the show was as exciting as could be anticipated! In perfect conditions, the performances on the FlySwat were outstanding.

The Men’s Pole Vault competition was in the hands of Portugal’s Edi Maia who won with a jump of 5.50m having gone out of the competition when he failed to jump the World Championships qualification mark of 5.65. World Youth Champion Robert Renner was second with 5.40m and local hero Lukas Wirth equalled his personal best with 5.20m, also the qualifying mark for the European U23 Championships in Tallin!

The women’s pole vault was exceptional and the favourite, no.1 in the world rankings Fabiana Murer (BRA) was able to secure the coveted ‘Golden Shingle’ (Goldene Dachschindel) with a juml of 4.60, pushing number two on the world list Lisa Ryzih into second place. World Junior Record holder Alena Lutkovskaya finished in third with 4.40m while local heroine Kira Grünberg had to settle with a jump of 4.00 which left room for improvement.
