In a race that was totally championship indoors, the women's 1,500m was quite satisfying, especially when Holly Ache was reinstated. This is Stuart Weirs' 5th piece on day 2!

The women's long jump was an amazing competition on Day 2. The last round had a huge 6.92m jump by Marya Bekh-Romanchuk, taking the lead from Malaika Mihambo, who had led with her 6.88m, until the big leap. Stuart Weir wrote his 4th piece of the day on the women's LJ, an exciting competition.

The women's pole vault was mesmerizing on Day 2! The drama was always there, as it is in the pole vault. Stuart Weir wrote this piece as his third piece on day 2 of the 2021 European indoor championships.

What an incredible Saturday! The 2021 EA Indoor Champs has had amazing distribution on the medals, with 14 counties now represented!

This is story 1 in six today by Stuart Weir, and he begins with an excellent one!

I used this workout to see how tough I was. I did it on a baseball Diamond, and sometimes a soccer pitch. Ealy in the season, this workout was a good one. Enjoy.

This is update on day 1 by EME News on some exciting notes on day one.

This is the updated version of the Men's 1,500m piece. As editor (that's me, Larry Eder), I decided to post both pieces. The Men's 1,500m happened in real-time and the rule is, well, one that makes athletics look silly. The athlete was captured on a photo showing the happiness of winning and must have experienced something less than positive on the DQ.

Indoor athletics is like roller derby anyway, and with 13 middle-distance runners on a 200m track, in a championship event, physical entanglements will happen. 13 middle distance runners on a 200m track going at 3:54 mile pace mean that someone could go down.

Jakub Ingebrigtsen could have gone down, he did not. He did not impede the athletes or gain an advantage. Hopefully, officials can see the video and note that Jakub was not in any way doing something wrong, he was doing what we all want to see him do: compete with emotion and power.

And that, he did.

This is the original piece on the Men's 1,500m, when Jakub Ingebrigtsen was disqualified at the end of the race, due to a lane violation. We will post the second version next.
