The European Championships in Athletics will start on Saturday in Chorzov. The Polish national team will defend the championship title, but the task will be very difficult due to the many injuries in the Polish national team.
As the Polish news agency reported on Thursday, Marcin Lewandowski, who recently returned from Boston, where he finished fourth in the Miles race, will not start in DME due to gastrointestinal causes. Pole time was 4:02. Clayton Murphy won by 4:1. Lewandowski will be replaced by Michał Rozmys.
This morning, the Polish Athletics Association TT informed that Piotr Lisek will not appear in Chorzów due to health reasons. His spot in the pole vault will be taken by Robert Sopra (more here).

Already when announcing the composition of the Polish national team, it turned out that the event will be missing – for various reasons – some stars, including. Anita Ludarchik, Maria Andrejsek, Iowa Soboda, Iga Baumgart-Witan, Piotr Machowski, Adam Kzczot, Joanna Govec and Sofia Inoue
The representation of Ukraine, where two coronavirus cases have been detected, will not participate in the DME either. This means that only seven teams will play in Khorezov: Poland, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, France and Spain. The absence of the Ukrainians means that in two years they will be competing in the first DME League (more here).
