Matthews Jobek took second place in the track and field competition at Nechwizdy, near Prague (Czech Republic).
There were 3 contenders in the hill competition in Nechwizdy: Reynolds Banjo (Great Britain), Yaroslav Isachenkov (Ukraine) and Matthews Jobek representing Poland. In addition to the solo competition, the organizers have also classified competitors in mixed pairs. Matthews partner was Linda Socha, actress of AK ŠKODA Plzeň. Together they took second place. There was also a shot put competition and a high jump during the entire athletics event.
Reynolds Banjo won the competition, with a distance of 7.73 m, Matthews Yubek came second with a score of 7.57 m, and Yaroslav Isachenkov finished third – 7.29 m.
Last Wednesday, Jopek participated in an international track and field indoor track meeting with a large number of employees in Ostrava. His best distance was 7.50 meters, but the opponent had problems with proper sprinting and had one attempt at six jumps. Even earlier, on January 30, the Polish champion from Jaworzyna Śląska participated in the competition in Toruń, which he won with a score of 7.52 meters and did not burn a jump.
The internal Polish championships will take place in two weeks, so there is time for corrections and improvements. Another big sporting event is the European Championship, which will be held in March at Arena Toruń. So we keep our fingers crossed to improve the results.
