Oh hi everyone! Estonia has also a huge number of athletes at the EC this time - 23, not sure if it's the most ever though. Our World Champion in javelin Andrus Värnik is not going, he injured his elbow and hasn't been good this whole season. But our discus men Gerd Kanter and Alex Tammert 'should' bring a medal at least. Our athletics is doing better than in the past but as we're a small nation there are not many at the very top.
Enjoy watching the European Championships!

Apart from Smith you can look out for Simon Vroemen (steeple chase), Lornah Kiplagat (10k), Karin Ruckstuhl (if you're Swedish, you might know her as one of the women fighting for second place at the heptathlon) and Bram Som (800m).

I'm from Belgium so I know most of the dutch athletes. I always watch the dutch tv because belgian tv sucks

She's crazy as is gets, but what an athlete! Mucho respect for Carolina. Nice second place for Karin Ruckstuhl too! First medal for Holland at the EC and a trashing of her own national record.

Pognon fails again, this is not a surprise.

Obikwelu did it easily and as for Klüft, she keeps on winning, though it's better when the Barber is there, makes it more interesting.
