The life-shape of Ewa Soboda, the return to sprinting by Martina Kotoica and the second youth of Marika Popovic-Drapaka – all this gave much hope for the promotion of the Polish 4x100m relay to the World Cup in Eugene.
Polish women, including Stefanowicz, Kotwiła, Popowicz-Drapała and Swoboda, started the first race. Unfortunately, the changes to our runners weren’t the best and didn’t turn out to be an advantage for them, as they would get an advantage.
Biao-Czerwone finished sixth with a time of 43.19 seconds. Although this was our runners best result of the season, it was too weak to qualify for the finals. In total, Polish women took 11th place.
Promotion to the final was achieved with 42.73 (Switzerland), the last time Polish women ran so fast 12 years ago (42.68 – national record and bronze medal at the European Championships in Barcelona). https://t.co/OsK52EywS1
