In a competitive 100m hurdles final, European indoor champion Nadine Visser emerged victorious in 12.68, her fastest time outside of the World Championships last year.
The Dutch hurdler finished a metre ahead of Italy’s Luminosa Bogliolo (12.79) and Hungary’s Luca Kozak, who set a PB of 12.83. Finnish record-holder Annimari Korte was fourth in 12.89.
After impressing in the heats with 13.25, Britain’s world indoor champion Andrew Pozzi was a clear winner of the 110m hurdles final with 13.17, the second-fastest time of his career. It also shaved 0.01 from the meeting record. France’s Wilhem Belocian was second in 13.38.
Pozzi’s compatriot Melissa Courtney-Bryant was even more dominant. The European indoor bronze medallist ran away from the field in the second half of the 1500m to win in 4:03.69, just a quarter of a second shy of the PB she set when taking bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Belgium’s Elisa Vanderelst finished more than five seconds adrift to take second place in 4:09.32.
Greece’s Nikoleta Kiriakopoulou took victory in the pole vault on countback from Britain’s Holly Bradshaw. Both women cleared a best of 4.63m to add a centimetre to the meeting record, but Kiriakopoulou’s first-time clearances at the earlier heights gave her the edge.
The other jumping events were similarly close as just two centimetres separated Jazmin Sawyers from fellow Briton Abigail Irozuru in the long jump, 6.54m to 6.52m. Sawyers’ leap equalled the meeting record set 23 years ago by Hungary’s Tunde Vaszi.
