Oiglane returns from injury with victories in Tallinn

After missing the Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships due to injury, Janek Oiglane made winning comebacks to the multi-events at the International Combined Events Meeting in Tallinn, Estonia on 2-3 February, inform European Athletics.

Fourth in the decathlon at the IAAF World Championships in London two years ago, Oiglane threatened the world-leading mark of 6124 points in the heptathlon (although that mark was later surpassed by Thomas van der Plaetsen) with his total of 6085 points across the seven events at the European Athletics Indoor Permit Meeting.

Oiglane’s score was also a lifetime best for the heptathlon and he set a spree of individual indoor lifetime bests across the seven events: 7.07 in the 60m, 7.24m in the long jump, 15.16m in the shot put, 8.13 in the 60m hurdles and 5.19m in the pole vault - the latter also an outright lifetime best.

Oiglane is currently third on the 2019 European lists and looks in line to qualify for the heptathlon at the Glasgow 2019 European Athletics Indoor Championships from 1-3 March.

Oiglane took the plaudits in Tallinn ahead of teammate Karl-Robert Saluri with 5950 points with overnight leader Manuel Eitel from Germany third with 5905 points.
