Final entries available for European Combined Events Team Championships
The final entries for the European Combined Events Team Championships Super League in Lutsk, Ukraine on 6-7 July are available and can be found here.
Ukraine won the overall trophy two years ago in Tallinn and their team features the very experienced Oleksiy Kasyanov - the individual runner-up in the decathlon on three occasions - and Daryna Sloboda and Rimma Buinenko, both of whom have surpassed the 6000 point-barrier for the heptathlon.
But after narrowly losing out to the Ukrainians on home turf two years ago, the Estonians have fielded a team capable of reversing the outcome in Lutsk.
The Estonians did have individual success to celebrate in Tallinn and their team for next weekend features reigning individual champion and world fourth-placer Janek Oiglane as well as Maicel Uibo who has the highest total based on season’s best performances with 8353 points.
Similarly, the leading entrant in the heptathlon based on season’s best performances is Estonia’s Grit Sadeiko who scored 6162 points in Talence last weekend.
The Belarusian team features European decathlon bronze medallist Vitaly Zhuk and former European champion Andrei Krauchanka who is on the comeback trail from injury along while the standout name on the Spanish team is reigning European indoor heptathlon champion Jorge Urena.
