Greek pole vaulter Emmanuel “Manolo” Karalis chatted with Digital Journal about his plans for 2019, and he opened up about his brand #FlyManoloFly.
Karalis’ plans for the season is to be 100 percent prepared for the upcoming outdoor season. “I had a serious injury on my leg and I was out of action for 11 months,” he explained.
Most recently, on February 2, Karalis cleared 5.75 meters in the men’s pole vault in an indoor track and field competition in Mondeville, France. “I felt good with that. This means that I am in good condition,” he said. “My dad was coaching me that day because my main coach, Andreas Tsonis, was with my teammate Nikoleta Kyriakopoulou.”
