Poland doubled its victory tally to ten on the final day of competition to clinch the team title at the European Athletics Team Championships Super League before an enthusiastic home crowd in Bydgoszcz on Sunday (11).
Putting their versatility on display across the programme, Poland tallied 345 points to handily unseat defending champion Germany, who scored 317.5. In a tight team battle, France was just 1.5 points behind with 316.5, just half a point in front of Italy.
Piotr Lisek got the day underway on the infield with a 5.81m clearance to win the pole vault, 10 centimetres better than Swede Melkar Svard Jacobsson and world record holder Renaud Lavillenie. Lisek, who improved to 6.02m in Monaco last month, topped out with three misses at 6.03m.
