Pole Vault:

To provide exciting high-class competitions, the organizers only invite world-class athletes to the event. At Schaan, recently crowned new Olympic pole vault Champion, Thiago Braz Da Silva (BRA), will meet Rio Olympians Konstadinos Filippidis (GRE) and Robert Renner (SLO), as well as U18 World Record Holder, Emmanouli Karalis (GRE). Five of the participating female pole vaulters competed at the Rio Games, including U23 European Champion, Holly Bradshaw (GBR), 2014 Indoor Vice World Champion, Jirina Ptacnikova (CZE), and Minna Nikkanen (FIN).


There’s a high-carat field in long-jump, too: Olympians Henry Frayne (AUS), Radek Juska (CZE), and Emiliano Lasa (URU) meet 2013 Vice World Champion, Ignisious Gaisah (NED). At the women’s, four out of five athletes who recently competed for Olympic medals in Rio will fight for the prize-money: current No. 5 of the world ranking, Maryna Behk (UKR), 2016 Vice European Champion, Jazmin Sawyers (GBR), Alina Rotaru (ROM) and Anna Lunyova (UKR).
