Nafie Thiam after European title and world record: “I feel I can do much better” | EC athletics

Nafeh Thiam (28) was again the best. For the third time in her career, she won the European title in the pentathlon, this time with a world record.

“I felt good,” says Nafie Thiam of her golden day. “I haven’t really practiced my jumps yet, but they’ve gone really well.”

Thiam came to Istanbul to test himself. A test with a world record in the hall (5055 points) is the icing on the cake.

She replies, “I feel like I can do a lot better.” “This gives me a lot of confidence for next summer and for the coming seasons.”

When did Thiam think of the world record? The world champion answers: “During the high jump, but only after hitting the ball.”

The level of the pentathlon at the European Championships was high. This is preparing for the heptathlon at the World Cup in Budapest.

“Yes, it will be exciting,” Thiam informs, “but the Olympics next year remain my main goal.”

“We’ll see. We’ll take it one by one.”

Nor-Vedets confirmed. Olympian No. 4 and current indoor world champion leaves Istanbul with a bronze medal.

“I’m very happy about that,” the 26-year-old replies. “You completed a very strong pentathlon. Nothing exceptional, but every number is of a high standard. We can build on that.”

Polish heptathlete Solek settled between Thiam and Wydets. I tried to run the 800m, but the virus I had recently was still in my body.

“On top of that, things went smoothly,” says Vedts, who is now focusing on the World Cup in Budapest. “I want to get better there again. On every song,” she laughs.
