Angelika CICHOCKA - Poland - 2016 European 1500 metres champion.

The photograph of the women's 1,500 metres final could have been taken moments after the start.

In fact the filed is on their fourth lap of a very, very slow race !


Champion Angelika Cichocka is on the extreme left of the photo, waiting for her moment to accelerate,

as indeed were most of the runners. So slow was her winning time that every runner in the two qualifying

heats (21 women - slowest 4:29.47) ran faster than her winning time in the final  (4.33.00).

 

In Stockholm earlier in the year Cichocka ran a 4:03.25 for the distance (indoors).
