European Championship 2022: the final list of Serbian athletes
This year in August (11.08. -21.08) the European Championship is held in Munich. The event is designed as a counterpart to the Olympic Games and is a set of European championships in different disciplines that are held within the same event, instead of separately. This year, the event is special for both the German and the Serbian public. For the Germans, the event is special on a symbolic level: the European Championships are taking place in Munich, on the 50th anniversary of the Olympic Games. Accordingly, the largest number of events will take place in the Munich Olympic Arena.
For Serbia, i.e. the Serbian public, the pleasure is all of a sporting nature. Namely, in the 12 disciplines in which the best European athletes will compete, Serbia has as many as 14 representatives. Until recently, that number was 11, but three more Serbian athletes received an invitation at the last minute. Armin Sinančević and Asmir Kolašinac (shot put), Milana Tirnanić (100 meters), Lazar Anić and Strahinja Jovančević (long jump), Boško Kijanović (400m), Dragana Tomašević (discus), Elzan Babić (1500m), Luka Trgovčević (110m hurdles), Ivana Vuleta, Milica Gardašević (long jump), Adrijana Vilagoš (javelin throw), Angelina Topić (high jump), Anja Lukić (100m hurdles).
Already on the first day, in the afternoon session, Sinančević and Kolašinac will have the opportunity to adorn themselves with a medal in case they pass the morning qualifications. Assuming that all Serbian athletes pass the qualifications, Anić and Jovančević will have the finals on the second day, just like Tomašević. Kijanović and Trgovčević will run their final races on the third day of the tournament. On the fourth day, Vuleta and Gardašević will try to the European podium with their jumps. On the fifth day, Serbian athletes will not participate in the finals but, currently the most popular face of Serbian athletics, Angelina Topić, will play in the qualifiers. On the sixth day, Vilagoš will throw the javelin in the final, and on the seventh day, Topić and Lukić will try to bring Serbia a medal.
We wish luck to all Serbian athletes. We will inform you about their placements.
