The 7th International PSD Bank Meeting in Düsseldorf on Friday, the fifth of seven European Athletics Indoor Permit Meetings this year, is a truly international affair but the man who might get the biggest cheers is German shot put world champion David Storl.
Storl will be performing in front of a capacity crowd of 2000 spectators in the German city’s Arena Sportpark and will be hoping to improve on his European-leading mark of 21.24m set two weeks ago in Nordhausen.
However, he will face some familiar rivals including Poland’s 2008 Olympic Games gold medallist Tomasz Majewski, fresh from going over 21 metres for the first time this season with his win in Bydgoszcz on Wednesday, and the United States 2009 world champion Christian Cantwell.
Details of the 7th International PSD Bank Meeting in Düsseldorf can be found at the event website (in German) here.
