The 26-year-old flew more than 5.86 meters on his first attempt, which was five centimeters higher than on January 31 in Dusseldorf, but on his third attempt he flew to greater altitudes: 5.96 meters. This is six inches higher than his old pre-tournament record. His third attempt, over 6.01 meters, was unsuccessful, but was too close.
He is still in third place in the European standings, behind Dublin and Lavelini (6.10 and 6.02 m).
In exactly a week’s time, Flun will compete in the European Indoor Championships in Toru, Poland, where he is still third this season with a 5.96m ranking and can hope to reach the podium.
Flon indicated right after the match that he was at his best. “The introductory period here is very good. I really think I will soon be able to jump six meters for the first time in my life. The three attempts over 6.01 meters here tonight were not bad. If you jump six meters, you will definitely get a medal in Torun.”
Flun’s coach Christian Tamminga was also happy: “I’ve always told him he can do it. You just have to know how.”
