Shubenkov is Gunning for Gold at the European Athletics Championship

The European Athletics Championship will be back on the sports agenda this year as more than 52 nations will take part in this unique tournament. The continental event will bring more than 4500 athletes that will take part in various contests with the ultimate goal to win the gold. One notable competition that many athletes have set their sights on is the 110m Hurdles contest. On that note, it is important to emphasize that there are a few hot picks that are considered as the main favourites to win this race.

One notable athlete that will take part in this unique contest is Sergey Shubenkov. The Russian track and field runner will be one of the main contenders for the gold medal as he is hitting a peak form heading into the European Championships in Berlin. He was able to improve his personal record for 110 meters with hurdles during the contest in Szekesfehervar. His result was very solid, yet Sergey Shubenkov was only able to get within 0.01 of Colin Jackson's long-standing European record at this contest.

Now his record stands at 12.92 with the possibility for further improvement during the European Championship in Berlin this year. By the numbers, it seems that he is on the up and more is expected from the Russian athlete at the European tournament in Berlin.

Shubekov will also head into the European Athletics Championship on the wings of his previous successes as he has won several medals in the past. The Russian athlete is the 2015 World Champion. Moreover, the 27 years runner is also a two-time European Champion (2014, 2012) and he also has a 2013 World bronze medalist in men's 110 m hurdles. The general expectation is that he will be one of the hot favourites to win the 110 m hurdles race in Berlin.

However, Shubekov will face a swift competition from Balazs Baji. The Hungarian athlete has a vast experience under his belt. One of his notable results is the 7th place at the 110 metres hurdles contest as part of the 2008 World Junior Championships and a silver medal from the 2011 European U23 Championships which also resulted with a new Hungarian U23 record. Moreover, his senior success is also notable as he has won the silver medal at the 2016 European Championships and the bronze medal at the 2017 World Championships. The expectation is that Baji has the potential to get into the mix for medals and he can provide a serious competition for Shubenkov.

On a final note, the 110 meters with hurdles contest will bring a high level of excitement and competitiveness. The participation of world-class athletes such as Shubenkov and Baji will have a galvanizing effect on the quality of the event and the tournament in general.
