Pavel Fajdek Has Set His Sights For Glory at the European Athletics Championship

The European Athletics Championship are back this year as more than 4500 athletes will take part in various sports contests in Berlin. On that note, it is important to emphasize that the ultimate goal for many of them is to reach the top and win a medal. One notable competition that will bring a high level of excitement is the hammer throw contest. And while many athletes will aim to reach the top, the hammer champion Pawel Fajdek is stepping up his preparations for the hammer contest at the European Athletics Championship.

The Polish athlete has been one of the most consistent athletes and his success speaks for that. He is the first man to win three successive world championship titles. Moreover, the 28-year-old, will head into the hammer contest at the Olympic Stadium as the main favourite to defend his title. This will be the third European Athletics Championship for Fajdek. His first appearance was in Zurich in 2014 where he finished on the 2nd spot where his best record was 82.05 meters. However, the Polish athlete was determined to improve as he was able to win the hammer contest at the European Athletic Championship in Amsterdam in 2016. He also improved his record as his throw was 80.93 meters.

It will be interesting to see if he will be able to maintain the top form in Berlin as he set the standard so high that many of the other competing athletes are struggling to cope with.

After the Olympic disappointment at the tournament in Rio in 2016, the European Gold medalist was able to bounce back as he won the World Championship in London in 2017 with a solid record of 79.86 meters. However that score came short of his personal record which currently stands at 83.93 meters.

Based on the expectations of the pundits and the fans. Fajdek will be the hot favourite to win the competition in Berlin. Nevertheless, it will not be easy as the Polish athlete will face some swift competition at the European Athletics Championship in Berlin this year. One notable contender that has set his sights for the top is Marcel Lomnicky. The Slovakian athlete was able to challenge Fajdek at the European Throwing Cup in Leiria. Lomnicky was able to produce three throws over 75 metres in the last three rounds, finishing second to Fajdek with a notable score of 75.97m. And although he was not able to win, the Slovakian upcoming star was able to rise above the expectations as he finished above the second-ranked Turkish thrower Ozkan Baltaci who won the bronze medal with a score of 75.71m.

All in all, the hammer contest will bring some top class athletes that will aim to win the gold medal. And although Fajdek may be the favourite to win in Berlin, athletes such as Lomnicky have the potential to challenge Fajdek for the gold medal.
