Radek Juska is Gunning for Glory at the Long Jump Contest in Berlin

The European Athletics Championship are on the schedule for next month as more than 4500 athletes from 52 countries are steeping their preparations. This major sports tournament will bring a number of competition through which many of the athletes will aim to win medals. One exciting event that will bring a few champions face to face is the Long Jump contest. One notable athlete that will take part in this contest is Radek Juska. The Chezch athlete is one of the high profile names on the list and the expectations are that he will play a significant role in this competition.

The 25 years old athlete will head into the European Championship on the wings of his previous success. Juska took part at the previous European tournament in Amsterdam in 2016 where he was short of winning a medal as he finished 4th with a record of 7.93 meters. Yet, he was not able to galvanize on that as his participation at the Rio Olympics was not something to celebrate. He finished 13th with a record of 7.84 meters. And although this result was an improvement from the tournament in Amsterdam, he was short of competing with other athletes from around the world.

Based on the expectations from pundits and experts alike, Juska will be one of the main contenders at the Long Jump competition. This is based on the fact that his form is on the constant rise in the last couple of seasons. To be more specific, he had a very solid result at the Taipei 2017 Universiade where he finished first with a notable score of 8.02 meters. He continued to improve at the World Indoor Championship in Birmingham last year where his long jump record was 7.99 meters. Unfortunately, that score was not enough for a medal as he finished on the 7th spot. However, the Chezch athlete is stepping up his preparations in Prague and the overall impression is that there is more to come from Juska. His recent results clearly show a steady progress and the long jump contest at the European Athletics is a great opportunity for him to break into the top of the cream and win a medal.

All in all, we can conclude that Juska is one of the upcoming athletes at this European tournament. Based on his current form and talent, the expectation is that his form will peak right before the long jump contest in Berlin. And although it may be to early for him to win the gold medal, Juska will surely be in the mix for wining the bronze.
