The European Athletics Championship are on the schedule for next month as more than 4500 athletes from 52 countries are gunning for glory. This major sports event will bring a number of contests that will attract the fans from all over Europe and the world. One exciting event that will bring a few an experienced athletes together is the shot put contest. One notable name that will take part in this competition is Tomaz Stanek. The Chezch athlete is one of the high profile participants on the list and the expectations are that he will be one of the favourites to win a medal at the European Athletics Championship.

The Czech athlete will be stepping up his preparations for the contest in Berlin as he aims to put some recent disappointments. One of that cam last year as Stanek missed out on a medal by five centimetres at the IAAF World Championships in London. This was a real disappointment for Stanek as he had his hopes high before that tournament. However, he was able to bounce back this year as he finished 3rd at the World Indoor Championship in Birmingham with a score of 21.44. The European Athletics Championship will be a great opportunity for him to reach the top.

Nevertheless, Stanek will face swift competition from Konrad Bukowiecki. The Polish athlete is one of the main contenders for the gold at the European Athletics Championship in Berlin. It will be interesting to see this encounter will go as the Bukowiecki was not able to build upon his 2nd place at the Taipei tournament. His appearance at the World Indoor Championship in Birmingham was somewhat solid, but his score of 20.99 was only good enough for the 8th place. It seems that the shot put contest at the European Athletics Championship will also be his opportunity to bounce back as he will aim to improve and to challenge for a medal. He will head into this competition as he was able to beat Stanek at the 2017 European Athletics Indoor Championships to claim the gold medal.

The third contender that will aim for the gold is David Storl. The German athlete has some experience in the shot puns against Stanek and Bukowiecki. He was able to finish 3rd during the 2017 European Athletics Indoor Championships just behind Bukowiecki and Stanek. His aim will be to improve against his rivals and being in front of his own fans can have a galvanizing effect on his confidence.

On a final note, we can conclude the shot put contest will bring a high level of competitiveness as the old rivals are bracing for another encounter with each one having the gold medal as the ultimate target.
