The excitement of the fans returned to the POSiR Golęcin stadium. In front of an audience that was 25 percent full, the athletes who had already secured the Olympic minimums and those who were yet to fight for them took off. The biggest surprise was Ethan Cormon of France beating Renaud Lavillenie, Piotr Lisek and Harry Coppel of Great Britain in the pole vault.
The other surprise was the victory of the excellent junior Kornelia Lesiewicz in the heavily contested women's 400m run.
The hammer throw competition in the men's category was won by Wojciech Nowicki, and in the women's category, leading in this year's European lists - Malwina Kopron.
Good results fell in the ladies' triple jump and high jump competitions. In the former, only five centimeters were missing to improve the stadium record. The result of the winner Ottavia Cestonaro was this year's best result of this athlete. In the high jump the victory belonged to Kamila Lycinko, who in her first attempt overcame the bar suspended at a height of 1.90.
Relay races of amateur running teams are becoming a tradition of the Poznań meetings. Runners competing in half-marathons and marathons had a chance to test themselves in the stadium for the second time. A novelty, however, was the participation of para-athletes in the 100m run and the shot put competition.
