Greece’s Piyi Devetzi competing at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia on the weekend, where she settled for the silver medal in the women’s triple jump after leading the final most of the way.

After two unsuccessful attempts at 2.30 and knowing that if it goes through the bar would conquer the bronze medal, has placed flight and sent heaven all Cypriots friends of the track. Kyriacos Ioannou had the same performance in the same efforts with American Manson and thus shared the bronze medal. The first two positions were won by Russia’s Giaroslav Rimpakof and Sweden’s Stefan Holm.
