Golden Gala: the queen is…Blanka Vlasic!

Golden Gala: the queen is…Blanka Vlasic!

Blanka Vlasic will compete on the IAAF Diamond League Meeting in Rome on Thursday.

She competed seven times in Rome and celebrated her five wins with her dances moving her hips. She also collected a second place behind an inspired Antonietta Di Martino and a third place.

These are the results achieved by Blanka Vlasic at the Golden Gala. The criteria are the same used for the men’s title. Three points for the winner, two for the second placer, one for the third placer and a bonus of six points for the world record.  Blanka Vlasic scored a total of 18 points which crown the very tall Croatian jumper, who is nicknamed the Flamingo, as the queen of the Rome meeting where she set the meeting record with 2.03m, which she holds together with South African Hestrie Cloete, Russian Yelena Slesarenko and US Chaunte Lowe.
