2015

Highlights

The 2015 edition of the 'Meeting voor Mon' was an astonishing one, not only because of the strong Belgian record of Philip Milanov with 66m66 in the discus throw. But there were also a lot of other great performances as well as the first race with the three brothers Borlée in adjacent lanes. Due to the wind at the opposite side of the track the athletes couldn’t unfortunately find the right rhythm, but the finish was an stunning one. Kévin won the race in 45.79 in front of the Irishman Gregan, the Frenchman Anne and his brothers Jonathan and Dylan.

Not less than seven stadium records were broken during this meeting. Philip Milanov got the most attention by improving his own record of 66m43 from the 26th april with 23cm. In the pole vault, the record of 4m15 was even beated three times and was brought eventually to 4m40 thanks to Rianna Galiart from the Netherlands. In that event Chloé Henry tried to clear 4m45, which should have been an new Belgian record.

The other stadium records came on the track:

There was no stadium record in the 5.000m – Fernando Mamede got it a long time ago in 13.20.0 – but the Qatari Tarik Ahmed Alamri ran a strong 13.25.00. In the 110 hurdles only the thousands of a second could split the first two. The Canadian Sekou Kaba won from the Australian Nicolas Hough. They both got a time of 13.64. In the field events another Canadian, the young Timothy Hendry-Gallagher, was impressive with 19m35 in the shot put and de French girl Alexia Sedykh got her hammer at 66m42.

Highlights

Deze editie van de Meeting voor Mon zag Jonathan Borlée het nationaal record van de 300m met exact vier tienden verbeteren van 32.50 naar 32.10, tevens de zevende Europese prestatie aller tijden. Uiteraard verpulverde hij daarmee het stadionrecord. Er vielen nog andere stadionrecords bij de mannen:

Ryan Fontenot liep de 110m horden in 13.60

Robbert-Jan Janssen sprong 5,46m met de polsstok

Julien Kapek haalde 16,49m in het hinkstapspringen

Bij de vrouwen trok vooral Almensch Belete de aandacht. De Ethiopische, die vermoedelijk de Belgische nationaliteit zal verwerven, verbeterde zich op de 5.000m naar 15.03.69 en ook dat betekende een stadionrecords, naast de volgende:

Johanna Dubois met 23.56 op 200

Nancy Chepkwemboi liep naar 4.07.63 op de 1.500m

Naroa Aguirre overschreed 4,15m met de polsstok

Nora Aida gooide de speer 57,77m ver

Dat betekende in het totaal negen stadionrecords en daarvan waren er zelfs drie records van de Flanders Cup: die van Jonathan Borlée , Almensch Belete en Nora Aida.

Daarnaast mocht het duel tussen Amy Mbacke Thiam en Muriel Hurtis zeker gezien worden op de 400m en bevestigde LaTavia Thomas haar zeges in Gentbrugge en Ninove met winst op de 800m in de AtletiekArena: drie op drie! Op die afstand won de Ier Mark English (what's in a name?) bij de mannen met een nationaal juniorenrecord van 1.47.09.

Maar traditioneel lieten de Vlaamse atleten zich opmerken, zoals blijkt uit de gelukte bonussen, waaronder een resem voor atleten van minder dan 23 jaar. Bij DCLA blonk Tim Rummens met een indrukwekkende winst in de tweede reeks van de 400m horden in een PR van 50.60 (de vierde tijd in het totaal), net als Charlotte Debroux, die vijfde werd van de 800m in een PR van 2.03.67. Allebei verbeterden overjaarse en nog handgestopte clubrecords.
