Greece has been in the spotlight around the world this month when it comes to sporting achievements.

Greek pole vault champion, Katerina Stefanidi took out first place at the UCS Spirit National Pole Vault Summit in Nevada on Friday.

The 28-year-old gold medallist came first with 4.74 meters, followed by Americans Katie Nageotte in second place, and Lexi Jacobus in third.

Based in the US, Stefanidi, who is currently the World Outdoor, European Outdoor, European Indoor, and Diamond League champion, is set to compete in the 2019 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow, Scotland in March.

Back in Europe, on Saturday in the south of France, fellow Greek pole vaulter Emmanuel Karalis as well as long jumper Miltos Tentoglou both managed to win gold at the U-23 Indoor Mediterranean Championships.

Nineteen-year-old Karalis came out on top with a jump at 5.55 meters, managing to secure his participation representing Greece in the U-23 European Championships in Sweden in July.
