On the second day of the Swiss Indoor Championships in St. Gallen, the high jumper Salome Lang from Old Boys Basel set the highlight: the 22-year-old from Basel set a Swiss record at 1.94 m.
With this top performance, Lang once again provided proof of her strong constitution. In all of her four competitions in front of the indoor SM, she had always jumped at least 1.90 m high and also made a convincing appearance in St. Gallen. In the third attempt she mastered 1.94 m and not only secured her third indoor title, but also improved her Swiss record, which she set in Karlsruhe at the end of January, by one centimeter. At 1.96 m, the limit for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Lang narrowly failed.
The national record holder Selina Büchel (KTV Bütschwil) won the eagerly awaited 800 m final in 2: 06.84 minutes ahead of Delia Sclabas (Gerbersport) and Lore Hoffmann (ATHLE.ch). These three runners all figure in the top 10 of the European seasonal best list, which shows their high level of performance.
U23 European champion Jason Joseph (LC Therwil) over 60 m hurdles in a very good 7.66 seconds. In the pole vault, Angelica Moser (LC Zurich), who finished fourth in the European Indoor Championships, posted a season best of 4.50 m in Switzerland and in the triple jump Carlos Kouassi (CA Genève) achieved the fourth longest jump of a Swiss ever at 15.76 m.
