Two world leading marks were among a number of fine performances at the ISTAF INDOOR in Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena on Friday evening. Christina Clemons of the US won the 60 m hurdles in 7.83 seconds while Malaika Mihambo took the long jump with 6.77 m. For Mihambo it was her third victory in a row at Berlin’s ISTAF INDOOR. And actually there was a hat-trick of world leading performances in this venue for Germany’s sports person of the year. The meeting was allowed to go ahead with strict hygiene registrations in place. There were no spectators allowed in the arena.
