Latvia’s Laura Ikauniece-Admidia who broke her national record as she won the heptathlon with 6470, had the best score in the heptathlon from all leagues this weekend.

It was a weekend to remember for Latvia’s Laura Ikauniece-Admidia who broke her national record at the time to win the heptathlon with 6470 points at the 2015 European Combined Events Team Championships Second League in Inowroclaw, the best  heptathlon score from all leagues. Greece’s Sofia Ifantidou took second place with 5945 and Lecabela Quaresma, of Portugal, was third with a personal best of 5792.

Finland won the European Combined Events Team Championships Second League with 36,948 points, and joining them in promotion to next year's First League was Portugal with 36,311. Latvia with 36,296 and Greece 35,547 completed the team standings as these four teams took part in the event.

Ikauniece-Admidia will once more likely be the one to watch in Monzon in 2017, where she could aim for yet another national record.

Last year Finland performed outstandingly as Joli Koivu produced a personal best performance to win the decathlon with 7462 points from teammate Tero Ojala (7726) and Portugal’s Samuel Remedios (7184).

Koivu was second overall in the 110m hurdles in 14.76, discus with 41.15m and pole vault with a personal best of 4.80m, before throwing his best ever javelin to win the event with 64.35m and then was 10th in the 1500m in 5:02.09.
