Germany were crowned overall champions at the European Athletics Team Championships Super League in Lille Metropole ahead of Poland and France

The final entries for the European Athletics Team Championships Super League in Bydgoszcz, Poland have been published and can be viewed here or under 'Related Documents.'

Germany won the overall title in Lille Metropole two years ago ahead of Poland and France and the reigning champions have named three champions from Berlin 2018 in their team: Malaika Mihambo (long jump), Gesa Felicitas Krause (3000m steeplechase) and Mateusz Przybylko (high jump). 

Krause was also part of the title-winning team in 2017 when she won her specialist event. In fact, Krause will be looking for her third successive individual win in the 3000m steeplechase having also prevailed in Cheboksary, Russia two years prior.

The German team also features Christina Schwanitz (shot put), Cindy Roleder (100m hurdles), Max Hess (triple jump), Kristin Gierisch (triple jump) and Claudine Vita (discus) who are all capable of challenging for maximum points next weekend. 

But the Poles will provide some redoubtable opposition on home soil and could even come away with their first ever title as a collective. 

The Polish team features five European champions from Berlin in Adam Kszczot (800m), Justyna Swiety-Ersetic (400m), Wojciech Nowicki (hammer), Michal Haratyk (shot put) and Paulina Guba (shot put) as well as reigning European indoor champions Ewa Swoboda (60m) and Marcin Lewandowski (1500m).

Maximum points are also anticipated from Piotr Lisek in the pole vault and from Sofia Ennaoui, who won the 3000m at the 2015 and 2017 European Team Championships, in the 1500m.

The French team finished third on home soil and the likes of Jimmy Vicaut (100m), Pascal Martinot-Lagarde (110m hurdles), Melina Robert-Michon (discus) and six-time winner in the pole vault Renaud Lavillenie will be instrumental in their push for a third successive podium finish.

Live streaming of the European Athletics Team Championships Super League and First League will be available on the European Athletics website.
