In the evening of February 4th, Artis set off to our beloved Estonia, where in Tartu manēža for the 8th time occured the traditional Martin Kutmani competition in athletics. In a very tough competition with ahletes from Estonia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Byelorussia, Artis got 6th placewith a new PB and club record in 600m - 1:24,93! Need to menntion, that the result of the winner was 1:18,97! After this competition, Artis' result indoors is third best in U23 age group and 4th best amongst mens' rating. Slowly approaching is Latvian championship indoors. There the most desired goal will be breaking the 2 minute mark in 800m. There is some time left to train. It will be fun!

The crazy month of February is here! For others maybe it is not that crazy, but for Ašais it definitely is. It is the time of Latvian championships! Isn't it amazing that the month of championships has started with something this amazing?!? In the elderly Rīgas manege occured the U14 Latvian championship. We are truly happy, that our young lady Stella Paltiņa in her first Latvian championship ever stepped on the country's most important athletics pedestal, getting 3rd place with a new PB overall! Also Stella was only 0,16 seconds behind 2nd place! furthermore, she was a year younger than her competitors!!! Unfortunately, psychology got the best of our second U14 athlete Roberts Cercins. Psychology got him ruthlessly...Experience. Next on the queens' stage will set off U18 age groups' runners Roberts Glazers and Renāte Beļājeva! Photos - here!
