For some athletes, the ISTAF INDOOR is the dress rehearsal for the eagerly awaited World Athletics Indoor Championships Glasgow 2024 (March 1 to 3, 2024), but for many top athletes, the start in Berlin is the last stop of their indoor season before the intensive preparation for the “super summer” begins with the European Championships in Rome and the Olympic Games in Paris. It is also the “indoor final” for world-class long jumper Malaika Mihambo, who won the German Indoor Championships last weekend with 6.93 meters. “I’m getting better and better at the competitions. Now it’s time to start the preparations for this summer with another positive experience,” says Malaika Mihambo. The Olympic Champion can definitely rely on the support of the more than 12,000 fans expected tomorrow. “The ISTAF INDOOR can’t be compared to any other meeting, the atmosphere is unique. The atmosphere is like a tailwind.”
