A somersault, a handstand, a cartwheel and five pushups. That is the means by which Lunani the giraffe, chief of the World Athletics Relays Silesia21 mascot transfer, introduced herself at a question and answer session today to stamp the occasion's 100 days to go milestone. Lunani obviously, owes her finesse to one incredible competitor, Piotr Lisek, who was wearing the mascot's outfit. For clear reasons, the star shaft vaulter won't contend at the Relays, yet he has been named an envoy of the occasion.
"It's about the force of the group, and there's only one single Polish group," said Lisek, the public record holder with 6.02m and the 2019 World Championships bronze medallist. "It will be the runners contending in Chorzów on the main few days of May, yet we all field eventers will keep our fingers crossed for our partners from the Polish public group. It is, all things considered, their possibility of acquiring Olympic capability."
More help will come from different mascots: Maji the cheetah, Sprinter the ostrich and Julian the lemur. Every one of the four are occupants of the Silesian Zoo which remains close to Silesian Stadium, the scene for the gathering, and can be visited day by day where their homes are named with data on the mascot and the opposition. The World Athletics Relays Silesia21 has been supporting each of the four creatures. Maji, Sprinter and Julian, as Lunani, will likewise be the models for the mascot ensembles, pointed toward engaging the members in the opposition.
With such a great amount in question, in any case, the opposition will be more than simple amusement. The World Athletics Relays Silesia21 gives one of the last chances for Olympic capability, just as the first to procure passes to the World Athletics Championships Oregon 22. The gathering is consequently vital to public hand-off groups from around the globe, including those from the host country. The Polish ladies' and blended 4x400m crews have just procured their Olympic passages, however both Polish 4x100m groups and the men's 4x400m are as yet in the battle for capability.
