Street Athletics programme draws thousands to Fountain Square over two days of action

Germany's world champion pole-vaulter Raphael Holzdeppe dropped in on Baku on Wednesday 24 June to star in the Street Athletics event that took over Fountain Square for two days during the European Games. He might have only arrived the day before, but Holzdeppe wasted no time getting into the groove. Easing over the early jumps, it may have taken three attempts to clear 5.82m, but he then went on to clear 5.92m, a centimetre higher than his previous personal best.
