Emmanuel Karalis has won his first-ever bronze medal in pole vault at the World Indoor Athletics Championships.

The Greek long jumper was sensational on the day, breaking this year’s record twice and won with a successful jump at 5.85- metres with the first attempt.

This was Emmanuel’s second appearance at the World Indoor Championships after finishing 5th in Birmingham in 2018.

This was Greece’s second medal at this year’s event and 15th overall at the World Indoors, following Miltos Tentoglou’s gold in the high jump on Saturday.
