Antigoni Drisbioti is in Australia as of today… The “golden” girl of Greek race walking has travelled without problems to Australia.
The experienced and top athlete won “bronze” a few months ago at the World Championships in Budapest in the 20 km race walk.
As in 2022, this year she will begin her training preparation in Australia. Guided by last year experience, she knows very well what she will encounter both at the Melbourne training ground and at the Canberra camps during her stay here and expects, as she did last year, to get the best possible results.
Drisbioti will reside until March 30 in Australia. During this time, she will train in the group of her coach Brent Vallance along with the “silver” champions at the World Championships in Budapest Gemina Montag and at the same time she will have the opportunity to participate in competitions.
Drisbioti has 20km as her first goal of the year at the European Championships in Rome. An event that will take place on June 7 and in which the athlete will be called upon to give her best, two years after her victory in Munich.
Finally, the Paris Olympic Games are the great goal of the Greek woman. The athlete has been preparing for next year for three weeks now.
