In about a month, the Olympic Games will open in Tokyo and tonight (Saturday), Hannah Knyazeva Minenko received the good news she was expecting- Israel’s triple jumper, who is currently competing in the Intercontinental Cup in Madrid, jumped a distance of 14-36 meters, thus setting the criteria that would buy her participation in the Olympics-

Already in her second jump in Madrid, Minenko recorded a distance of 14-24 meters- The long-awaited moment came in the third jump, which was, as mentioned, a distance of 14-36, when the criterion was 14-32- Israel’s senior jumper will be at the Olympics for the third time, after participating in Rio 2016 and even managed to represent Ukraine in London 2012-

Minenko, who suffered a not-so-simple injury, has been under a lot of tension lately and in the formation of the Olympic Committee last Tuesday she seemed very alert and focused on the goal she was facing- At the Israeli Championships last week, she disqualified three times and settled for a distance of 14-04 meters, but in Madrid she managed to meet her task and be part of the Israeli delegation-
