New regional record holder in the 200m indoors since January 15, Yanis Ammour confirmed his very good start to the season this Thursday, winning the title of French university champion in the 60m at Miramas, with a time of 6”78. Even if his start to competition was a bit complicated.

“I had a problem with my serial start block, and I had to resort on my own. But hey it’s over (6’’87) , that’s the main thing, ”explains the Ducist, who then managed his final perfectly. “I had already been vice-champion of France, so it’s nice to win the title”, appreciated Yanis Ammour.

“In the final, the start wasn’t perfect, but then I managed to come back well to take first place. I’ve been consistent below 6”80 in recent weeks, and I tell myself that if I manage to combine a good start and a good push phase, I can come and tickle the Burgundy-Franche-Comté record. (6”73, held since March 1974 by Dominique Chauvelot) “Extends the Dijonnais who will logically compete in the indoor elite French championships, over 60 m and 200 m.

For the first time this year, a university long throw championship was organized near Miramas, in Salon-de-Provence. And the Duciste Apolline Belleville signed a very good performance there, winning the silver medal in the disc with a throw of 44.98 m.

“We are in a phase of heavy work in bodybuilding, and I did not expect such a good throw, so soon”, savors the young woman, who is now “with the big ones (1re senior year) “. If her record dated from 2020 (44.18 m), she greatly improved it on Thursday, leaving behind the right wrist injury which had deprived her of national meetings last summer.
