BOLZANO. The blue Katja Pattis took off the ticket for the final of the 3000 steeplechase at the European Under 20 Championships, which are taking place in Tallinn in Estonia.
The 19-year-old South Tyrolean qualifies for the final in 10: 32.21 minutes, with the personal best lowered by more than five seconds. At the finish line Pattis is seventh, gaining decisive positions in the second part of the test: her time trial is among those recovered to pass the round, and she also becomes the ninth Italian under 20 ever.
Thus the South Tyrolean enters the final of the 15 best hedges, scheduled for Saturday 17 July at 5.30 pm local time.
