Austria's team line-up for Munich
With a total of nine athletes who comply with the standards the European Championships team of Austria, a small nation in terms of track & field athletics, has been named at this early stage of the season in preparation for the continental finals to be held in Munich from 6 to 11 August.
Michael Buchleitner (marathon), Gregor Högler (javelin), Martin Pröll (hurdles), Doris Auer (pole vault), Valentina Fedjuschina (shot put) and Susanne Pumper (10 000 m) are further contestants who have already booked their ticket to the European Championships in Munich.
At the indoor European Championships held in their home country in spring, Austria finally took part with a team of 35 athletes. The team for Munich will probably be somewhat smaller. Out of the small group of the seven World Championships contestants at Edmonton the decathlete, Klaus Ambrosch, must still prove his ability. He will have his chance on 1 and 2 June when the standards for the European Championships are set in Götzis.
