On the second day of the 68th PZLA Polish Indoor Championships, the final decisions will be made. In the final of the 200-meter race, Martyna Kotwiła was the best.

68th PZLA Polish Indoor Championships: Gold in 200 meters for Martyna Kotwiła

During the competition in Toruń, such figures as Ewa Swoboda and Pia Skrzyszowska won gold medals. One of the main favorites was Martyna Kotwiła. As it turned out, she withstood the pressure and won. She started strongly from the beginning and led until the very end. She wasn't even bothered by the fact that she was running from the outside track, which is certainly a hindrance in terms of fighting for the best possible result. Kotwiła was able to overcome this inconvenience.

Additionally, Kotwiła had the dangerous Kryscina Cimanouska behind her back, which is worth noting. Ultimately, the first one came out on top with a time of 23.44 seconds. It must be admitted that Kotwiła has already run faster, but it was a solid 200-meter run in Toruń. Cimanouska with silver, and Magdalena Stefanowicz with bronze.

Marika Popowicz-Drapała was a sensational winner of the 400 meters

Before the 200-meter competition, the ladies ran twice the distance in the Toruń Arena. There was a big surprise, because for the first time in her career, Marika Popowicz-Drapała stood on the highest step of the podium in this competition.

The new Polish champion overtook, among others, the famous Justyna Święta-Ersetic. The Olympic champion from the mixed relay over this distance from the Tokyo Games (2021) returns to running after health problems.
