Mutaz Barshim - Gyulai Memorial - 2018

In the 2nd of july 2018, in Hungary - Székesfehérvár took place the most famous athletic competition in Hungary called Gyulai Mamorial. The most remarkable moment was probably on the second day. The Hungarian athlete fans almost witnessed a new world record when Mutaz Barshim the highjumper from Quatar, almost managed to pass the 246cm height. There were also several famous athelets, performing very well like: Dr. Baji Balázs hungarian hurdler, Donald Thomas, Christian Taylor - triple jumper and so on.
