The champion of Europe in run on 800 metres Natalia Prischepa, after winning the tournament in Berlin in 2018, has established a unique achievement.
Ukrainian Prischepa was the current European champion after winning the event in Amsterdam in 2016. At the European Championships in 2018 in Berlin, she defended his title of European champion. Prischepa was the first who managed to achieve it.
I should add that no one was able to defend the European title and twice winning the gold medals of the European championship was only Vera Nikolic of Yugoslavia in 1966 and 1971.
