Gretta Taslakian who was disappointed last year by her 4th place in 200m Asian Games finals, and her 4th place this year in Constanta for the international meeting organized by the Romanian Federation, she finally took her revenge smashing her own Lebanese record on 400 meters by 1.32 second! To improve it from 55.31 to 53.99s in June 11! An amazing performance for this amazing athlete who also was second in her heat and 8th overall in the 66th prestigious Cezmi Or memorial in Istanbul! She jumped from the 55 seconds directly to the 53! Gretta is preparing for the World Championship in Korea and the Asian Championship in Japan.
I should mention that the beginning of Gretta with Track and Field was in middle distance running and cross county and she detained the Lebanese record in 400 from the Youth till the Senior category. Then she specialized in sprints: 100 and 200 meters.
