If you are planning to move or whether you are looking for an excuse to travel to the Czech Republic this can be the perfect occasion. The European Athletics Indoor Championship, a major international athletics event, returns to the Czech Republic after 37 years! The last time it was held here, was in 1978 in the Strahov stadium.
The championship will take place from March 5 to 8 in the O2 Arena and will be the highlight of the athletics season. Athletes from 50 countries in Europe will meet to try to win a championship of the old continent. For Czech athletes, this is an opportunity to appear in front of their audience and their fans. It is also an incredible opportunity to increase the awareness for Prague and Czech Republic with the celebration of an European sport event which will bring the most well-known European Athletes from each country.
The Czech javelin thrower, Barbora Špotáková born 30 June 1981, will participate in this important appointment. In 2007, she won the gold medal at the World Championships in Osaka. At the end of the 2008 season, she won the World Athletics Final in Stuttgart. And she also won the gold medal at the Beijing Summer Olympics in 2008.
“There is a huge fan interest that makes us very glad. There are still a couple of tickets left for the classic Friday program and Saturday morning session,” said Tomáš Janků, executive director of the European indoors.
