Everything is ready for the start of the athletic competitions

Three days before the start of the athletic competitions everything is ready to go in the Olympic Sport Park. The track achieved a Class1 qualification from the IAAF, the International Association of Athletics Federations this week.

 „At the present this is the only athletic track in Hungary, which has this classification. There are only about 120 same classified establishments” – said Barbara Petráhn, Competition Director, former two times Olympian sprinter, who also told about the preparations.

„There is only the arrangement of the track in progress, this will be completed by a “Timing and Scoring” team made up of Czech professionals, they are going set the displays and finish the cable works. They are real professional is this kind of work, they already have done the same tasks at a vast amount of big competitions. We will fit up the offices with the volunteers, print the necessary blanks, check the entries, even plant flowers it is necessary; these things are just tiny touch ups. The very last finishing touch will be cutting the grass one more time on the day of the Opening Ceremony.”


The Hungarian Athletic National Team had a training camp last week in the Olympic Sport Park, according to their experiences a few little changes were also made, so everything can be perfect from the competitor’s perspective. The national teams of the participant countries can take the tracks into possession on the 23th, this will be the first official practice date.

„There will be a chance to practice with the official race Starter (judge), since the athletes can only practice the starts this way, so as few false starts may happen as possible. The entry lists are final, the number of the participants is almost like we expected; there will be 562 athletes at the start. The most popular competition event is the classical woman 100 meter flat race, there will be thirty participants. The women have the best of the running amongst the skill competitions too. 25 participants are in the long jump. All together we can say that there are more female participants typically in every sport event than male participants. To the Men 2000 metres hurdles there are 8 entries, this will be a final race” – said Barbara Petráhn.
