The international track and field season 2020 has finally been confirmed by the World Athletics. It will happen in an experimental form in the period of August – October. The Czech number one among the meetings, the 59th Ostrava Golden Spike will take place, as already known, on 8th September accompanied by the Diamond League and Continental Tour events.
„I am glad that the World Athletics published the athletic calendar for the 2020 and that Ostrava Golden Spike has its important place in the world calendar of one-day meetings accompanied by the Diamond League and Continental Tour Gold meetings. I am looking forward to the 8th September and I believe that the recent situation will improve as much so that we will be able to welcome also the foreign top athletes,” said the meeting director and the javelin star Jan Železný.
„The Ostrava Golden Spike definitely belongs to the calendar of the Czech and world athletics. So I am very pleased that we managed to get the date for it in such hard competition of other meetings. Thus, the first race is behind us and we may look forward to the traditional show of the best available athletics as we are already used in Ostrava,” said the owner of the organizing agency TK Plus Prostějov Miroslav Černošek.
The final events are to be confirmed in July. Starts of the best Czech and available foreign athletes are still actual. The next details like the form and the conditions of participation for the visitors as well as the timetable will be announced due to all valid ruled in the time of the planned meeting.
