As the Czech Republic opens up after the COVID-19 pandemic, the Czech athletic association is looking to put on a few local athletic meetings.
Czech season to start on June 1
PRAGUE (CZE): The Czech athletics season is due to recommence on 1 June after the government has allowed gatherings of a maximum of 50 people from 25 May. The Czech Athletic Federation is preparing a series of six elite “micro-meetings” which will start the competitive season with the first event to take place in Kladno on 1 June. Barbora Spotakova, Pavel Maslak and Tomas Stanek will all be competing and there will be events held around the country to mark the resumption of the Czech athletics season. “To arrange competitions for elite athletes is not the only aim of the initiative. We want to engage athletes of all age categories and performance levels, to encourage organisers across the country to return to their stadiums, albeit with limited conditions so far. That’s why we are jumping in together on 1 June at one hundred and more athletics stadiums under the slogan ‘Back on the Track’. We are calling on the regions as well as clubs to get involved in the initiative,” said President of the Czech Athletic Federation and EA Vice-President Libor Varhanik.
Czech Athletics starts series of local competitions already on June 1 – the aim is to have something at 100 stadiums through the country. https://t.co/zxkEzLfHmt
