The Golden Spike is one of the most celebrated events in Europe. It is on my list of must sees, and I hope to be there in 2021. The Golden Spike builds amazing events with the top stars, and the fans have made it a most popular event.

She also won the Euoropean Indoor WC in Prague 2015 and Glasgow 2019. Mariya also won the silver at the European Championships Outdoors in Zurich 2014 and gold at the the European Championships Outdoors in Berlin 2018.

Suffice to say, Mariya Lasitskene has won most things under the global champs sun since 2014 (she was 11th in U23 the European Championships Outdoors in 2015, and 2nd in the 2014 European Championships Outdoors.

But, in 2020, she can not compete, because she is a citizen of Russia, and Russia is not on the World Athletics' gift list, at this time. Well, unless $6.31 million shows up in Monaco by August 15, 2020, courtesy of the Russian Athletic Federation.

I have to admit. The two meets I want to visit and experience are the Golden Spike in Ostrava and the Gyulai Memorial. I watched the Gyulain on Swiss TV in 2017 when I was in Lausanne. It was excellent!

And Tianna Bartoletta, the Olympic LJ and 4x100m gold medalist, told me that she loves the Gyulia: " I love that meet in Hungary. I love to walk to the stadium prior to the meet, and also, I sometimes walk back to the hotel with the fans!

As my family is Hungarian, I hope to get a seat at the Gyulai someday....
