    Wind Advantage

Our 8-lane athletics track with double electronic timing is ready for this. Let’s hope the wind is in our favor.

The heat assignment will be based on performance, with the first round determined by the declared performance and the second round (final) based on the times recorded in the heats.

    Equipment Inspection

    Personal throwing equipment (shot puts) can be continuously submitted at the equipment storage (located at the back of the indoor facility) starting from 2:00 PM until no later than 1 hour before the start of the event.
