Newsarchiv 10,000m appearance heads impressive programme - Ostrava Preview

Resting near the borders with Poland and Slovakia, the Czech city of Ostrava

is an eastern European crossroads, a setting suited perfectly for a meeting in

which many athletes’ roads will cross for the first time this season at

tomorrows IAAF Super Grand Prix meeting (8 June).

Indeed, with numerous notable seasonal debuts, the road to Athens begins in

earnest on Tuesday as the athletics world converges at the Golden Spike Super

Grand Prix. With a one million euro budget and a prize pot of more than 400,000

euros, not a single event is bereft of talent and depth, producing the finest

assembly of talent thus far this season.
