Happy Valentine’s Day !

February 14, 2023 Happy Valentine’s Day  ! Every year, Valentine’s Day is celebrated with incredible zeal, excitement and love around the world. And why not! This day reminds us to cherish and celebrate the most beautiful emotion we experience: LOVE ❣️ Without wanting to spoil anything on this magnificent day, although too commercial, let’s face it, we cannot ignore the tragedies that the world is going through at the moment 🖤. Still. But it is by celebrating love, this marvelous and deep feeling, that we can all better live together, understand, share, laugh, admire, help, joke, support. It brings energy, happyness, success 🏆 and much more, if you see what I mean, dear Cupid, Eros, Juliette, Romeo, euhh  … whoever you are !! May this Valentine’s Day spread all around us the emotion of life and inspire only positive feelings. And

Sports volunteering party at the Cirque de Noël

Sports volunteering party at the Cirque de Noël Geneva, 1st December 2022 It is a wonderful initiative that the City of Geneva and “Geneva Bénévolat”, the Geneva volunteering platform (which we have been using for several years) to organize a first celebration of sports volunteering. It was therefore at the Pajazzo’s Cirque de Noël, on the plain of Plainpalais, that all the sports organizations of the canton were invited and met for a magical and wonderful evening, inaugurated by a speech full of motivation, enthusiasm and energy, beautiful words, recognition and, magnificent, beautiful projects from the Mayor of Geneva, Marie Barbey-Chappuis. It is also an opportunity for us, ATLETICAGENEVE, to thank the work that our volunteers do to ensure that our event is where it is. Everyone has contributed, for 34 years, to raising this meeting among the best in the

Seminar and workshops of Swiss Athletics 2022

We were present at the traditional Swiss Athletics seminar on November 19, 2022, in particular at the Communication and Ethics workshops. The latter was particularly interesting and very topical for us who were already present at the World Athletics seminar just 4 weeks ago (at the same time as Swiss Athletics). Delighted to (re)see our federation already very actively at work and with the desire to integrate these new standards emanating from Swiss Olympic related to ethics (including in all the processes of the federation itself) and to situations doping, cheating and sexual harassment and abuse. This will have, among other consequences, the modification of the statutes of Swiss Athletics. Our history, directly linked to that of the EAP circuit, shows to what extent we were pioneers, not to say visionaries, (more than 30 years!) in the fight against doping.

Nash Hotels & ATLETICAGENEVE strengthening their collaboration

For several years, the Nash Airport Hotel **** has welcomed ATLETICAGENEVE athletes. We can say that the growth of our event resembles that of the Nash. This four-star hotel has undergone spectacular renovations and development with the opening of two additional adjoining structures at the beginning of 2019: the Nash Suites Airport **** and the Nash Pratik ***. This was a good thing because that same year ATLETICAGENEVE received the qualification for the World Athletics Continental Tour / Bronze which further raised the qualitative requirements both for the organization and the infrastructures and for the reception capacities. Today the Nash Hotel is the hotel that offers one of the largest reception capacities in Geneva. The Nash Airport has 173 air-conditioned rooms and suites, the NASH Suites 130 apartments and suites and finally the Nash Pratik 41 rooms, which makes a

ATLETICAGENEVE 2022: THE BEST EDITION EVER

“This June 11, 2022 will have marked a further step forward in the development of the Geneva international meeting. We thus left bad luck behind us (mini tornado of 2019 forcing us to stop the meeting, our very promising, two hours before the end), then the cancellation due to the pandemic in 2020). Here we are again, ATLETICAGENEVE at the highest level! Emblematic of this new milestone: the extraordinary performance in the 100m: 9″98! Meeting record, EAP record, personal best for Charleston Cravont (USA). A hot time like this corresponds to 5th place in the world championships (Eugene), 6th in the Tokyo Olympics and such a performance would have meant the silver medal at the European championships! But this performance is not a unique feat. The entire meeting was very dense. 84,577 points ! Its place at the world level

Two weeks to go !

2 weeks to go ! ATLETICAGENÈVE is exactly 2 weeks away from its big event! Ladies and Gents, this 34th edition still retains great appeal from athletes and federations while continuing on its values and principles of the very first editions. A romantic flavor that has never been abandoned and that has strengthened the ties for generations of athletes that we are happy to find today as coaches, managers or leaders. Faithful to ATLETICAGENEVE, we will soon be on the track so that unspoken dreams will speak with numbers and tears of joy! Welcome to ATLETICAGENEVE 2022 Pablo Cassina President and founder

Three weeks to go !

3 weeks to go ! Time flies but the athletes are ready! ATLETICAGENEVE will welcome them in 3 WEEKS for strong moments, deep emotions, dreams that come true, smiles and tears of joy. For 34 years, we have been the dream factory for athletes ! To be continued ! You are welcome to ATLETICAGENEVE! Pablo Cassina President and founder

Four weeks to go !

  The 34th edition will be held on June 11, in exactly 4 weeks! We are in the middle of discussions with many athletes and managers who ask us questions. If you haven’t heard from us yet, be indulgent, you will all be contacted with a response. We have fallen a little behind the announced response time, thank you for your patience. The many relay teams will be honored and will ignite the entry meeting! It is always an exciting exercise to build a meeting of this level, the main objective of which is to offer athletes the best possible conditions to achieve the performance for which they have worked, suffered and had to question themselves so many once to finally give the best of themselves, once behind the starting line. Here in Geneva. The other day I read an
