ATLETICAGENEVE 2024RESULTS

5 weeks to go

35th edition of ATLETICAGENEVE, memorial Georges  Caillat The Geneva International meeting is now anchored in the tradition and corresponds to the official launch of the Swiss international season. And the word international is not in vain: ATLETICAGENEVE regularly attracts more than 60 nations (65 in 2022) for the 550 athletes from 5 continents. Bronze, the meeting knew how to evolve with modern athletics and keep intact its attractiveness and even develop it! Despite its extremely modest (not to say fragile) budget, the meeting continues on its way thanks to the help of the work of passionate volunteers who receive no salary or compensation of any kind.

Code of Conduct and Safeguarding policies

ATLETICAGENEVE was created in 1988 and the objective was to offer an international meeting where Swiss athletes could find high-level but also “clean” international competition. In those years, anti-doping controls were probably less efficient than today and their distribution in meetings was quite rare. We have always voluntarily requested the presence of the control agencies to come and carry out tests (and sometimes they have come), but we introduced from the beginning of the 90s, registrations obliging the athletes to make a declaration on their honor that they weren’t doped. We immediately extended this requirement to all meetings of the EAP circuit and from the end of the 1990s, from the creation of the first EAP website, we put unified registration forms online, with this clause. Today, all the meetings of the circuit, under our impulse, adhere to a Code
