ATLETICAGENEVE on the direct route to Tokyo, it has never been so palpable.
Saturday June 12 is a date that catches all eyes, and for good reason: the qualification period for the Olympic Games ends on June 29!
ATLETICAGENEVE, therefore represents a step which for many is essential, especially since many international competitions have had to be canceled or postponed, often after the Olympics.
We are in great demand both by Swiss and international athletes who are looking for their qualification standard. This also applies to the national relay teams.
Ideally located, with a city airport, just 3 minutes away from the NASH Airport hotel, athletes know that we can provide them with exceptional competition conditions.
The qualities of the track (so fast and reputed to be called magical) as well as its large 8-lane ring are all assets which have won the loyalty of the best athletes on the planet and won the trust of the federations.
With the entry into the World Athletics Continental Tour / Bronze, ATLETICAGENEVE also reinforces its attractiveness thanks to the points that can be attributed to the ranking (placing points). Indeed, participation in major competitions, in particular the Olympic Games, is made on the basis of points obtained among the 5 best performances (over the period of a whole year) and the points of the classification in each competition.
If the performance points are fixed and independent, points instead in a competition depend on the competition’s category.
It is therefore the interest to participate in ATLETICAGENEVE because as a WCT-Bronze, important points will be awarded to the best 8 in each discipline, according to the "scratch" ranking.
100 days before the opening of the Olympic Games (105 days for athletics competitions), ATLETICAGENEVE is almost a must in the international athletic landscape.
However, there are still uncertainties over sanitary restrictions. The latest information from the Swiss Federal Council is relatively encouraging (read the press release on Swiss-athletics: click here) but do not yet allow us to ensure the full progress of the event. At the moment the number of spectators is still limited to 100 and, to date, we do not have precise directives.
We are, however, reasonably optimistic.
At the same time as the vaccination campaigns in Switzerland and in other countries progress, restrictions should decrease, allowing us to envisage a competition under as excellent as possible conditions.
If fina decisions are not up to us, the only thing we can do, and recommend, is to strictly follow the sanitary guidelines. This could make a concrete contribution to curbing the pandemic.
Be part of the process for a quick return to normalcy!
