ATLETICAGENEVE's objective is to allow young athletes of 16 and 17 years old (U18) to participate in the international meeting, is a very important source of motivation.The organisers are convinced that this experience represents a milestone for all these young people.
Competing in the middle of a meeting just a few minutes from the confirmed stars, with a race dedicated to them and which attracts the attention of the entire public, gives them the spark. We are convinced that this spark can be the engine of a whole career (read more about our declared intents).
It is a privilege reserved for young Geneva talents.
Most, if not the majority, of established athletes all have a spark shining somewhere from their youth.
To further mark this stage, the organisers have decided to offer all 32 U18-participants (8 girls and 8 boys for the 100m and 8 girls and 8 boys for the 800m) a T-Shirt with the ATLETICAGENEVE logo and the year. Special edition.
This action will be repeated every year.
We hope, but are already convinced, that this will be treasured and proudly guarded.
