Jerusalem had its debut as a host of European Athletics Junior Championships. There, from 7th till 10th of August, on Givat Ram Stadium, competition for athletes who are under the age of 19 took place.
Our company was the Official Equipment Supplier for the competition.
Young athletes were able to fight for medals using our javelins, discuses, hammers and shots. We equipped the stadium with a set of gear necessary for all events of the competition - and that is not limited to throwing implements only. We congratulate athletes on great results!
It is worth mentioning that the first champion competition for juniors - under the name of European Junior Games - was organized in 1964 in Warsaw thanks to the initiative of a group of Polish athletics activists.
Since 1970 - competitions, which are held every two years, have been added to the calendar of championships of European Athletics Federation as European Athletics Championships Junior.
Jerusalem debuted as a host of U20 competition, but it has been known by athletes as a host of European Athletics U18 Championships, which were held on Givat Ram Stadium last year.
On the top of the medal classification of European Athletics U20 Championships in 2021 and 2019 was Great Britain. In 2023, the representation of Germany had their triumph. Poland won 5 medals and took 8th place in the classification.
