Many are aware and maybe needn’t have to say the Athletics is more than just jumping, throwing, running, walking around, it is a real and great sport activity that can be within us for a lifetime! 

Olympic champion Krisztian Pars, gold-medalist threw 80.59 meters  in the hammer drill competition at this year’s London Olympic games will throw the hammer along with the Russian Kirill Ikonnikov 5th and the 6th Czech Lukáš Melich place at the Olympics in London and also the 5th place in the WorldCup Russian Sergey Litvinov.

Be ready for the women’s 200 meter run parade. Watch carefully because she is a bullet! The two-time world’s best athlete woman’s choice, four-time Olympic and five-time world champion Sanya Richards-Ross. This year she has the world’s second-best record and her aim is to target last year’s  excellent record by the Jamaican Veronica Campbell-Brown, two-time Olympic champion in the 200 meter sprinter.

Another Gold Medalist will join the roll of champions at the István Gyulai Memorial games with the presence of Christian Taylor. Without any doubt, he is the greatest talented racer of to-day. The international media is already present and will keep an eye on him.

Two great hurdles will be seen in the battle of the day’s run, together with the world champion hurdler Jason Richardson,  the European Championship bronze medalist Dániel Kiss U23 European Championship silver medalist and world champion Balázs Baji. 

Many are aware and maybe needn’t have to say the Athletics is more than just jumping, throwing, running, walking  it is  a real and great sport activity that can be within us for a lifetime!

Strong and hard competition is expected in the run of 400 meters by Marcell Deák Nagy, the silver medalist at the former European Championships in Helsinki.  Most probably, the homeland and the home crowd will tremendously cheer and  approve their encouragement during his run.

Men’s 800 meters strong field assembled, Timothy Kitu cannot go for sure. African Cup silver and bronze medalist Anthony Chemut and Job Kinyor will be on the field to race within time and energy.

In both of the  3000 meters, be sure to see a parade of African grand athletics, the Olympic bronze medalist, Africa champion Edwin Soi Chruiyot will surely have very strong opponents and will try to overthrow the Hungarian outdoor best result ever run (7:44.99).

The double world championship silver medalist in the woman’s race  Sylvia Jebiwot Kibet will be having similar goals, and together with the great contestants on the 3,000 meters runners will try to overcome in running faster than anyone outdoor in Hungary  (8:47:44).

In the men’s high jump competition will be here at the Puskás Ferenc Stadion the world champion Yaroslav Rybakov,  winner of many world medals. 

The list of participants is not complete, there will be many more athletic to be seen on the field.
