Athletics Stats: What are the meet records set at Golden Spike Ostrava?

Golden Spike is an annual athletics event at the Městský Stadion in Ostrava-Vítkovice, Czech Republic as part of the IAAF World Challenge Meetings. It was first organized in 1961. The history of the meeting was interrupted in 1999 when the meeting was not held due to the apparent lack of interest of sponsors. From 2003 to 2009 the IAAF classified the meeting among IAAF Grand Prix meetings. The meet is held every year between May to June. Currently, the 62nd edition of the meeting will be held in the Czech Republic. It is the second-highest world competition just behind the Diamond League. For the 200m, 300m Steeplechase, discus throw and triple jump, it is the highest competition. Only ten cities in the world are a part of the series.

Golden Spike Ostrava 2023

The Ostrava meet of 2023 is headlined by reigning Olympic, World Champion and world record-holder pole vaulter Armand Duplantis of Sweden. Apart from Duplantis, shot put world record holder Ryan Crouser, the 3000m steeplechase world record holder in Lamecha Girma from Ethiopia, and discus world champion Kristjan Čeh of Slovenia are a few prominent names who are in exceptional form and will showcase their talent in Czech. Meanwhile, the women’s 100m hurdles will be one of the most anticipated races as the reigning Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn will be up against Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 silver medalist and World Lead Jakub Vadlejch will be leading the home side at Ostrava in the men’s javelin throw. However, the one name which has caught the attention at Ostrava is Barbora Spotakova. The two-time Olympics and three-time world champion Barbora will compete in the women’s javelin throw, an event in which she also holds the world record. This is also going to be her final game in front of her home crowd.
