From 30 June-1 July, the year’s final Grand Prix will take place at Berlin’s Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark, acting as a curtain raiser to the World Para Athletics European Championships which take place in the same venue just eight weeks later.
Attracting both German and international athletes, the Berlin track has the potential to help athletes produce world record breaking performances, as shown in 2013 when a number of world records were set.
Berlin will also stage a leg of the Abott World Marathon Majors on 16 September featuring the world’s best wheelchair racers.
With a population of 3.5 million people, Berlin serves as Germany’s capital and largest city and has established a high-profile reputation for hosting top international sporting events. Berlin hosted the 1936 Olympics, the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final and the 2009 IAAF Athletics World Championships.
