The 2021 World Athletics Continental Tour Gold series kicks off with the USATF Grand Prix at Eugene’s Hayward Field on Saturday (24).
Strong fields have been attracted to what is the first professional competition to be held at the iconic venue – stadium for the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 – since its recent renovation.
The meeting will stage 20 disciplines – the women’s 100m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 100m hurdles, high jump, triple jump, shot put and hammer, plus the men’s 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m steeplechase, long jump, triple jump, javelin and hammer.
Launched last year, the aim of the World Athletics Continental Tour is to create a coherent global tour of the best international one-day meetings outside of the Wanda Diamond League, reaching across every continental area. The tour comprises Gold, Silver and Bronze level meetings spanning the world.
