Category Archives: European Athletics U23 Championships Bydgoszcz 2017


Who thought that I will make it to this event but here I am. I planned to do as it covers not only Racewalking but also other disciplines, so it is another way of perfecting my “skills”.

The last European Athletics took place in 2004 and it was about time to do again in this cute little city.

Bydgoszcz lies a few hours south of Gdansk and a couple of hours east of Germany. People ” my friends”say Bydgoszcz is not worth a visit but I digress it is a nice little city who offers cold beer and delicious food cheap and with great service. Visiting Bydgoszcz is 100 % worth it.

Bydgoszcz 2017: Who is coming?

The European Athletics U23 Championships in Bydgoszcz is the biggest one I ever attend to. Right now I am sitting in the media centre, going through the pics that I shot yesterday.
