A Hearty Nomad

European Athletics 
U23 Championships Bydgoszcz 2017

Event Overview

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 cheap food and with great service. Visiting Bydgoszcz is 100 % worth it.
