Top European athletes from 50 countries will compete during the 33rd European Athletics Indoor Championships which will be held in O2 Arena Prague from March 6-8.

It was in 1978 when Prague hosted such a contest for the last time, that´s why this event is so important for Czech Athletic Association. "I am glad we will present athletics in the above-standard O2 arena in a different dimension for the crowds, partners and also athletes,” said Libor Varhaník the president of the Czech Athletic Association in his statement.

The biggest attraction for Czech fans are 23-years-old sprinter Pavel Maslak, the fastest man in Europe, and Zuzana Hejnova, the hot candidate for the gold medal in the 400m.

Fans can expect a great show from Renaud Lavillenie on Saturday night during pole vault final. If everything goes well Lavillenie  could attempt new World Record.
