’Our best will be in Helsinki at 2012 European Athletics Championships,’ say unanimous national federations
The continent’s best athletes will compete at the 2012 European Athletics Championships following a renewed and unanimous commitment from all 50 of European Athletics’ Member Federations.
Leaders of the national federations from across Europe gave their full support to the 2012 Championships, which will take place in Helsinki between 27 June and 1 July, at the recent European Athletics Convention held in Belgrade.
The 2012 European Athletics Championships will be a pivotal event on that year's athletics calendar as it comes just a few weeks before the Olympic Games later that summer in London.
European Athletics President Hansjörg Wirz warmly welcomed the support at this weekend's European Athletics Council meeting in Lisbon.
