Already many of the medallists and finalists from the IAAF World Championships London 2017 have set their sights on Berlin 2018 as their next big target.
Germany’s 2017 world championships heptathlon silver medallist Carolin Schäfer is among them. “It will be awesome to compete on home soil and, with almost all the world’s top heptathletes coming from Europe, it will be almost a repeat of the competition here in London.
“I loved the atmosphere in the London Stadium and the way the spectators got behind all the competitors. Like London, German athletics supporters are very knowledgeable and passionate, and I am sure that make next year’s European Athletics Championships a fantastic event.”
Tickets and special packages are already available – and selling fast – and further details can be found here: www.berlin2018.info/en/specials
The championships promise to be the most spectacular in European Athletics Championships history and, for the first time, they will be part of the multi-sport European Championships with Glasgow the host city for six other sports.
