Looking forward to the IAAF Continental Cup Ostrava 2018

Looking forward to the IAAF Continental Cup Ostrava 2018

The track and field season will soon culminate with the IAAF Continental Cup Ostrava 2018, which will take place from 8-9 September.

All four teams have now been named following a busy track and field season that has included the European Championships, African Championships, Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, Central American and Caribbean Games and NACAC Championships.

The IAAF Continental Cup is an exciting climax to a summer season in which there has been no senior global outdoor championships. As a team competition which brings together each continent, athletes from a principally individual sport and who usually represent their country uniquely come together to battle for their areas.

Athletes will be aiming to collect team points, individual prize and a piece, quite literally, of the unique IAAF Continental Cup Ostrava 2018 trophy.

Before the focus turns fully to Ostrava, though, many of the world's best athletes will be in action at the two IAAF Diamond League finals this week in Zurich and Brussels.
