Dear fans of athletics!

As you probably know, one of many components of a success of the event is a good organisation. In athletics, the competition takes place according to the predetermined plan. In recent days the European Athletics has announced the official timetable for the European Athletics Indoor Championships Torun 2021!

The championships are planned for three days, two sessions per day. In addition, on Thursday evening there will be qualifications for three field events and two track events, which will be preceded by an opening ceremony and a unique competition named "DNA Indoors".

DNA means Dynamic New Athletics, it's the competition for the athletes U20. In accordance with the European Athletics' arrangements, six national teams will participate in the DNA Indoors. They will compete in more than dozen events like hurdles or long jump. This competition will have a special form which is not common at the meetings or championships. I can reveal that the last event will be "hunt race". DNA Indoors is planned for about two hours, it will be intensively, interestingly and unpredictably. It's worth to come to the Arena Torun to see something new. - said Piotr Haczek, the competition director of the European Athletics Indoor Championships. 

The timetable for the European Athletics Indoor Championships has been desgined so that during each evening session the finals will take place. The fans will see the finals during the morning session on Sunday, where the men triple jumpers and men high jumpers will fight for the title of the European indoor champion.

- Our goal is to make the fans happy, when they will leave every session of the championships. I think, everyone will choose the part of the EICH, which is most important for them. On Friday, some fans will keep the fingers crossed for Michal Haratyk and Konrad Bukowiecki in the shot put and the 1500m runner Marcin Lewandowski, others will support the 400m women led by Justyna Swiety-Ersetic and Iga Baumgart-Witan on Saturday. The most patient fans will wait all weekend to believe in the success of Damian Czykier (60mH), Pawel Wojciechowski and Piotr Lisek (both pole vault), Karolina Koleczek (60mH), Kamila Licwinko (high jump), Adam Kszczot (800m) and Ewa Swoboda (60m). The last event of the championships will be the final of the women 4x400m relay and I hope that after the final the atmosphere at the Arena Torun will be better than during the Orlen Copernicus Cup when Mondo Duplantis broke the world record in the pole vault. I would like to emphasize that all medal ceremonies will take place inside the Arena Torun, so I strongly encourage all fans to stay on the stands several minutes longer after the competition to cheer and thank the athletes during the medal ceremonies. - said Mateusz Bosiacki, the press officer of the EICH.
