ISTAF Athletics Meeting To Make An Indoor Comeback At The O2 World Berlin In 2014

After a 45-year hiatus, the ISTAF athletics meeting "will make an indoor comeback at the O2 World in Berlin in '14," according to BZ BERLIN. The O2 World "will host the first Indoor ISTAF since '68 on March 1." Organizers "expect 10,000 people for the track and field event, which would make it the world's biggest indoor meeting." In addition to long jump, 60m sprint, pole vault and shot put, the Indoor ISTAF "will have discus throw." Managing Dir Martin Seeber said, "We have worked on it for a nine-month period, measured all flight trajectories. Discus throw is possible. Of course, we will hang up netting to make sure nothing happens. But the arena has a length of 80m." Tickets for the Indoor ISTAF went on sale Sunday and will cost between €5-€15 ($6.60-$19.80) (BZ BERLIN, 8/30).
