The third edition of the ISTAF INDOOR on 13th February 2016 is already sold out and the box office at the Mercedes Benz Arena is closed! Over 12,600 people are keen to witness at first hand the spectacular athletics bash featuring Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie’s attempt at the world pole-vault record and the comeback of Olympic discus champion Robert Harting. The capacity crowd means that the ISTAF INDOOR is again the best-attended international indoor athletics event.
Upwards of 12,500 spectators will watch 71 athletes from 18 nations compete in a total of eight disciplines featuring top-notch competitors. These include two Olympic champions, a Paralympic champion, 4 world champions, 5 European champions, one world record holder. Once again the successful show format and a special concert by chart-topping band Glasperlenspiel (“Geiles Leben”) will be gearing up athletes and spectators alike for the event. The eight disciplines are the 60-metre sprint (men and women), 60-metres hurdles (men and women), long jump (women), pole vault (men) and discus (men). For many athletes the ISTAF INDOOR is their most important test in the run-up to the World Indoor Championships in Portland/USA (18th – 20th March).
