Mannheim is calling!

In 10 days, top junior athletes meet once again in Mannheim for BAUHAUS Junioren-Gala – an invitation-only competition for U20 athletes. On Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th, around 500 athletes from 5 continents and 24 nations (including Israel) compete against each other. Federations throughout Europe use this competition to make their final decisions about who to bring to Jerusalem for the U20 championships. 

            At the 29th edition of the BAUHAUS Junioren-Gala on the last weekend of June (24th and 25th of June) in Mannheim there will be a premiere this time: For the first time, young athletes from five continents will compete. At a recent press conference meeting director Rüdiger Harksen (MTG Mannheim) said: “This year we have an extraordinary response to BAUHAUS Junioren Gala.” A total of 550 athletes from 24 nations will be competing at the top event. The German starters can qualify for the European Championships in Jerusalem. “It is a small European Championship, because 18 nations come from Europe,” said the German U23 head coach Dietmar Chounard. Well-known top stars like Robert Harting (Germany), Karsten Warholm (Norway), Mo Farah or even Dina Asher-Smith (both Great Britain) once started their international careers in Mannheim.

            “Our Junioren-Gala is important to give juniors in the transition phase the chance to compete internationally,” said DLV President Jürgen Kessing. “The city of Mannheim has established itself internationally as a sports city through the event. That also has something to do with sustainability.”

            On both Saturday and Sunday the competition is livestreamed and tickets for the stadium in Mannheim are still available.
