The Monaco Athletics Federation is expecting “many other champions” to join them in the coming weeks to participate in the Monaco stage.
The meeting will offer 13 events: Women – 100m, 400m, 1,000m, 5,000m, Triple Jump, High Jump. Men: 200m, 800m, 1,500m, 5,000m, 110m hurdles, 3,000m steeplechase, and Pole Vault.
