The Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships will be the sport’s most important competition on the continent next year between 7-12 August
Already many of the medallists and finalists from the IAAF World Championships London 2017 have set their sights on Berlin 2018 as their next big target.
Germany’s 2017 world championships heptathlon silver medallist Carolin Schäfer is among them. “It will be awesome to compete on home soil and, with almost all the world’s top heptathletes coming from Europe, it will be almost a repeat of the competition here in London.
“I loved the atmosphere in the London Stadium and the way the spectators got behind all the competitors. Like London, German athletics supporters are very knowledgeable and passionate, and I am sure that make next year’s European Athletics Championships a fantastic event.”
