Athletics is a collection of sporting events that involve competitive running, jumping, throwing, and walking.
Dynamic New Athletics (DNA) will be launched at the 2019 European Games in Minsk. Here’s a bit more information about what DNA actually is:
- DNA is a two hour, unpredictable, ‘winner takes it all’ team-based competition.
- DNA still takes place inside a stadium, but unlike traditional athletics, DNA will only ever have one event happening at any one time.
- Mixed male and female teams with 8 women and 7 men compete over 9 events
- There are 6 track events, 3 field events
- Simple scoring, making it easy to follow for all, not just the current athletics specialist
- DNA focuses on team tactics and strategy and each team has a dedicated team captain who will be heard by the fans delivering tactics.
- DNA showcases new formats with innovative events, entertainment and a party atmosphere with live music and fun event presentation, head to head competition, a new pursuit race and other unexpected surprises through audience participation and spectator games.
- This event is not only for elite competition but can be used at grassroots level and allows to be adapted in a way where only some or all events are included.
- A maximum of 630 athletes can take part in the Athletics competition from 30 European National Olympic Committees.
