Olympic Hopes Competition

Olympic Hopes Competition

The 19 th of August 2018 is going to be the day when the Olympic Hopes Tournament will be
held in Białystok. Its main objective is to promote the triathlon competition among teenagers
at the distances 0,4-10-2,5 and 0,75-20-5. Białystok is going to host the competitors from the
Visegrád Group: Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland.
The main aim of this event is to select the best athletes coming from the Visegrád Group. The
other aim is to assess the level of sports competition in particular age groups. Such an
international event will allow young triathletes to compare their skills and sports level with
the overseas triathletes. What is more, the competition will select the best and the most
budding triathletes on whom one can place high hopes.
Apart from the Triathlon Olympic Hopes, there will be a chance to participate in other
accompanying events, such as the Triathlon Polish Cup at the sprint, supersprint and Olympic
distances, a 10-kilometre run and the races for children at one of the three distances: 200m,
500m and 1000m.

  • Białystok is the largest city in northeastern Poland and the capital of the Podlaskie Voivodeship.

    Located in the Białystok Uplands of the Podlaskie Plain on the banks of the Biała River, Białystok ranks second in terms of population density, tenth in population, and thirteenth in area, of the cities of Poland. It has historically attracted migrants from elsewhere in Poland and beyond, particularly from Central and Eastern Europe. This is facilitated by the fact that the nearby border with Belarus is also the eastern border of the European Union, as well as the Schengen Area. The city and its adjacent municipalities constitute Metropolitan Białystok. The city has a Warm Summer Continental climate, characterized by warm summers and long frosty winters. Forests are an important part of Białystok’s character, and occupy around 1,756 ha (4,340 acres) (17.2% of the administrative area of the city) which places it as the fifth most forested city in Poland.

    The first settlers arrived in the 14th century. A town grew up and received its municipal charter in 1692. Białystok has traditionally been one of the leading centers of academic, cultural, and artistic life in Podlachia and the most important economic center in northeastern Poland. Białystok was once an important center for light industry, which was the reason for the substantial growth of the city’s population. The city continues to reshape itself into a modern metropolis. Białystok in 2010, was on the short-list, but ultimately lost the competition to become a finalist for European Capital of Culture in 2016.
