From July 31 to August 1 the competition “State President’s Prize in Athletics” will take place in Valmiera, in Jānis Daliņš stadium. The competition will be among national teams from the Baltic states. The competition for the State President’s prizes will be held for the 21st time. Parallel to national teams, this summer the competition will be also among the Baltic states for U16 age group.

Starting from 1995 when the “State President’s Prize in Athletics” was organized for the first time, this summer the competition for the State President’s prizes will be held for the 21st time. Since 2012 the competition takes place among national teams from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Last summer the winner’s prize went to Latvian national team, while the best individual results were achieved by discus throwers from Lithuania – Andrius Gudžius and Zinaida Sendriūtė.

In recent years the “State President’s Prize in Athletics” has become one of the main athletics competitions in the Baltics. In Latvia and Valmiera it is an excellent opportunity to see not only the leading athletes from Latvian national team, but also European and world-class athletes from Estonia, Lithuania and other countries.

In Valmiera athletes have always achieved great individual performance results. In recent years athletes have had an additional motivation – the new format of the competition where results of every athlete are important for the national ranking. Athletes can also gain valuable money prizes when achieving high quality results according to international athletics scoring tables.
