Only 100 days to go - then the heart of athletics will beat once again in the Letzigrund stadium at Weltklasse Zürich. On Thursday, August 31st, 2023, the national elite will compete: Ajla Del Ponte, Simon Ehammer, Loïc Gasch, Jason Joseph, Ditaji Kambundji and Mujinga Kambundji want to thrill the home audience in their disciplines. As a crowning finale of the athletics festival, the women's 4x100 m relay returns, also with Swiss participation. An overview of all disciplines can be found here.
"Weltklasse Zürich 2023 is not only the first meeting of international stars after the World Championships in Budapest - we are also home to our Swiss heroes. With Ajla Del Ponte, Simon Ehammer, Loïc Gasch, Jason Joseph, Ditaji and Mujinga Kambundji, we are announcing today the first six Swiss stars who will be at the Letzigrund stadium," says Co-Meeting Director Andreas Hediger.
