Nitro AthleticsSome of the world’s best track and field stars would converge on Melbourne in February, setting up base ahead of the second week of the Nitro Athletics spectacular, Minister for Tourism and Major Events and Member for Lara John Eren announced.

 

Set over three action-packed nights at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium, Nitro Athletics will feature Australia’s stars of track and field alongside the biggest names in athletics.

 

“There’s nothing like watching the best of the best up close. Geelong is home to an army of fine young athletes, and this just might be the added inspiration they need to make it to the top of the world,” Eren said.

 

The star athletes will train at state-of-the-art facilities at the Landy Park Athletics Centre, the Deakin Elite Sports Precinct, the Leisurelink Aquatic Centre and the Kardinia Park Aquatic Centre. The teams-based blockbuster will feature the fastest man ever to walk the earth, Usain Bolt.

 

Nitro Athletics begins on February 4, continues February 9 and culminates with a final on February 11.
