It was quite unique in the years 1988-94 with all the international stars both on the athletic track and on the environmental issue finding their way to Oslo in the spring for the Clean Air Games!
At that time young promising Norwegian athletes like Geir Moen, Steinar Hoen and Vebjørn Rodal had the opportunity to meet world class athletes like Linford Christie, Colin Jackson, Jan Železný, Sally Gunnell OBE and many more! We met in a unique friendly atmosphere where the social aspect was equally important to the athletics. The events at Lambertseter Stadium May 30th will be 100m M+W, 300m M+W, 110/100mh, 300mh, 4x100m M+W, 4x400m W, Long Jump M, Pole Vault M, High Jump W, Javelin W, Shot Put M, Hammer M+W.
Among the best memories from the environment seminars we remember the Czechoslovak environmental activist, who had been punished for his international publications from the communist regime, when he met the Czechoslovak javelin world record holder, Jan Zelezny, at the Clean Air Games Seminar. We also remember visits from World Watch Institute, and Erik Bye singing his famous songs.
The program for the 2018 seminar on May 29th is under consideration, but we already have confirmation from the famous Norwegian Polar Explorer Borge Ousland, who is a unique eye witness to the global warming.
Friidrett er jo en fascinerende idrett, hvor man kan konkurrere mot alle andre som har deltatt i samme stevne opp gjennom historien. Her kan Jonathan Quarcoo og Karsten Warholm konkurrere mot Linford Christie og Vebjørn Rodal, Ingar Kiplesund mot Erik Nijs, Sigrid Borge mot Trine Hattestad, Markus Thomsen mot Lars Arvid Nielsen, Eirik Dolve, Sondre Guttormsen og Pål Haugen Lillefosse mot Trond Barthel …. Det blir spesielle premier for de som setter stevnerekorder!
Norsk friidrett hadde en kjempesesong i 2017. I 2018 er det EM i Berlin i august. EM i 1994 er så langt det beste EM for Norge noen gang. Kan det bli enda bedre i 2018?
I 2018 er både friidrett og Miljø INN!
