Considering the development of the political situation in Ukraine, European Athletics will host both the European Cup Combined Events First and Second Leagues in Madeira, Portugal.
The competition, previously to be held in Donetsk, will take place over two days on 5-6 July 2014.
Four athletes are allowed to compete in the men’s decathlon and women’s heptathlon.
The scores of each athlete from the same country will be added together to create a total score, with the lowest men and women’s score being deducted from the total.
Medals will also be awarded in the individual competition.
In 2013, it was Lars Vikan Rise from Norway who took victory in the decathlon and Croat Lucija Cvitanovic in the heptathlon.
We would like to thank the Portuguese Athletics Federation for their availability and cooperation in organising this event with such short notice.
