European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen speaks at the 2018 European Athletics Convention in Lausanne

The 2020 European Athletics Convention will take place in Tallinn, Estonia from 15-17 October.

The European Athletics Convention is designed to support our Member Federations, offering opportunities for education, networking, planning and debriefing as well as socialising, along with the usual area or interest group meetings and calendar planning activities. 

The European Athletics Golden Tracks award ceremony will also take place towards the end of the Convention when the men's and women's European Athletes of the Year and Rising Star trophies will be presented.

The 2019 European Athletes of the Year were Norway's Karsten Warholm and Authorised Neutral Athlete Mariya Lasitskene, from Russia, both of whom won European indoor and world outdoor titles in 2019.

Germany's world decathlon champion Niklas Kaul and Ukraine's world high jump silver medallist Yaroslava Mahuchikh were crowned Rising Stars.

The Golden Tracks also recognises outstanding figures in athletics away from the field of play and, as has become tradition in recent years, the first Coaching and Member Federation awards will also be presented on behalf of the rest of the recipients of these awards who receive their awards in national ceremonies.
