Havana, October 19 (JIT) - The World Athletics (WA) World Indoor Tour Gold Meeting will start on January 27 with the Indoor Athletics Meeting in Karlsruhe 2023, in Germany.
As announced by WA, this time the series will have another six stops and its organizers expect the presence of the main stars of the field and track, including Cuban athletes.
The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix of Boston 2023, on U.S. soil, is scheduled for February 4, and four days later it will return to Europe to celebrate the third stop with the Orlen Copernicus Cup of Torun 2023, in Poland.
The Millrose Games of New York 2023 will take place in that cosmopolitan American city on February 11, but the media spotlight will return to the Old Continent on the 14th of that same month to illuminate the Hautsde France Pas de Calais de Lievin 2023 Meeting, in France.
The series will close with the 2023 Villa de Madrid Athletics Meeting 2023, on February 22 in the Spanish capital, and the 2023 Müller Indoor Grand Prix of Birmingham, on February 25 in the United Kingdom.
In addition to the events included in this, the main indoor track and field circuit, other rallies in the silver and bronze categories, which award fewer points for the world ranking, are also part of the international calendar.
Although the season will not have an indoor world championship, these events always attract attention, as they form the basis of the preparation for the outdoor season.
During 2022 Cuba participated in these events with nine athletes. Several of them could repeat their incursions in the coming campaign.
It is still too early to announce the strategies designed by the island's athletics authorities. However, it would be logical to think of the long jumper Maykel Massó, the triple jumpers Lázaro Martínez, Liadagmis Povea and Leyanis Pérez, the quad jumper Roxana Gómez and the high jumper Luis Enrique Zayas.
The greatest options of good results exist in the main international competitions coming up, among which stand out the Central American and Caribbean Games of San Salvador 2023 and the Pan American Games of Santiago 2023.
