THE WORLD PARA ATHLETICS 2017

GL events UK, supplier of temporary structures.

After the success of the last championships held in Doha (Qatar) in 2015, the United Kingdom will be organising the 8th annual of the World Para Athletics Championships in London from 14 to 23 July 2017. A total of 1,300 athletes from approximately 100 countries will be participating in the 10 days of events at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium. The male and female athletes are already preparing for the competition and the opportunity to win one of the 213 medals to be awarded at this major para-athletics event.

GL events UK has been selected to provide some sixty multi-purpose structures that will be installed around the Olympic Park site. The structures will house different facilities such as athlete warm-up areas, medical facilities, the security and volunteer coordination offices and the media area. From 25x60m broadcasting centre to the 5x5m stores, everything has been custom-made to blend perfectly into the Olympic Park.

The biggest challenge for the teams was to deliver and install the infrastructures in this major capital city which is constantly bustling with activity. Every corner of London will be in dressed in the colours of the championships, from the spectator access-ramp above the moat of the Tower of London to the network cable system suspended from London Bridge itself.

The London Olympic Stadium will also be hosting the IAAF World Athletics Championships from 4 to 13 August 2017.
