In preparation for the World Unity Athletics Games, a smaller continental version (most likely in Europe) is envisaged. This would be to test the concept and organisation and to enthuse participants to join the global event a year later.
While initially planned for the late summer of 2018, the Continental Unity Athletics Games may have to be postponed a short while in order to accommodate the training schedules and preparation of our member athletes and the scheduling around the pre-existing event calendars of the different candidate host cities.
CONIA proposes to hold a selection of competitions from the standard list of athletic events at the Summer Olympics as follows:
- 100 metres | 200 metres | 400 metres
- 800 metres | 1,500 metres | 5,000 metres | 10.000 metres
- 4 x 100 metres relay| 4 x 400 metres relay
- 110 metres hurdles for men | 100 metres hurdles for women | 400 metres hurdles | 3,000 metres steeplechase
- Pole vault
- High jump
- Long jump | Triple jump
- Shot put
- Discus throw
- Hammer throw
- Javelin throw
The actual list is to be based on members’ delegations and preferences.
Additionally, members may propose indigenous sports demonstrations as part of the international recognition programme.
