Roma 2024 European Championships


the Entry Lists are out! :cheer::popcorn:


Nine world champions headline final entries for Roma 2024


The entry-lists are headed by nine individual gold medallists from the 2023 World Athletics Championships: Jakob Ingebrigtsen (1500/5000m), Karsten Warholm (400m hurdles), Gianmarco Tamberi (high jump), Armand Duplantis (pole vault), Miltiadis Tentoglou (long jump) and Daniel Stahl (discus) on the men’s side and Femke Bol (400m hurdles), Yaroslava Mahuchikh (high jump) and Katarina Johnson-Thompson (heptathlon) on the women’s side.


In total, 34 individual champions from the Munich 2022 European Athletics Championships will be looking to add to their title hauls in Rome including Croatia's Sandra Elkasevic who is seeking a record seventh successive European title in the discus.


At the time of writing, the entry-lists also feature six athletes who lead the 2024 world lists in their respective disciplines: world record-holders Duplantis (6.24m, pole vault) and Mykolas Alekna (74.35m, discus) along with Ingebrigtsen (3:29.74, 1500m) Brits Keely Hodgkinson (1:55.78, 800m) and Molly Caudery (4.86m, pole vault) and Germany’s Max Dehning (90.20m, javelin).


The oldest athlete entered for Roma 2024 is 44-year-old French discus thrower Melina Robert-Michon, born 18 July 1979, who is contesting her seventh European Athletics Championships while the youngest entrant is 16-year-old Romanian 400m hurdles Alexandra Stefania Uta, born 6 October 2007,, the bronze medallist at the 2023 European Athletics U20 Championships.


Robert-Michon, who won bronze in Zurich 2014, will be making a record eighth appearance at the European Athletics Championships having made her debut at these championships all the way back in Budapest 1998.


A late addition to the decathlon entry list is the world record-holder and 2017 and 2022 world champion Kevin Mayer - also a three-time European indoor heptathlon champion - who does not have the entry standard but has received a wildcard for Roma 2024.


"The French Athletics Federation requested a wild card for Kevin Mayer which the European Athletics Executive Board carefully considered,” explained European Athletics President Dobromir Karamarinov


"We recognised that Kevin is a two-time world champion in the decathlon, most recently in 2022, and the current world record-holder.

Given his exceptional achievements, there was considerable merit in granting this wild card.


European Athletics knows that it will add great interest for the public when they see a global star and world record-holder like Kevin competing at Roma 2024 and we are happy to welcome Kevin,” he added.

I imagine it is something to do with the heptathlon entries debacle.

Yes it is. And France put in Mayer instead. He isn’t even qualified.

There were few countries which didn’t withdraw their athletes in time , another example is Germany in several disciplines. It’s just taking away the chance from someone who was hoping to participate. 

I wish the same thing happens to those countries , especially France and Germany in Road to Paris. 

actually EAA needs to think about how to punish those federations, money will not do. But let’s say start with -10 points per missed withdrawal at next Team championship.
