IAU 100 km World Cup 2010 has been allocated to Gibraltar

During its recent meeting in Seoul, Korea, the IAU Executive Council assigned the organisation of the 2010 edition of the IAU 100 km World Cup (including 100 km European Championships) to Gibraltar. The short-distance track and field events will be held in Doha, Qatar.

Local businessman Albert Parody gave the IAU delegation a tour of Gibraltar followed by an official dinner. This seemed to have sweetened the visiting delegates' mood towards Gibraltar's application to become an IOC member. As part of the agreement, the I.A.U. President (Dirk Strumane) has promised to start lobbying the IOC President, Jacques Rogge in the hope of gaining Gibraltar's historic entry into the Olympics. This is a real coup for athletics and sport in Gibraltar on the whole. It is hoped that this influential man will press hard for our rightful entry into the world's most prestigious sporting event.

The Gibraltar Amateur Athletic Association is now a member of the IAAF and recently affiliated to the IAU.

The race will take place on November 6th, 2010.

"The IAU Family is gradually expanding. Recently we could welcome Gibraltar as our 46th member. Gibraltar is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom, located in southwesters Europe adjoining the southern coast of Spain.

The Gibraltar Amateur Athletic Association is a member of the IAAF and recently also affiliated to the IAU.

Our new dynamic member is already working on a plan to stage a 100 km World Cup event in the future so we will definitely hear more interesting news from them in the next months."

Dirk Strumane

IAU President
