The World Athletics Indoor Tour will offer enhanced competition opportunities next year with the introduction of three tiers of competition – Gold, Silver and Bronze – comprising 26 meetings spread across 12 countries in Europe and North America. The expanded tour will broaden the geographical spread of meetings around the world and incorporate additional area level competitions.
Heading into its sixth season, the World Athletics Indoor Tour will feature six Gold level meetings in 2021, including the Orlen Copernicus Cup in Torun. New York’s Millrose Games, one of the oldest and most prestigious indoor meetings in the world, has been added to the circuit for next year. We're very happy that our meeting is still one of the most prestigious and has been appreciated by World Athletics.
The scoring disciplines on the World Athletics Indoor Tour rotate each year. For 2021 the Gold level scoring disciplines will be:
Men: 400m, 1500m, 60m hurdles, high jump, long jump
Women: 60m, 800m, 3000m/5000m, pole vault, triple jump, shot put
Each athlete’s best three results will count towards their overall point score. The athlete with the most points in each scoring discipline at the end of the tour will be declared the winner and will be awarded a USD$10,000 bonus along with a wild card entry for the World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade 2022.
Each Gold meeting will offer at least USD$7000 in prize money for each individual discipline on the programme, including USD$3000 to the winner.
