Poděbrady tradition: from the cradle of the current athletics to Czech worldliness

The history of race walking associated with Poděbrady dates back to the nineteenth century. However, a long tradition does not linger at present, to the contrary. Its freshness is demonstrated by at least two outstanding events: in 1997 the Czech Athletics celebrated one hundred years with a successful World Cup, and in 2017 the elite from all over Europe met here at a similar event during the 120th anniversary of the local "queen of sports".
