Description

Memorial van Damme is an annual track and field event that is the final event of the IAAF Diamond League. The competition was first organized in 1977 by a group of journalists in honour of Ivo van Damme, a Belgian double medal winner at the Montreal Olympics who was killed the previous year in a car accident at the age of 22. Given its status, the Memorial attracts former and future Olympians who usually never fail to set at least one world record at the event. Fireworks displays and concerts give the stadium a very special, welcoming and enthusiastic atmosphere.
