Sparkassen Cup (athletics)

 

Sparkassen Cup (athletics)

The Sparkassen Cup is an annual indoor track and field competition which takes place in February in Stuttgart, Germany. The meeting was first held at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in 1987 and is currently an IAAF Indoor Permit Meeting.[1]

At each meeting, the two male and female athletes deemed to have given the best performance each receive the Sparkassen Cup – a metal figurine of a man or a woman respectively.[2] The recipients are often those who have broken records at the meeting. Indeed, Hicham El Guerrouj's 1997 run in the 1500 metres and Meseret Defar's winning time for the 3000 metres in 2007 remain world records on the indoor track.[3]
