Tomorrow’s 68th edition of the Internationales Stadionfest DKB-ISTAF will present some of the meeting’s strongest entry lists ever and a highly dramatic kick-off in the fight for the jackpot of the ÅF Golden League, filled with one million US-dollars in Gold.

This time around, in the Berlin Athletics Championship year 2009 (August 15th to 23rd), the by far largest German track-and-field meeting will become the outdoor season’s first major international, high-class competition event.

The traditional DKB-ISTAF – ranked fourth in 2008, based on international points for athletic performances – will host more than 280 athletes from around the world. It will be staged this coming Sunday, June 14th 2009, starting at noon (main competitions to begin at 1 pm) at the historic Olympic Stadium of the German capital.
