World ParaAthletics Championships

London 2017 will be the eighth edition of the World Para Athletics Championships, and the first since IPC Athletics was rebranded to World Para Athletics.  July’s event also marks the first time that the Championships have been held back-to-back with the IAAF equivalent. It will be from the 14th till the 23rd of July.

The last Championships were held in Doha, Qatar, in October 2015 and attracted 1,229 athletes from 90 countries.  China topped the medals table picking up 85 medals, 41 of which were gold. An impressive 54 world records were set during the 10 days of competition.

Why don’t you make a reservation for those dates at Park Villa in Mile End. We are just one stop in the underground to Stratford, where the Olympic Stadium is!

Müller Anniversary Games

The Müller Anniversary Games is one of the best athletics events in the world and will play host to the superstars of the sport on Sunday 9th July at the former Olympic Stadium in London.

The prestigious IAAF Diamond League meeting attracts the biggest names in athletics and was a key part of Usain Bolt’s season in 2015 and 2016. The world’s fastest man was victorious in the 200m last July and there were also victories for British stars Mo Farah, Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Laura Muir. American Kendra Harrison stole the show as she broke the 100m hurdles world record to cap a memorable event in the capital.

With the IAAF and IPC World Championships taking place just a matter of weeks after the Müller Anniversary Games, the 2017 event looks set to be the best edition ever as the world’s best athletes finalise their preparations for the global championships.

Why don’t you make a reservation for those dates at Park Villa in Mile End. We are just one stop in the underground to Stratford, where the Olympic Stadium is!
