Stadion Zawiszy Bydgoszcz – Bydgoszcz, Poland

BydgoszczI have another really nice track to post today from Poland.  The original Stadion Zawiszy Bydgoszcz was built in 1960, but this new version was a completely new re-build that opened in 2008.  It has hosted several big track & field meets over the years.  The 2008 World Junior Championships were the first big event held here after the new stadium opened.  This is a nine lane track, which is somewhat rare in Europe.  All field events except the long and triple jumps are on the inside of the track.  The blue track with the gray D-zones looks great.  You can also see that they have a second warm-up track outside the stadium as well.

Highlight video from the 2008 World Junior Championships:
