Get fit and get ready for the Budapest 2023 IAAF World Athletics Championships – training program for volunteers

As the 2023 IAAF World Athletics Championships in Budapest is approaching, it is important not only for the athletes but also for the volunteers involved in the event to prepare themselves physically and mentally for the competition.

That is why the Volunteer Programme has created a training plan for the volunteers, which is a light running-walking exercise program that takes place 3-4 times a week.

The volunteers' training program was prepared by Dr Zsolt Gyimes, Associate Professor of the Department of Athletics at the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS). Dr Gyimes himself was a national middle distance runner and Olympic coach, and has been serving the sport for almost 30 years. He has coached several Hungarian champions, including 32-time national champion, Olympian, three-time World Championship semi-finalist and national record holder Tamás Kazi.

The volunteers can choose from a range of training programs for beginners and advanced athletes, depending on their age and fitness level. The exercises take a few minutes to do, which may not seem like much, but in the long term they are extremely beneficial.

The Hungarian University of Sports Science has undertaken to train the volunteer coordinators of the Budapest 2023 IAAF World Athletics Championships, the university's Csörsz Street facility will be one of the training venues for the World Championships during the event. The university will also host a one-day professional conference with the world's most prominent sports scientists and last but not least professional coaches from the world of athletics are to gather around for the Coaches' Club's daily events at the university campus.
