All Roads Lead to Gothenburg ; Sport-BY-SPORT GUIDE TO 1995: Trinidad's Finest to Set Tempo for Visit of Calypso Cricketers as Ryder Cup Heads for Rochester : ATHLETICS


Rowbottom, Mike, The Independent (London, England)


Unoriginally, 1995 has been designated "The Year of Athletics" by Primo Nebiolo, president of the International Amateur Athletic Federation. What, one wonders, was the fixture-crammed year of 1994? The Year-And-A-Half of Athletics, perhaps.

Whatever the designation, most within the sport will welcome the contours of 1995. After the endless mountain range that was last season, it rises comfortingly towards a single peak - the IAAF World Championships in Gothenburg (4-13 August).

The foothills form a familiar progression, starting with the indoor world championships in Barcelona (10-12 March). Colin Jackson is likely to seek the world 60 metres hurdles title, one of the very few he has not yet won, and the opportunity is there for athletes to break through to the top rank as Du'Aine Ladejo did in winning the European indoor 400m title last March.

Durham hosts the World Cross-Country Championships on 25 March, with the London Marathon on 2 April. And Britain's team spirit will be put to its now annual test in the European Cup final on 24-25 June at Villeneuve d'Ascq, France.

Despite widespread dissatisfaction over their biennial status since 1991, the World Championships are likely to attract as strong an entry as gathered in Stuttgart two years ago. From a British point of view, one of the main questions will be whether theBig Three - Linford Christie, Jackson and Sally Gunnell - can retain their titles.
