Welcome to the home of the Golden Fly Series, the creation of former Austrian national Athletics Coach Armin Margreiter. Armin is the Meet Director of the Golden Roof Challenge (Innsbruck, AUT) whose dream was to bring the most spectacular Queen of Olympic Sports - Athletics - to the heart of some of the world's most beautiful cities and deliver attractive elite sports events to the public. The Golden Fly Series does just that, it is the World's first ever in-city athletics tour which will include from 2013 stops in four of Europe's most attractive locations: Innsbruck, Munich, Cologne and Salzburg.
In 2016, the Golden Fly Series jumps forward to become a global tour, celebrating Carnaval style in Rio de Janeiro! Check out our amazing tour stops and watch for our news.
The Golden Fly Series is entertainment for all the family! Entry to all of the tour stops is free of charge so fans can observe the elite athletes in close proximity as they participate in the Pole Vault and Long Jump.
Spectators will share the athletes emotion with each attempt on the unique apparatus called the FlySwat the largest mobile track and field facility in the World. The Golden Fly Series is keen to teach kids about athletics and a healthy lifestyle and that is why alongside the elite event our tour stops are encouraged to organise children and youth events. This theme will be developed in the near future on these pages!
Innovative laser specialist MEDIALAS / GER developed in cooperation with Golden Fly Sports the 'Prime Line' - a radar-based laser unit which will display the ‘mark to jump’ in the long jump events.
MEDIALAS already developed laser displays for Ski Jumping. This has now been adapted world exclusive for the Golden Fly Series.
