Who was Mon?
Our annual “Meeting voor Mon” is a tribute to the coach Mon Vanden Eynde. He guided topathletes such as Gaston Roelants, André Dehertoghe and Ivo Van Damme to several Olympic medals and European and world records.
Daring Club Leuven Atletiek organizes as each year again the “Meeting voor Mon”. This is the last contest before the European Championships in Berlin. A last opportunity for our athletes to measure themselves with their opponents.
On this website, athletes are able to register for the meeting, and athletes and visitors will find all the practical information about the event.
FOR FOREIGN ATHLETES
We leave it up to the foreign athletes to choose their travel and accommodation. In case of agreement before the meeting, the organizers can give a compensation of 125 euro for some elite athletes, to be paid after competing in the meeting. Please contact Remi VAN OPHEM by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you think to be in that case.
