- We have been part of the elite for a long time, everyone can testify for it. I am talking about the athletes coming here, the facilities, venue and organisation of the competition. Being aware of that, we did not feel fully satisfied, seeing how difficult it was to enter the elite - admits Jakub Chełstowski, chairman of the Silesian voivodeship assembly, who has championed the idea of top athletics in the Silesian Stadium for years. - Frankly, the Kamila meet is no different than the Diamond League. In some respects, it is actually better - those were the words of Johannes Vetter, currently the world's best javelin thrower. Indeed, that was the opinion od every athlete who had the chance to participate in both, including Piotr Małachowski, the legendary discus thrower, who after retiring will act as the meeting's sports director.
In 2018 the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial drew 40 thousand spectators to the Witches' Cauldron. Chairman Chełstowski appeals to the public to surpass this number. - The records are there to be broken. All of Poland is invited. Although Silesia is the host of the meeting, the whole country may be proud of it.
