This week, reigning world champions Raphael Holzdeppe and Bohdan Bondarenko will be among 24 athletes taking part in Baku 2015 Street Athletics, a series of events bringing the thrills and spills of live sport to the Azerbaijani capital’s iconic Fountain Square.

Both German pole-vaulter Holzdeppe and Ukrainian high-jumper Bondarenko won world championship gold in Moscow in 2013, while two 2012 Olympic finalists, Silke Spiegelburg and Lisa Ryzih, will be among the female pole vaulters taking part.

The men’s and women’s pole vault will take place on 24 June between 17:30 and 20:30, with the men’s high jump at the same time on 25 June. The Big in Baku team will be there covering all the action.
