With Passion, Sweat and Tears

The organizing committee represents the more than 400 volunteers who work very hard to let the event in Goetzis come to live every year.

Pure dedication

The organizer of the Hypomeeting in Goetzis ist the "Verein zur Förderung der Leichtathletik" - an association that sees its goal in promoting athletics. Konrad Lerch and Werner Stroehle founded the association in 1999. Since 1975 it is possible to set up a highly professional meeting because of all the volunteers that make the event happen. The goal of this event is to earn enough money through sponsors and entrance tickets to support up-and-coming athletes in Vorarlberg.

Once upon a time ...

... there was an ambitious team of four that lay the foundation for the Hypomeeting in Goetzis because of their interest in athletics. Werner Stroehle, Konrad Lerch, Armin Hug and Elmar Oberhauser are the ones to thank for attracting the best decathletes and heptathletes every year again.

Founding history

 

1973 – The LG Montfort decides to apply for the organization of the Austrian multi discipline event championships. In July 1973, these championships see a great Austrian record with exactly 8000 points by Sepp Zeilbauer as well as a considerable response of the spectators. When Armin Hug, Konrad Lerch, Elmar Oberhauser and Werner Ströhle experience another record by Sepp Zeilbauer in the European Cup, which is held in Innsbruck a month later, they have the idea to establish an international meeting in Goetzis, replacing the traditional multi discipline meeting in Schielleiten. Thanks to Konrad Lerchs’ function as a national coach, he has contact to numerous international coaches and athletes, which helps to attract world-class competitors.

1975 – This is the year! In spite of bad weather conditions, GDR’s Burglinde Pollak does a seasonal world best in the pentathlon. The organisation and the warm atmosphere of the combined meeting in Goetzis overwhelm both, the athletes and the coaches. Nevertheless the organizer of the event has to face a considerable financial deficit.
