In less than a month athletes, international guests and locals will descend on the brand new state of the art stadium on the banks of the Danube River in Budapest. Taking place between 19-27 August the World Athletics Championships will be the biggest event ever held in Hungary.
Ready to warmly welcome all guests is the mascot Youhuu, a raka sheep who is an everyday hero, loves athletics and was inspired by the World Athletics Championships to take up the sport.
More than 1100 years ago, the racka sheep arrived in Hungary with the settling Hungarians and has remained a faithful companion ever since. Sheep can be found all over the world, but the distinctive racka breed is only found where Hungarians live. In particular there were once many racka sheep in the area where the National Athletics Centre now stands.
There is still time to get to Budapest and be part of these championships and of course meet the chief cheerleader Youhuu, who will be at the main stadium, the fan zones and at the road races held around the historic UNESCO World Heritage sites in the city.
