WORLD ATHLETICS MANAGEMENT was founded in 1988 originally as the Athletes Liaison for the newly founded Athletic Event Gugl Meeting in Linz/Austria. After the political changes in East Germany the sports agency expanded into representing athletes mainly from Austria and GDR. In 1991 we already represented athletes from 7 countries with 3 Olympic Champions at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Until today World Athletics Management represented over 500 athletes from 20 countries with more than 25 Olympic and 30 World Champions over the past 32 years. We organized Track Meets and worked as Technical Directors in European Indoor Championships Vienna 2002.

We believe in a close relationship between athletes, coaches, parents/relatives and representatives of World Athletics Management as the key for success. We cannot do it by ourselves but we can help with our experience to get the best out of athletes. We know about Athletics!


We can now combine our considerable resources to unlock exciting opportunities to bring new and vibrant athletics events globally, which will benefit both the Astra family of athletes, but more importantly track-and-field fans across the globe.”
