On Saturday the 2nd of July 2011, the athletics club VLIERZELE SPORTIEF
organises the 20th edition of the “Memorial Léon Buyle”

This meeting takes place again the “Putbos” Stadium of Bloso in Oordegem-Lede (Belgium). This stadium contains 8 mondo tracks and is well known by many foreign athletes and coaches from the Netherlands, France and Germany because of its fast track and favourable wind conditions. Many athletes have already had a positive experience during previous editions of the Memorial Léon Buyle. It is within this stadium that several Belgian Championships have taken place, as well as international competitions and even a European cup meeting.

The "Memorial Léon Buyle" ranks amongst the top 5 meetings in Belgium in terms of the quality of the athletes participating. The total volume of prizes is about 15 000 €. Individual athletes can obtain between 15 and 250 € for their performance, depending on objective criteria related to performance and place. During previous editions every time some 200 athletes have been able to benefit from this contribution.

Even more important is that the meeting is very well organised, offering athletes an excellent competition environment for every event. The meeting is particularly targeted towards the athletes who are ranked amongst the top ten in Belgium, the Netherlands and the North of France, as well as to athletes from other countries who reside in Europe in view of participation in an international meeting or championship. We therefore offer a broad range of competing athletes in all events, without pretending to attract the absolute European or world top performers. During the previous editions every time athletes from 20 or more different nationalities came to Oordegem. Every year, the meeting also attracts some 20 performers who qualify for the European or World Championships of that year. This principle is at the heart of the success of our meeting, and is recognised by the many athletes and spectators joining us every year.

The programme for the 2011 edition is as follows:

Women: 100 - 200 - 400 - 800 -1500 - 5000 mixed - 100h - high jump -
          long jump - triple jump - pole vault - discus - shot put - javelin
