The Event

"The coolest competition I have ever participated in."
Luke Cutts, Great Britain, PB 5,83 m

On Wednesday, 12 September 2018, the legendary TGW Lentos Jump takes place for the fourth time directly under the Lentos art museum in Linz. It is arguably the most spectacular sports event athletics have to offer: a pole vault competition with world-class contestants which you can watch for free in the capital of Upper Austria.

Moreover, it does not take place inside or at a stadium, but underneath the 7 metre high, mirrored ceiling of the Lentos art museum located right next to the Danube.

This means that the participants jump towards their own reflection. At this event, the art of movement meets performing arts – and it takes place at an impressive location overlooking the Danube, the Ars Electronica Center museum and the Pöstlingberg mountain.

This night, the art of movement meets performing arts at a spectacular architectural space. The sport exceeds limits and athletes approach the limits of a space which is atypical for sports (reflection, height, rhythm ...)
