  (Redirected from European Athletics Junior Championships)

Women's 800 meter in heptathlon at the 2015 Championships

The European Athletics U20 Championships (formerly named the European Athletics Junior Championships up to 2015) are the European championships for athletes who are 19 years of age or under, which is the age range recognised by the IAAF as junior athletes. The event is currently organized by the European Athletic Association.

The history of the biennial athletics competition stems from the European Junior Games, which was first held in 1964. The event was first sanctioned by the continental governing body, the European Athletic Association at the following edition in 1966 and after a third edition under the games moniker it was renamed to its current title.[1][2]
