It all started..
Last year, IFAM Oordegem received a huge upgrade. In 2010, the IFAM started as an ordinary "open" meeting. The meeting immediately became a major hit with many international Championship minima and some European Lead performances. IFAM has a clear vision to help athletes reach minima towards international championships.
Given this success and the completely unique approach for and by athletes, the meeting rose the following year to a B meeting at the Flemish Athletics League, a theme meeting with a focus on a few disciplines. But that level was also quickly surpassed, so that in 2012 the IFAM grew into a "Flanders Cup" meeting. This is the circuit of the better Flemish meetings. After a few years, IFAM also quickly turned out to be the best student in the class. And internationally, too, the level continued to rise. For example, IFAM has been a value in the top 100 for years, normally around the 50th place in the world!

With the upgrade to World Athletics Continental Tour Challenger Meeting, the international allure of the meeting also increases. For example, the Challenger Meetings belong to level D events at World Athletics. This is very important for the international athletes, who strive for a high ranking in the world rankings. The extra placing scores on IFAM are:
1st - 40p
