The 10th Int. Golden Roof Challenge - the first stop of the 2014 Golden Fly Series – lured thousands of sports enthusiasts in the old town of Innsbruck in front of the Golden Roof. The Athletics cult event featuring Pole Vault and Long Jump celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with a sizzling display of world-class athletics!
The Women’s Long Jump was a clear case for the No. 2 of last year's world rankings Sostene Moguenara Taroum (GER) – who won with a remarkable 6.65m jump ahead of Russian Championship medalist Yulia Pidluzhnaya (6.39 m) and the Vice-European Champion Olga Sudarava (BLR) with 6.31 m.

The heart of the event is the 73m long, 25 tonne athletics apparatus 'The FlySwat™', invented by the organiser. It is the largest mobile unit in the world, certified by IAAF and who knows maybe this year a world record is possible!
The Int. Golden Roof Challenge has its successful concept now also carried into other world cities and is the start of the first in-City-Athletics series in the world, the Golden Fly Series™.
