Sold Out “Chasing Down the Dream” in California

Sold Out “Chasing Down the Dream” in California as major event partner for last chance US Javelin World Championships qualifier at Chula Vista, CA

Sold Out National Event Management (Sold Out) will be “Chasing Down the Dream” in California this week as major event partner of the last chance US Javelin World Championships qualifier at Chula Vista, California.

The world's top javelin athletes will compete at Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center on Thursday, 21 July 2017 (local time / Friday, 22 July AEST) for their last chance to qualify for the 2017 IAAF World Championships.

Following Sold Out’s involvement with Australia’s premier athletics event “Nitro Athletics” earlier this year, the “Chasing Down the Dream” event in California continues Sold Out’s international athletics involvement as well as its 24-year history of supporting international sporting events, athletes and teams.

“It’s so exciting to have Sold Out supporting us as our major event partner.  I met the Sold Out Events team at the Nitro Series in Australia and they did an amazing job. They treated the athletes like stars so that we could compete to the best of our ability. Because of them we can really take this event to the next level,” Olympian Cyrus Hosteler said about the partnership.

Cyrus Hosteler, who just qualified to compete at the 2017 IAAF World Championships to take place in London from 4 – 13 August 2017, is organizing the event with the aim to offer his javelin colleagues another chance to meet the IAAF World Championships qualifying standards.  Some of the top men’s and women’s javelin throwers in the world from both the USA and Canada will be chasing their dreams at the event to make the World Championship team. 

“We are very excited to be the major event partner of “Chasing Down the Dream” and to be able to support an event and athletes of this caliber.  It will be great to be back in the USA after having been involved with the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City 15 years ago and we are looking forward to more events like this in the future,” Thomas Staunton, Sold Out CEO, said.

During the “Chasing Down The Dream” event, Chula Vista Training Center, which is home to some of the best athletes in the world, will be open to the public for the first time.  Special guest and former javelin world record holder Tom Petranoff will be putting on a Turbo Jav clinic for kids and adults to learn about the javelin.  Spectators will have a chance to test their javelin accuracy, distance, and speed.
