Indian Grand Prix

NEW DELHI: The Indian Grand Prix (IGP) IV will be held on June 21 in Patiala, the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) announced on Wednesday.

The AFI will also conduct the National Inter-State Athletics Championships from June 25 at the same venue.

"The decision to organise IGP IV was taken to provide additional competition to Indian athletes as a 40-member team will not be competing in the upcoming T. Kolpakova International in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and the Qosanov Memorial meet in Almaty, Kazakhstan," AFI said in a statement issued Wednesday.
