Message from the Premier


Welcome to Nitro Athletics Melbourne. This event is being held for the first time in Melbourne, the sporting capital of the world.

It is an honour to host Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man. We are also pleased to welcome some of Australia’s best track and field athletes as well as competitors from Japan, China, England, New Zealand and Usain Bolt’s All-Star international team to compete at Nitro Athletics Melbourne.

With events held at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park over three exciting nights, Nitro Athletics Melbourne provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to explore and experience Victoria’s diverse attractions and all that we have to offer.

I wish all athletes, officials and supporters the best of luck.





The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
