Headlined by the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, Nitro Athletics will see stars of Australian and international athletics compete across three nights of blockbuster entertainment at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium in February 2017.

With Melbourne at the heart of the Nitro Athletics phenomenon, a number of international mixed teams will combine collaboration and contest with brute force.
