The Atleticky Klub hosted athletes from 24 countries in the Czech city of Olomouc just before the London 2012 Paralympic Games. It was the second time that Olomouc had hosted the IWAS World Youth Games.

Nine IWAS junior world records were set on the track and field. These included Russia’s Svetlana Krivenok who threw 8.14m in the women’s shot put F36 and Germany’s Leon Schafer who lept 1.48m in the long jump F42.

Both athletes were awarded the IWAS Athlete with Potential Award.
