Athletics coming to Mersin

According to an article from in

The 2005 Winter Throwing Cup will be held in the southern Turkish cith of Mersin.

Whatever it is (all the athletic throwing competitions in a throw-off? Dwarf throwing? Something to do with with running?), it will be different for Mersin and definitely worth going to.
