Athletics coming to Mersin

According to an article from TrackProfile.com in runnersweb.com:

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.
