    • The Balkan Athletics Championships or Balkan Games (GreekΒαλκανικοί Αγώνες) is a regional athletics competition held between nations from the Balkans and organized by Balkan Athletics. The first games were held in Athens in 1929,[1] and the most recent were being held in SmederevoSerbia, in 2021.

      The Games of 1929 were unofficial, and organized by the Hellenic Amateur Athletic Association (SEGAS). They became formalized after 1930 and have been held regularly since, with the exception of the 1940–1953 period due to the Second World War and post-war turmoil. In 1946 and 1947, unofficial Games were organized, under the name Balkan and Central European Games, in which CzechoslovakiaPoland and Hungary (1947) also participated.[3]
