Dates for the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Oregon have been set. The new dates, 15-24 July replaced those of 6-15 August 2021.

The event was put back a year due to the postponement of the Olympics, caused by the coronavirus.

The WA council approved the decision this week following discussions with organisers of the European Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games in 2022.

Seb Coe, World Athletics president, said: “We believe we have found a solution that will allow athletes who are eligible for the other two events to compete in them with the Commonwealth Games Federation planning to stage the athletics programme towards the end of their event.

“This will showcase our sport to its best advantage in the circumstances, and we will continue collaborating with all competitions on the detailed programming.

“We would not have chosen to have three major championships back-to-back but it will give us a unique opportunity to promote our sport and its stars around the globe over a six-week period,” Coe said in a statement.
