IAAF World Athletics Championships 2017

4 August 2017 - 13 August 2017 | London

The London 2017 bid was awarded the championships following a nine-week campaign.

Speaking in response to the decision, Simon Morton, Director of Events at UK Sport said:

“This is a superb result for London and the coalition that has come together to deliver the bid. London 2017 was the number one event for us to bring to the UK post 2012 and we’ve achieved that. We have promised to deliver the greatest ever World Championships on behalf of our partners, the IAAF so the hard work must now begin.
