World Athletics Championships Information

The World Athletics Championships is an American athletics competition held every two years by the renowned international athletics governing body “World Athletics,” formerly IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation).

The World Championships began in 1976 concerning the decision made by the International Olympic Committee about dropping “men’s 50 kilometers walk” from the Montreal Olympics, despite its presence in the game disciplines for decades. Soon after the Montreal Olympics 1976, the World Athletics (IAAF at that time) took the initiative to host the world championship event on its own. This event had only one contest, “men’s 50 Km walk”. For the first time in sports history, an athletic body separately hosted the world championships independent of the Olympics.

Around four years later, in 1980, IAAF hosted a second small event, which had two women’s contests, namely 400 meters hurdles and 300 meters. The inauguration of Championships held in 1983 accompanying all the events is taken as the official start of the competition. Until 1991, the Championships were held every four years; later, it went to every two years’ sports cycle.

With the passage of time and the addition of new games, the World Athletics Championship has significantly grown to be one of the world’s largest sporting events. At present, it’s a ten-day competition from more than 20 nations competing through this platform and across 49 track and field disciplines to crown the world’s best athletes.
