The 2017 IAAF World Championships was the 16th edition of the global athletics competition organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations and was held in London from 4 to 13 August 2017. London was officially awarded the championships on 11 November 2011.[1]

Bidding process

When the seeking deadline passed on 1 September 2011, two candidate cities (London and Doha) had confirmed their candidatures.[2] Barcelona, which investigated a bid, withdrew citing a lack of support from the local population and financial difficulties.[3]

On 5 September 2011, Doha launched its marketing bid for the 2017 World Championships.[4] The slogan of the bid was "The RIGHT PARTNER for a stronger World Championships." The bid was led by Abdullah Al Zaini and Aphrodite Moschoudi. Moschoudi successfully led Qatar's bid for the 2015 Handball World Championships. Doha also brought in Brian Roe, a member of the IAAF Technical Committee. The bid was for the championships to be held in the renovated, climate-controlled Khalifa Stadium.[5] The Corniche promenade was to hold the road races, with the committee proposing to hold the marathon at night after the opening ceremony.[6]

On 6 September 2011, London unveiled its bid for the 2017 championships with the slogan "Ready to break records." This was London's fourth bid in less than 15 years to host the event.[7][8] The London bid team said that if their bid was successful they would introduce the "Women in World Athletics" programme.[9]

The IAAF Evaluation Commission visited London on and Doha on . On 11 November 2011, the winner was officially announced as London.[10]

Venue

The London Stadium in 2012

The championships were held in the London Stadium in Stratford, London, which hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics, and has a capacity of 60,000.

Six days before the events were due to begin, it was reported that more than 660,000 tickets had been sold, which was a new record for the World Championships, surpassing the previous record of 417,156 tickets sold for Berlin 2009.[11]

Media coverage

Rights to televise the championships in the United Kingdom belong to the BBC.[12] In the United States, NBC Sports holds rights to the event.[13][14][15] In Canada the rights belong to the national broadcaster the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.[16]

Mascot

The mascots for the IAAF Championships and World ParaAthletics Championships were unveiled in April 2017, and chosen through a children's design contest organised by the BBC programme Blue Peter. The mascots represent "everyday" endangered species of the UK; the IAAF Championships mascot is an anthropomorphic hedgehog named Hero the Hedgehog, and for the ParaAthletics, Whizbee the Bee.[17]

Entry standards

The qualification period for the 10,000 metres, marathon, race walks, relays, and combined events runs from 1 January 2016 to 23 July 2017. For all other events, the qualification period runs from 1 October 2016 to 23 July 2017.

Russian suspension

Russia is currently indefinitely suspended from international competition due to a doping scandal, and will therefore not be present at the Championships. Nevertheless, 19 Russian athletes have been allowed to participate in international competition included as "authorised neutral athletes" at London 2017 following a long process to show that they were not directly implicated in Russia's state doping program.[20] These athletes include Mariya Lasitskene (high jump), Sergey Shubenkov (110 metres hurdles), Ilya Shkurenev (decathlon), Aleksandr Menkov (long jump) and Anzhelika Sidorova (pole vault) plus names from 2016 such as Darya Klishina (long jump) [21][a]

Quarantine

An outbreak of norovirus occurred at a local hotel affecting 30 athletes and officials.[23]

Notes

  1. ^ On 31 July 2017, IAAF announced that Russia was still banned indefinitely unless several criteria for reinstatement were met, including meaningful drugs testing being conducted and more acceptance of the McLaren report which exposed the country's state-sponsored doping and led to the ban.[22]
