World Athletics has announced new dates for the World Championships in Oregon

World Athletics has announced new dates for the World Championships  that  will now be held  between 15-24 July in 2022.

The championships in Oregon were initially scheduled for 6-15 August, 2021 but had to be moved to accommodate the Olympic games that had to be moved from 2020 due to the world Corona Virus Pandemic.

In a statement on Wednesday , World Athletics say, "The World Athletics Council approved the new dates this week after extensive discussions with the sport’s stakeholders including organizers of two other major championships due to take place in July-August 2022, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and the multisport European Championships in Munich.

The new schedule will prevent a direct conflict between any of these major events and, with careful programming, will ensure athletes can compete in up to three world-class competitions."

This therefore means 2022 will have a series of high profile athletics events across the world including The World Championships will, followed by the Commonwealth Games and the European Athletics Championships.
