London 2017

After the Olympics, the British capital will host the World Championship.


The IAAF Council has announced it will host in London in 2017, the sixteenth edition of the World Championships. The British capital beat off competition from Doha. Recalling that in 2013 Moscow will host this important event and in 2015 Beijing.
"We fought hard to make this stage remain an athletic stadium, and now we can all agree that this will happen; going from 85 to 25,000 seats would have made a stage too small, now we will have 60,000 seats and I'm very happy, " said IAAF President Diack Lamie talking about the future of the Olympic Stadium in London, which will host the Olympics in 2012 and 2017 World Championships.
