Get Set For the Upcoming Athletic Championship

IAAF or world athletics championships are a biennial championship organized by the International Association of Athletics Federation. It was founded in 1983, and started off as an event held every four years but it was later turned into a biennial event from 1991. In the year 1913, the world athletics federation decided that the Olympic Games will be acceptable as a world championship for athletics, but in 1960 many IAAF members were of the opinion that they should have their own championship. So according to their wishes the first IAAF was held in 1983 and since then it is a regular sporting event where athletes from all over the world participate in these events in various disciplines.  The first IAAF championship was held in Helsinki, the venue where the summer Olympics of 1952 had been held. Before the 1983, event a world athletic championship was held in 1976 which only had the men’s 50 kms walk. As this event was dropped from the 1976 summer Olympics, in the next edition in 1980, two new events for women were held, both of these disciplines but did not form a part of the 1980 summer Olympics.

The championships have come a long way since its inception in 1983. It has grown in stature and size as athletes from all around the world and from different countries takes part in it. Many new events were added mostly in women’s discipline like 10,000 meters 10 km walk, steeple chase, pole vault, hammer throw, triple jump and a few more.
