AN ATHLETICS EXTRAVAGANZA

ED WARNER PUTS NEXT YEAR’S MASSIVE SUMMER OF ATHLETICS INTO PERSPECTIVE

IF YOU want an idea of the size of the challenge facing organisers of London 2017, the Olympic Stadium will stage a football season’s worth of athletics in a mere fiveweek spell next year. It is a prospect that is sure to keep the team on its toes as they approach what is sure to be a memorable summer of athletics.

“We’ve got 22 days of international athletics next summer,” says Ed Warner, the chair of UK Athletics and co-chair of London 2017. “We have 11 days of the IPC Athletics Championships and 10 of IAAF Championships plus one day of Diamond League. That’s a football season’s worth of sport.

“West Ham will play 22-25 games at home through a whole season from August until May. We’ve got that squashed into a much smaller period. And the turnaround time from Diamond League to IPC Championships is a few days and then two weeks before the IAAF Championships.”
