Eugene, Ore., will host the world track and field championships July 15-24, 2022, World Athletics announced Wednesday.
The championships had been set for Aug. 6-15, 2021. But with the Tokyo Olympics moved from 2021 from 2022, the event was moved back one year.
Many athletes will have a busy summer in 2022. The 2022 Commonwealth Games will proceed as scheduled July 27-Aug. 7 in Birmingham, England, as will the multisport European Championships Aug. 11-21 in Munich, Germany.
“This will be a bonanza for athletics fans around the world,” World Athletics president Sebastian Coe said.
