FBI in­ves­ti­gat­ing 2021 Worlds award

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

The FBI and the crim­i­nal di­vi­sion of the US In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing al­leged cor­rup­tion in­volved in award­ing the 2021 World Ath­let­ics Cham­pi­onships to Eu­gene, Ore­gon, ac­cord­ing to the BBC.

The In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion for Ath­letic Fed­er­a­tions handed the event to the city without a for­mal bid­ding process, arous­ing sus­pi­cion from the two agen­cies. Gothen­berg, Swe­den, also ex­pressed strong in­ter­est in host­ing the event and demon­strated ad­e­quate abil­ity to do so, but was not con­sid­ered due to the ab­sence of a bid­ding process.
