BUDAPEST IS CHOSEN FOR 2023
BUDAPEST was confirmed this week as the host of the IAAF World Championships in 2023.
The Hungarian capital will follow Doha next year and Eugene in 2021 as the city that will stage the world governing body’s flagship event.
In the past, Budapest has held the European Championships in 1966 and 1998. There have also been moves to stage the Olympics in recent years but last year it pulled out of a bid to hold the 2024 Games.
