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.
