A trophy for the best national federation

After the athletes, World Athletics unveiled the six finalists for the annual National Federations Trophy. It will be presented next month, along with the other awards from the international athletics body, at the World Athletics Awards 2022 ceremony. The Member Federation Award recognises a national governing body that is particularly active in serving its athletes, fans and the wider community. The finalist federations were nominated by each of the six continental confederations. The decision will be between Brazil, which hosted six international events in 2022; Guam, whose leadership reforms have led to a resurgence of athletics in the country; Jamaica, which hosted the Carifta Games despite a difficult health and economic situation; Kenya, the first country where the athletics federation signed the Climate Action Framework Agreement; South Korea, which will host the Asian Under-20 Championships next year and has submitted a bid for the Asian Championships in 2025; and finally Spain, where the first European Trail and Mountain Running Championships were held in El Paso this year.
