Two Worlds in one month

Reduced to a skin of sorrow since the beginning of the health crisis, the calendar of international athletics promises to be more generous for the beginning of the year 2022. The Council of World Athletics, meeting these last two days by videoconference, has confirmed the dates and locations of the two major events of the first quarter. The World Cross Country Championships, originally scheduled for March 2021 in Bathurst, Australia, are being held in the former colonial city in the state of New South Wales. But they will now take place on February 19, 2022. As for the world indoor championships, they will take place in Belgrade, Serbia, but they are postponed by a week. The event will be held from March 18 to 22, 2022.
