2017 World Athletics Championships to be held in United Kingdom

by The British Asian Blog

I did have my doubts whether the United Kingdom could take on rich Doha, but it seems United Kingdom pulled it off.  London was selected ahead of Doha by 16-10 vote.

The decision for London to host these Championships came after failed 2001 and 2015 bids, and its believed 2012 Olympic stadium will be used.

Overall, this good news is expected to boost UK economy and as well as attract much needed investment to the decreasing sports culture in this country.  It’s time Britain produced more athletes and this success no doubt will give more encouragement to the younger generation.
