The World U20 Championships scheduled to be held in Nairobi, Kenya between 17-22 August will now begin one day later on Wednesday 18 August 2021 finishing on Sunday 22 August.
The impact of Covid on teams travelling and logistics of moving vital equipment around the world have proven to be a challenge. However, the full athletics programme [https://www.worldathletics.org/competitions/world-athletics-u20-championships/nairobi21/timetable] is able to be accommodated across 5 days rather than 5 and a half days with minimal impact on the athletes attending from over 100 countries.
The new schedule delivers a fuller and faster paced event and we are delighted that the Broadcast rights for these Championships have been taken up by over 14 countries, with 12 of them showing the event live. For all other countries, World Athletics will be livestreaming the morning and evening sessions on its YouTube channel. Full details of how to watch the event will be issued in the coming days.
