OREANDA-NEWS. The World Athletics Championship rescheduled for 2022 will be held on July 15–24 in the city of Eugene (Oregon State, USA). This was reported on the official website of the World Athletics.

The tournament was originally supposed to be held in Eugene from August 6 to August 15, 2021, but it was postponed so as not to coincide in timing with the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, which was transferred due to the coronavirus infection pandemic.

The report says that the World Athletics approved the new dates after extensive discussions with interested parties, including the organizers of two other major tournaments to be held in July: the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and the European Championships in Munich. The agreed dates will allow athletes to participate in all three competitions.
