World Athletics Champs Coming To Budapest
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) just announced in Monaco that Budapest will host the World Athletics Championships in 2023.

Hungary will host the prestigious event for the first time, 25 years after holding a successful European championship.

IAAF’s board chair, Sebastian Coe - pictured above - said in July that Budapest would be the “preferred” host in 2023.

The biennial event will be held in Doha, Qatar, in 2019 and in Eugene, Oregon, US, in 2021.
