World Athletics - Strategic Plan & Olympic Qualifying Process
With the reopening of its headquarters this week, World Athletics has taken the opportunity to discuss with its 214 Member Federations its new Strategic Plan to drive growth, the latest medical advice on the coronavirus pandemic, particularly as it impacts on athletes returning to training and competition, and the updated Olympic qualifying process for Tokyo next year.

Strategic Plan

The key elements of the strategic plan are:


To use the power and accessibility of athletics and our athletes to create a healthier and fitter world.


Grow the sport and make it relevant in people’s lives and the lives of their communities.
Inspire by creating globally appealing and accessible competitions, events, and activities so our talented athletes can entertain and inspire the world.
Lead by being the best example of a well-governed sports federation taking brave leadership decisions and valuing partnerships that deliver athletics around the world.

We will grow athletics, by doing the things we do already even better through an on-going programme of continuous improvement and by delivering new and exciting initiatives and programmes with a focus on four priority goals.

Participation and Events

Deliver more events at every level of the sport. From more world-class athletics competitions in all continents at national, regional and international level, through to ensuring there are opportunities for children to try our sport wherever they live and campaigns for more people to get active through running.

Olympic Qualification System

Further to the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the qualification system in force has been adapted accordingly.

‘Run 1 Tag 1’ Challenge for Global Running Day

On a day that encourages everyone to get moving, runners around the world are invited to celebrate Global Running Day on June 3rd.

Simply run one mile or complete an at-home exercise, then tag a friend to do the same. Share your activity on social media or on your preferred choice of activity tracker, then add the hashtags #Run1Tag1 and #GlobalRunningDay to help the global running community create a worldwide game of virtual tag.

The New York Road Runners (NYRR) has created a Virtual Global Running Day 1M Challenge
, which is free to enter for Strava users. Between now and June 7th, simply lace up your shoes and log a mile with a run or a walk.

There is also an ‘Active at Home’ Challenge
with accompanying resources, including race bibs for kids and at-home PE lessons.

Activities should of course be conducted in a safe and responsible way in a global effort to support and strengthen the running community. All runners should protect their health and safety and that of others by social distancing while running.

Although many will run separate routes while keeping distance from others, we’re all in this together to stay connected and healthy.

Sabir Part of Santiago 2023 Coordination Commission

The Coronavirus Pandemic has not relented throughout the Americans, but despite the difficult times that all the countries of the continent are experiencing, the Organizing Committee of the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games has not stopped its work. Although it has had to adjust to some budgetary adjustments and teleworking, the team remains 100-percent committed and has received unrestricted support from the Government of Chile, the Ministry of Sport and the Olympic Committee.

On a video call this, a new meeting of the Santiago 2023 Coordination Commission was held with representatives of Panam Sports from all over the continent including David Sabir, and its President Neven Ilic, the Chilean Ministry of Sport led by Minister Cecilia Perez, the National Olympic Committee headed by Miguel Angel Mujica and the Organizing Committee led by Executive Director Felipe De Pablo.

In a meeting that lasted for more than three and a half hours, the organizers of the next continental multisport Games presented all of the advances regarding Infrastructure, the Pan American Village, Marketing, Commercial and Budget, among other topics.

In the coming days, groundwork will begin on the country’s main sports complex, where the Great National Stadium Park will be built where several existing venues will be remodeled and new venues will also be built, including the much-anticipated Field Hockey Complex that will be for public use and a new Arena where the abandoned velodrome is currently located.

As for the budget, Santiago 2023 has confirmed USD $506.7 million that will help solidify the important legacy for the Host Country, not only in terms of sports infrastructure, but also in the social sphere which remains the primary objective for the Olympic Movement of the Americas.

“The commitment of the President of the Republic, Sebastian Piñera and of all Chileans to the Pan American Games is more apparent and more present than ever. The main driving force and our main motivation is the great social and community legacy that Santiago 2023 is going to leave. We are advancing according to deadlines and already in mid-June the groundwork begins at the National Stadium for the construction of the first project”, indicated the Sports Minister and President of the Organizing Committee, Cecilia Perez.

“We are very happy and calm with the great work and commitment that Chileans have towards the Games, despite the difficult times that we are living as a region with the Coronavirus. We are confident that Chile will organize an unforgettable Pan American sports festival,” said the President of the Santiago 2023 Coordination Commission, Mario Moccia of Argentina.

“I am very proud of the work they are doing here in Chile. We all know the difficult moment we are experiencing not only here, but throughout the world and especially in the Americas, and they have fully complied with the times and with the work to which they have committed themselves. I see effort, dedication and commitment from everyone, and that makes me very calm,” Panam Sports President Neven Ilic said emphatically.

The Santiago 2023 Organizing Committee does not stop. Despite the fact that there are more than three years until the most important sports festival on the continent begins, the southernmost country in the world has a team working 24/7 despite the pandemic and the difficulties that have arisen. They continue at a steady pace, with the main objective of delivering the best Pan American Games in history.

Boston Marathon Cancelled

The Boston Marathon has been cancelled for the first time in its 124-year history because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Bermuda runners have for years been a part of the field.

The race had initially been postponed from April 20th to September 14th.

However, Boston mayor Marty Walsh said the race could not be held in 2019 because of public health fears.

"There's no way to hold the usual race format without bringing large numbers of people into close proximity," Walsh said on Thursday.

The event is the longest-running major annual marathon in the world, having been held every year since 1897.

Kenya's Lawrence Cherono and Worknesh Degefa of Ethiopia won the Men and Women's races in 2019.
