Nairobi hosts the World Junior Championships

The World Athletics U20 Championships in Nairobi (Kenya) will be held from August 18 to 22. First scheduled for Tuesday August 17, the first day of competition was postponed to the next day to allow teams to reach Kenya despite the constraints related to the health crisis.


1000 athletes from more than 110 countries will attend this meeting which is being held for the first time in Africa.

The next four years offers unprecedented opportunities for these promising young athletes to move on to the senior World Championships and Olympic stages as we present World Athletics Championships in Oregon in 2022, Budapest in 2023, the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 and another World Athletics Championships in 2025 which will be awarded to a host city early next year.
