Event Details

The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) organizes the World Championships in Athletics. It was initially planned to be held every fours years, but after the third event it was changed to be every two years.

From 1913, the IAAF decided that the World Championships for athletics will be the Olympic Games. This went on for 50 years.

In the 1960s, certain members of the IAAF thought that being in the Olympics Games is not enough. They wanted their own games and in 1976, the members of IAAF had a meeting in Puerto Rico, agreeing that they should separate the Athletics World Championships from the Olympic Games.
