World Athletics U20 Championships


Youthful exuberance defines the U20 event. It provides the first platform for athletes to compete on a global stage for a major international title and gives the world a chance to see future stars emerge. Held over six days, it’s fun, vibrant and fresh as these athletes, often representing their countries for the first time, compete across 28 track and field disciplines. The U20 provides a brilliant platform for cross-cultural exchanges and experiences involving teenagers from diverse backgrounds through a series of youth programmes associated with the event.
