IAAF Athletics World Championships
The 17th World Championships in Athletics took place from 27 September - 06 October 2019 at Doha's Khalifa International Stadium in Qatar. It is organised biannually by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
Originally, the Olympic Games served as the World Championships for athletics. In 1976 the IAAF Council Meeting decided to organise Athletics World Championships separate from the Olympic Games. The inaugural competition finally took place in Helsinki, Finland, in 1983.epa provides images of the athletes from all over the world competing in these disciplines:
