The WCH Oregon22 will be an unmissable global experience, and it will be taking place in the United States for the very first time. The best track and field athletes in the world will come together in a celebration of diversity, human potential, and athletic achievement. This extraordinary showcase will take center stage in the heart and home of the sport of track and field in the U.S: in Oregon, in Eugene, in Hayward Field at the University of Oregon.
Team USA, the world’s #1 team, will have the opportunity to lay it all on the line on their home turf, in a setting that is both richly intimate and magnificently state-of-the-art. An incredible theater for the sport, the newly reimagined Hayward Field will become the epicenter of local, national, and global communities July 15–24, 2022.
The time is finally coming – make sure you don’t miss a single glorious moment! Sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date on all the latest WCH Oregon22 information.
The World Athletics Council has approved the qualification systems for the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 and the World Athletics U20 Championships Nairobi 2021.
Every once in a while, a competition takes place that redefines an event. 28 years ago, at the World Championships Tokyo 1991, Mike Powell and Carl Lewis were locked in an epic duel in the long jump, which saw the lead change hands several times before the former came out on top with a world record that still stands to this day. This showdown has since reached legendary status and is still talked about as one of the greatest moments in the sport.
