Africa to bid for 2025 World Athletics Championships

The head of African athletics says the continent will bid to host the 2025 World Championships.

Africa has never staged the biennial event, which started in 1983, despite being home to many world champions.

Hamad Kalkaba Malboum says he believes a bid is set to come from one of six African nations.

“We are talking with Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco – those countries have the facilities,” said the Cameroonian.

People said that Africa could not host the World Cup in football, but we did it very successfullyHamad Kalkaba Malboum, Confederation of African Athletics

“I have very positive sounds from some of them,” added the president of the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA).
