Contigency plans for 2021

MONACO (MON): World Athletics President Sebastian Coe is working on contingency plans due to fears the 2021 competition season could be similarly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, informs "It isn't inconceivable that we could end up for the second year in a row with some very badly dented competition ambitions. And that wouldn't just have a financial impact on the sport, it would also have the impact that goes way beyond that, and I suppose it is simply about eyeballs on our sport. We are a global sport. No sport can sit for very long outside that kind of engagement. We need to look at this - and I will be taking the lead in a piece of work that we will start as of today, and that is looking at a possible scenario where for a second year we are not having competition," he said.
