WA COO Jon Ridgeon has suggested that the WC Half Marathon, held in the pandemic, is amazingly difficult.


MONACO (MON): World Athletics CEO Jon Ridgeon says the World Half-Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020 will be "the most challenging world championships we have ever delivered." He told AW: "Our focus is on delivering our first world championships since Doha in a successful and safe way. Led by Dr Stéphane Bermon, our head of health and science at World Athletics, we are putting an immense amount of effort and resource into making sure the teams will have a safe bubble to exist in when they are Gdynia after having been tested beforehand and on arrival. I think it will be a stunning event because the leading athletes have great enthusiasm to compete and there are strong entry numbers. The Polish government are also being very helpful to make sure athletes from all over the world can access the country."
