The 2021 World Indoor Tour has just ended, and World Athletics is announcing the wild card status on the 11 winners and cash prizes.
Wild card and 10k
MONACO (MON): After the fifth and final Gold level meeting of the 2021 World Athletics Indoor Tour brought the series to a close for another year, 11 athletes have booked their place at the World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade 22. It means several national teams for next year’s World Indoor Championships will be boosted by the success of their athletes on the World Indoor Tour. Usually only two athletes per nation per discipline are allowed to enter the World Indoor Championships, but a wild card entry allows for a third athlete to compete. In addition, each of those 11 athletes receives a winner-takes-all US$10,000 bonus. The second half of championships events will be part of World Indoor Tour Gold meets in 2022. In men events Pavel Maslak, Selemon Barega, Grant Holloway, Gianmarco Tamberi and Juan Miguel Echevarria. In women events Javianne Oliver, Habitamu Alemu, Iryna Zhuk, Liadagmis Povea and Auriol Dongmo.
