IAAF Official Advises Nigeria On Hosting 2025 World Championship (Audio)

The Deputy Communications Director of IAAF, Anna Legnani has advised Nigeria on how to prepare to host the 2025 World Championship.

International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) president, Sebastian Coe, and the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) president, Shehu Gusau, have both talked up the possibility of Nigeria hosting the 2025 World Championship.

Legnani spoke about Nigeria and the possibility to host the competition during the just concluded African Senior Athletics Championship in Asaba.

In her words, Anna Legnani said: “The IAAF President has said here in Asaba that he would want to bring the world championship to Africa in 2025.”

“So, there’s possibility. What I would advise is that Nigeria stages other competitions maybe on Africa level to gain more experiences because a world championship is a very big organisation and a very big budget.” She added.
