Data Providers – Sports
World Athletics is the international governing body for the sport of athletics. It is headquartered in Monaco. It was founded in 1912 as the International Amateur Athletic Federation by representatives from 17 national athletics federations in Stockholm, Sweden. IAAF’s name changed in 2001 becoming the ‘International Association of Athletics Federations’ to reflect the growth of a professional sporting world which did not exist in 1912 and then again in 2019 to World Athletics. As World Athletics enters its second century of existence, the aim is to further enhance this vibrant sport to offer new and exciting prospects for athletes and spectators alike.
