World championships hub launched

Athletics Australia is proud to launch the new look athletics.com.au as we celebrate the upcoming season of major international championships.

Set to become the home of athletics, the website is your one-stop shop for coverage of our Australian teams travelling to compete at the IAAF World Youth Championships, the IPC Athletics World Championships and the IAAF World Championships, as well as the upcoming World University Games and Commonwealth Youth Games.

Published content has been designed to provide you, the athletics community, with access to what’s happening on the world stage. There are direct links to championship websites for entry lists, live results and statistics, profiling information on teams that travel under the banner of Athletics Australia and information on upcoming instalments of the IAAF Diamond League.

The dedicated news stream will provide fans of the sport with continued updates on competition outcomes for our charges across the globe and from next week you will find a new section to be filled with downloads that will make your championship experience as a fan as convenient as possible.

Excitingly for the athletics community, we also want you to join the conversation about what’s happening in your athletics world by using the hashtag:

#greenandgold

A social media wall featuring the best content from Instagram, Facebook and Twitter will commence on athletics.com.au next week, with featured posts to include everything from fans enjoying the events from the comfort of their couch to athletes battling through a hard winter of training.

Our success on the world stage should be shared with all those that participate in our sport.

Whether you send a shout out to your favourite athlete, or share your own athletics journey in training or at competition, we want to hear from you as regularly as possible. Get involved and join the conversation!

The coming months present the athletics community with a great opportunity to celebrate the many successes that hundreds, if not thousands, of people have contributed to making a reality.

We can’t wait to share the experience with you all, and look forward to hearing from you as we celebrate the greatest sport in the world on some of the grandest stages for competition available.
