Default The IAAF World Champs is a crying shame

Ah, Qatar, a place of pristine luxury, oft celebrated globally for boasting one of the top-10 economies based on gross domestic product per capita. Qatar is home to this year’s IAAF World Championships and also home to football’s biggest showpiece event, the FIFA World Cup, in 2022.

The nation of just under 2.6 million inhabitants came up big financially for hosting the World Championships while handing the IAAF promises of a packed stadium and relishing the opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab World and the West.

But as it turns out, those were empty promises. Attendance has been paltry, with less than 50 per cent of the seats occupied each day. The interest in track and field seems non-existent in Doha. This is a massive fail for the IAAF as athletics was already on a lifeline with the departure of Usain Bolt.
