Looking forward to new opportunities as the world emerges from lockdown During the 11 weeks that the headquarters were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, World Athletics developed and finalised its strategy to grow athletics. This culminated in the launch this month of our new Strategic Plan. “A huge amount of work has been put into developing our four-year Strategic Plan, led by our CEO Jon Ridgeon and with input and involvement from all at HQ, our Executive Board, our Area Presidents, Commission Chairs and Commissions,” said World Athletics President Sebastian Coe. “This is an exceptional body of work that brings together all the great things we do as a global sport body with a laser sharp focus on doing it better, and includes some innovative and creative ideas to drive growth in our sport. It is exactly the type of roadmap our sport needs to bring together all our stakeholders with a single vision, mission and clear priorities. “Over the next few months we have an unprecedented opportunity on the back of the increased physical activity of people in lockdown,” added Coe. “We need to inspire these people to continue the habits they have learned and we will with our own campaigns but also by embracing campaigns that many others in our sport are driving.” Download Strategy for Growth: English | French Download one-page summary: English | French | Spanish
