World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade
With just a few days to the start of the World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade22, the timetable and qualification system for the competition have been released.
The three-day event, which will take place at Serbia’s Stark Arena from Friday, March 18 to Sunday, March 20, 2022, will begin with the men’s heptathlon and women’s pentathlon on the morning of the first day and conclude with the women’s and men’s 4x400m relay on the evening of the last.
The championships will include straight finals in the field events, with medalists determined during five of the six sessions, similar to the 2016 edition in Portland and the 2018 edition in Birmingham.
Individual event competitors can qualify by meeting the entry standard, winning a World Indoor Tour Wildcard for event winners in the 2021 and 2022 World Indoor Tours, or by virtue of their World Rankings position, if necessary, to fulfill the goal numbers in each event.
The winners of the 2021 Combined Events Challenge, the five best athletes from the 2021 world outdoor lists (maximum one per country), the five best athletes from the 2022 world indoor lists, and one additional athlete at World Athletics’ discretion will compete in the pentathlon and heptathlon.
On Thursday (18), local organisers marked One Year to Go with the launch of the official website and with the activation of a countdown clock in Belgrade’s central Terazije Square.
Inaugurated in 1987, the World Indoor Championships will celebrate its 18th edition in Belgrade.
