Held at the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sports Park in Berlin from 16-17 July 2016, these Championships will draw both German and international competitors.
Providing the weather is good, the track is extremely fast and in 2013, a number of sprint world records were set. Poor weather conditions in 2014 meant there was no repeat.
With a population of 3.5 million people, Berlin serves as Germany’s capital and largest city and has established a high-profile reputation for hosting top international sporting events. Berlin hosted the 1936 Olympics, the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final and the 2009 IAAF Athletics World Championships.
