2025 World Athletics Championship

Where is the World Athletics Championship taking place?

The 2025 World Championships is taking place in Tokyo, Japan with the majority of events taking place in the National Stadium

How will Great Britain fare at the 2025 World Athletics Championship?

In Budapest in 2023 GBR brought home ten medals which equalled the country's highest ever return of medals (10, the same at Stuttgart in 1993.)

The team for 2025 looks to be one of the strongest we have ever sent to a World Championship so that record of ten medals must surely be under threat.
