if they wanted an African country to host senior WCh they'd probably choose South Africa

 

Yes Durban, most likely.

 

But again, the timing could not be worse for an african bid.

One out of Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt and Morocco will bid for the 2025 world championships. Whatever happens, that should 100% be Kenya, no doubt about it. At all.

It will be bizarre indeed. Seeing the insane atmosphere at the U18 world championships in Nairobi, where the big stadium was 100% full and cheering and dancing and jumping...and that was only for youth athletics! For a senior championships it would be by far the best atmosphere ever in athletics.

 

Of course nations would be much less likely to withdraw from a senior world champs than from a youth event.

After Doha (low attendance high risk) and Eugene (limited seating capacity), I really don't see IAAF taking any risk with 2023. So most likeley back to Europe or Japan.

 

As someone who's going to eugene few years in a row already, i have NO CLUE how they will do it there, this is a small stadium, a tiny city, i have no idea how they can accommodate all the athletes, media and fans! every year i come there i look around and i'm clueless how they will ever do it
