By Sampson Adedeji
With just one month to go until the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019, the organising committee today revealed the design of the medals to mark the start of the final countdown to the competition.
More than 2000 of the world’s top athletes will be competing for 192 medals set to be awarded across 49 finals during the 10-day competition, which gets underway on Friday 27 September.
Paying homage to the Qatari capital, the gold, silver and bronze medals were designed by the all-female branding team in the Qatari capital, showcasing the Doha skyline and illustrations of the iconic Khalifa International Stadium, which will host the championships as it comes to the Middle East for the first time.
Nigeria is among the countries that will be vying for honour in the championship with numerous athletes already secured their qualifications and still hoping to use the ongoing 12th All African Games in Rabat Morocco to pick the remain qualification slots.
