I participated in the online questionnaire created by World Athletics, in their collecting feedback from participants in the sport. My comments were as follows…..

The future should see us be a fully stand alone sport that has a World Championships every year at its core, no longer centered around the Olympic Games, no longer financially dependent on or influenced by the International Olympic Committee.

Our World Championships in the future should be focused on separating all qualifying and semi-final rounds from a 1 to 2 days of weekend championship finals. This format should be implemented by all member federations for their national championships.
