The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) will now be officially called as World Athletics. The sport’s international governing body not only changed it’s name and logo on all social media platforms but also the URL of it’s official website.
The name change had been suggested in a bid to make the sport more accessible. “Welcome to the new World Athletics website, the place to come for all things about our wonderful sport. We’ll be bringing you new features about athletes and the sport, as well as making it easier to find the things we know you love,” the sport’s international governing body’s website said.
The website also said that information about events and news about athletes, rules of the sport, historical stats and features that’ll inspire people to be active is made ready and accessible to anyone and everyone.
