Financial help for pro athletes

New pandemic fund launched

World Athletics and the International Athletics Foundation (IAF) have launched a USD 500,000 (EUR 457,000) fund to support professional athletes experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The fund will be used to assist athletes who have lost most of their income in the last few months due to the suspension of international competition while the world combats the global health emergency.

Applications for assistance will be submitted through the six continental Area Associations of World Athletics.
