China Finishes in Second Position at IAAF Youth Athletics Event

by swisscham in General Interest

China bagged three more medals to finish in second position behind South Africa at the World Under-18 Athletics Championships that ended in Nairobi on 16 July. By the end of day four, China lay in third position out of over 160 nations that featured in the event with four gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze medal behind first-placed South Africa which had four gold medals, two silver medals and two bronze medals. The IAAF Council in 2016 decided to discontinue the youth aid and will instead work with area associations to find a more appropriate competition structure for assisting the career development of U18 athletes. The event was highly successful despite the USA, Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Switzerland having pulled out, citing security concerns.
