Fair Play at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon

The 2022 World Athletics Championships was the eighteenth edition of the World Athletics Championships which was held in Eugene, Oregon, United States, from July 15–24, 2022.

The competition was originally scheduled in 2021, but it was postponed by one year due to the Covid Pandemic.
