Personnel in support of Kenya hosting the 2025 World Athletics Championships

Jackson Tuwei, in his speech, said Kenya had organized two successful junior championships where they discovered personal bests.

NBA superstar Amina Mohammed is optimistic that Kenya will host the Championships. It is mainly due to the country’s outstanding infrastructure that supports events of this magnitude.

Hamad Kalkaba Malboum had always wanted to have the continent host the 2025 World Championships, but Kenya was a possible host in his vision.
