"The World Athletics Council meeting in Monte Carlo has just decided to give Belgrade the organization of the World Indoor Athletics Championship in 2022! Big victory for Belgrade and for Serbian sport!" Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic told Telegraph.
"Two years ago we missed the chance to organize it, now we coudn't have because we were the most serious candidate. I can proudly say that the Championship of 2022, when the best athletes of the planet come to our city, will push the boundaries of organization, just as we did in 2017 when we organized the European Championship in the Belgrade Arena with great success" - Serbian Athletics Federation President Veselin Jevrosimovic said.
