The content, which will appear on both the World Athletics website and across its social media channels, is divided into four themes: Kids, Active, Rewind and Unwind.
Athletics@Home – Kids includes activities, quizzes, online tutorials and interviews with some of the sport’s biggest stars aiming to entertain and educate while providing ideas to explore and motivation to exercise. We kick off today with a DIY project: designing your own spikes!
Athletics@Home – Active highlights a number of exercises, suitable for the whole family and fans of all ages, to help you stay fit and healthy at home. Look for some special guest appearances here, too.
Athletics@Home – Rewind is a nightly feature looking back at sensational athletics action from the past. It was launched last week with daily World Athletics watch parties at 9pm CET on the World Athletics YouTube channel where they’re reliving a number of sensational finals from last year’s World Athletics Championships in Doha.
Athletics@Home – Unwind features suggestions of athletics-related books to read, films to watch and music playlists from some of your favourite athletes, including the likes of Noah Lyles’ pre-race tunes.
