IAAF 2017 World Athletics Championship

4global provided security planning, programme management and quality assurance services to the London 2017 World Athletics Championships Organising Committee.

The planning and delivery of the London 2017 World Athletics Championship took place against the backdrop of the two Central London terrorist attacks and the Manchester Arena bombing.

4global seconded four subject-matter experts, including the lead planner, and developed the event security plan with these events always in mind.

This team oversaw the successful delivery of security operations at the London Stadium, training venues and team hotels in a hands-on way.

They also created a security posture for the 2017 ‘Summer of Athletics’, covering the IAAF World Championship, the World Para-Championship and the Muller Anniversary Games.

“Given the security backdrop that the IAAF World Championships London 2017 took place under, the experience, professionalism, expertise and ultimately reassurance was a huge value to the Local Organising Committee. Quite simply, with the 4global team, the robustness of the security plans and operations were never in doubt.”
