New York and Bermuda added to 2022 Continental Tour Gold

World Athletics has added to more locations to this year’s Continental Tour calendar alongside more traditional events in Hengelo, Székesfehérvár and Ostrava.

The WA has moved out of the established European meets to New York and Bermuda which been added to the Continental Tour Gold for 2022.

This year’s calendar will see 12 different Gold events  that will start in Bermuda on May 9 and end in Zagreb on September 11.

Seven of the Gold events will take place in Europe, three will be in North America and the Caribbean and one each in Africa (Kenya) and Asia.

The two world records were set last year one by Sifan Hassan in the 10,000m at FBK Games in Hengelo on June 6 and the other one by Francine Niyonsaba in September 14 in 2000m in Zagreb.

Double Olympic and world champion Hassan erased the Olympic and double world champion Almaz Ayana’s time of 29:17.45 that the Ethiopian had set in 2016 at the Rio games.

Ethiopia’s Letesenbet Gidey bettered Hassan’s mark two days later with a world record time of 29:01.03 on the same track
