(E) Split in bid for 2009 world track & field championship


Eight cities bid for 2009 world track and field championships

MONTE CARLO (AP) - Eight cities have submitted bids to host the 2009 world track and field championships, the International Asssociation of Athletics Federations said Wednesday.

The candidates are Berlin; Brisbane, Australia; Brussels; Casablanca, Morocco; Daegu, South Korea; New Delhi; Split, Croatia, and Valencia, Spain.

The deadline for applications was Jan. 31.

"I am delighted not only to have such a large list of impressive candidates, but that they are so widely spread geographically," IAAF president Lamine Diack said.

The host city will be chosen by the IAAF Council at a meeting next autumn.

Last year's championships were held in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis. The next two editions will be held in Helsinki in 2005 and Osaka, Japan, in 2007.

Edmonton hosted the championships in 2001.
