The World Indoor Championships are scheduled to be held Mar. 13-15 in Nanjing, China. According to an official, World Athletics is in consultation with the World Health Organization to obtain information on the situation in China in order to make an informed decision about whether that event should also be canceled.
Both the Asian and World Indoor Championships are high-level events where top-placing athletes can score valuable world ranking points that affect their qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
