As part of the agreement ASICS will kit the officials and volunteers at all IAAF World Athletics Series events.

Sebastian Coe, IAAF President, said: “Global athletics starts a new chapter based upon solid foundations of modern governance and a renewed determination to protect and promote clean athletes.

“We are delighted to have attracted ASICS, a world class sportswear designer and manufacturer, as our latest official IAAF partner to share this new journey with us.

“This agreement is a huge endorsement of a bright future for athletics whose universality and diversity makes it a natural partner for a global corporation like ASICS.”
