    Was the World Indoors selected as Birmingham before or after we knew of the choice of CG venue as Gold Coast.?
    I never can understand if the UKA people knew of the CG choice some time before the choice of Birmingham why it happened. The problems of a March indoors and a CG a month later would surely have been known and we could have gone for a WI not in a year with three main comps.
    Was it inevitable??

    CGs were awarded in Nov 2011 – 2 years before the IAAF awarded Brum the indoors.

    Agree it’s a weird one. At the risk of seeing politics where it doesn’t exist – could it be that UKA were being less than supportive of England Athletics?
