Ahead of the IAAF World Championships London 2017, the Exclusive Hospitality team looks back at some of the top sporting moments to have happened in the UK

To celebrate the biggest sporting event in the world in 2017 coming to London, IAAF World Championships Exclusive Hospitality has taken a look back at some historic sporting moments in Britain.

As well as iconic events everyone is familiar with, research has uncovered some lesser-known moments that took place on British soil, bringing home what it’s really like to experience sporting history when it’s unfolding right in front of you.

Whether it’s Boris Becker’s Wimbledon win at just 17, or the moment when the joint winners of the first London Marathon joined hands as they crossed the finish line, each landmark identified by IAAF World Championships Exclusive Hospitality is a moment that really meant something to the spectators who were there. Each of these memories has been included in an illustrated timeline ahead of the IAAF World Championships London 2017.

Our packages can let you have prime position, even going trackside before the action starts, so you don’t miss a moment of what’s unfolding. After all, what could be better than seeing history being made right in front of you?”

Niels de Vos, championship director, commented: “The IAAF World Championships London 2017 is the biggest sporting event in the world in 2017 and part of a fantastic Summer of World Athletics.
