Successes of British Athletics at the IAAF World Championship

All the wins from the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop

In this year’s IAAF World Championships, athletes such as Dina Asher Smith, Adam Gemili, and Eilidh Doyle recouped 6 medals for Great Britain. We won the Gold in the Men’s 4x100m relay and Men’s 10,000m. We took the Silver in the Men’s 5000m, Women’s 4x400m relay, and the Women’s 4x100m relay. Lastly, we claimed the Bronze in the Men’s 4×400 relay. Customers who visited the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop were prized with an in-house Mo. He got quite a lot of action!

Setting up the British Athletics Official Merchandise Shop, us at Event were in a race against the clock to open up shop. We made quick moves and drilled all our resources, finishing with a winning store that hosted some Great British Athletes and excited fans.

On Wednesday, we received a visit from Sarah McDonald (1,500m) and Aly Dixon (marathon). They chatted, took pictures, and signed autographs for the fans.

The shop greeted some passionate fans. Most were on their way to the stadium, to shout and cheer (and possibly bump into Usain Bolt). Some were retiring to their sofa, securing a clear view of all the action. Either way, these customers made sure to #REPRESENT the British Athletics team, at the IAAF Word Championship, in London 2017.
