2017 World & World ParaAthletics Championships: Last chance to join volunteers programme

Laviai Neilsen

Laviai Nielsen has urged those wanting to help at the 2017 World Athletics & ParaAthletics Championships to apply before the 16 October deadline.

The Great Britain 400m runner was kit carrier to Jessica Ennis-Hill during the heptathlon at London 2012.

“Volunteering can be amazingly rewarding and to be at the forefront of a global event in the UK will just be awesome,” said the 20-year-old.

“If I wasn’t hoping to be competing, I would do it again.”

Following the registration stage where more than 24,000 expressed an interest, those wanting to formally apply have until midnight on Sunday, 16 October to complete the full application form.
