Ibero-American Championships in Athletics

The Ibero-American Championships in Athletics (Spanish: Campeonato Iberoamericano de Atletismo) is a biennial athletics competition for athletes representing Ibero-American countries as well as a number of other Spanish- or Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa.[1] The competition is organised by the Asociación Iberoamericana de Atletismo (Ibero-American Athletics Association).[2]

The idea of such a competition first came about in 1982 when the Asociación Iberoamericana de Atletismo (AIA) was officially formed in Madrid with 22 countries as signatories. Following official sanctioning by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the AIA established the Ibero-American Championships which first took place in Barcelona, Spain in 1983.[3]
