MONACO (AP) -- Italy, Mexico, Ukraine and Ecuador are bidding to host the world race walking team championships, while Poland is the sole bidder for the world under-20 championships after Russia was stripped of both events in 2016.
The International Association of Athletics Federations announced the candidates on Monday, after the ruling body suspended Russia last month for widespread doping.
The host cities for the team walking event are Rome; Monterrey, Mexico; Kiev, Ukraine; and Guayaquil, Ecuador. Bydgoszcz in Poland is the only bidder for the under-20 championships.
The IAAF Council will vote on the host cities on Jan. 7.
