Eriksson: “I believe this decision by the IAAF was unethical and immoral. I was promised to my face by Lamine Diack and Seb Coe that it would be a fair and transparent process. This is not what happened - Diack stopped the bidding process and gave the World Championships to Eugene after a secret vote. I would now like the French police to look into Diack’s role in the 2021 process.”
Now that Lamine Diack has been arrested on allegations of bribery, Eriksson wonders if that could have been how Eugene won the 2021 Worlds.
