The sprint world descends on Nassau, Bahamas. Featuring Noah Lyles, Femke Bol, Ferdinand Omanyala, Torrie Lewis, Christian Coleman, Audrey Leduc, Andre de Grasse, Zarnel Hughes, Bianca Williams, Ackeem Blake and Marco Arop to name a few.

The World Athletics Relays will take place May 4-5 at Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau. The meeting will be a prelude to the relay races of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The very best in the world gather in Nassau to qualify for Paris.

“This event is the crucial Olympic qualifying event for the world’s best-performing athletes from more than 40 countries. We invite you to follow these athletes on their sensational journeys from tropical paradise to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. It’s time to chase the sun – in every sense of the word – from paradise to Paris,” said the World Athletics website.

Nassau is the hotspot. This year’s relays are the fourth in six years at Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium. In 2021 it was Chorzów, Poland and 2019 Yokohama, Japan.
