Global Sports Communications’ team finishes second to the U.S. in medals


Global Sports Communications, an athlete management company works with 150 athletes from at least 20 countries. Their medal tally at the 2017 London IAAF World Track and Field Championships – if they were a nation – would have finished second, behind only the U.S.

The tally has been made: five gold, six silver and four bronze medals were collected by Global Sports athletes over the 10-day meet.

According to the agency, “London proved to be the perfect backdrop of so many moments of glory as well as the inevitable broken dreams. A sold out stadium with cheering fans almost every single day, as well as a fantastic job by all of the volunteers and members of the organization hosting the event, made this World Championship one to remember for a long time to come.”
