The championships were originally awarded to Kazan, Russia before the hosting rights were withdrawn as a result of ARAF being suspended by the IAAF. [2] Since then, three cities expressed an interest in hosting the championships; [3] on 7 January 2016, the decision was made to reallocate the championships to Bydgoszcz as it was the only city to submit a bid. [1]

The medal table was topped by the United States with 11 gold, 6 silver, and 4 bronze medals, followed by Kenya and Ethiopia.
