This study aims to analyze the effect of the IAAF World Indoor Track and Field Championships on high school students’ awareness of the sports of track and field in the host city, Istanbul Turkey. Descriptive statistics and logistic regression were applied to the data collected from total 5,262 high school students before and after the event. Two groups of questions were asked of the students as participants and spectators. The main empirical findings indicate that the most significant factors that inhibit high school students’ ability to participate in track and field activities are lack of interest and time. Also, more than 25 percent of the students said that factors keep them from participating in track and field are lack of knowledge of how to participate and lack of access to a track/facility. Additionally, it was observed that female students who are interested in track and field would like to learn and participate in these activities more so than their male peers. Another significant finding is that this tournament considerably increased awareness of both female and male students. At this point, this study tries to draw attention to the importance of sponsoring this kind of sports organization for students and encouraging local and governmental sports authorities to host events in their cities. 

Bu çalışma Uluslararası Atletizm Federasyonu tarafından düzenlenen Dünya Atletizm Şampiyonasının ev sahibi şehirdeki lise öğrencileri üzerinde bu spora karşı bir farkındalık yaratıp yaratmadığını ortaya koymayı amaçlamaktadır. Bunun için turnuva öncesi ve sonrası olmak kaydıyla toplam 5265 öğrenci ile bir anket çalışması gerçekleştirilmiştir. Sorular bu spora öğrencilerin aktif olarak katılımcı ve izleyici olmaları durumuna göre iki grupta oluşturulmuştur.  Çalışmanın en temel bulgularından birisi ortaya koymaktadır ki öğrencilerin atletizm etkinliklerine katılmasına en büyük iki engel atletizme ilgilerinin ve zamanlarının olmayışıdır. Ayrıca, ankete katılan öğrencilerin %25’inden fazlası atletizm tesissilerinin eksikliğinden ve atletizm etkinliklerine nasıl katılacaklarını bilmeyişinden dolayı katılamadığını bildirmiştir. Bir diğer önemli bulgu ise atletizme ilgisi olan kız öğrencilerin atletizmi öğrenme ve katılma isteklerinin erkek öğrencilerden çok daha fazla olmasıdır. Ayrıca söz konusu bu turnuvanın ankete katılan öğrenciler üzerinde bu spora ait farkındalıklarını arttırdığı gözlemlenmiştir. Dolayısıyla bu noktada yerel ve hükümet yöneticileri gençlerin sportif faaliyetler katılımlarını arttırmak için bu tür turnuvaların bölgelerinde çokça düzenlenmesini sağlamalıdırlar.
