Name: Jayliah Jada van Gorkum

Hi my name is Jayliah Jay van Gorkum and I am ambassador for the sport of athletics! The reason I became an ambassador is of course because I practice the sport myself at a high level. Besides that I think it is a good initiative for the lgbtqi+ community. Sexuality and sport and acceptance within sports is still something difficult. This is mainly because a certain image of a sporting man is portrayed. So I think it is very good and important that this will change. I see myself as an example for all young athletes with a different sexuality. It is important that regardless of who you are, what you look like, you can do what you like and that your environment accepts you for who you are!


The official running rules of World Athletics will apply for the Track & Field tournament.
