MONACO (AP) The IAAF has confirmed that three cities in the United States, Spain and Qatar are in the running to host the 2019 world championships.

The IAAF says Tuesday it has received formal applications from Eugene, Oregon; Barcelona; and Doha. The cities sent letters of intent earlier this year.

Eugene is bidding to bring track and field's showcase event to the United States for the first time.

The host city will be selected at the IAAF council meeting in Monaco on Nov. 18.

An IAAF evaluation panel headed by Sebastian Coe will visit the three cities this month.

The world championships are held every two years. Beijing will host the event in 2015 and London in 2017.
