October 23, 2021

The sports year 2021 is an overview of events, results and deceased persons with connections to sports in 2021. The sports year was marked by a number of postponements from 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Among other things, the 2020 Summer Olympics were held in 2021, and some championships were moved to 2022 to avoid a collision with the Olympics, such as the World Championships in Athletics 2021.
