NBC, NBCSN and Olympic Channel combine to air live daily coverage of the world track and field championships in Doha starting Friday.
In addition, NBC Sports Gold streams live coverage of every event over the 10-day meet.
The U.S., which more than doubled the next-best nation in medals at the Rio Olympics and 2017 Worlds in London, once again boasts a roster full of favorites at the first global championship in the post-Usain Bolt era.
Americans are the fastest qualifiers in one gender or the other in every track event from 100m through 800m. They also have reigning Olympic or world champions at 1500m, the 3000m steeplechase, the pole vault, shot put, long jump and triple jump.
Christian Coleman, the world’s fastest man every year of this Olympic cycle, gets things started as the 100m favorite over the meet’s first two days. Later, he is slated to face off against the world’s top 200m runner, Noah Lyles, then join Lyles on the 4x100m.
Another U.S. head-to-head is expected in the women’s 400m hurdles in week two between Olympic champion and world-record holder Dalilah Muhammad and 20-year-old phenom Sydney McLaughlin.
Then there’s the most decorated female track and field athlete in history, 25-time Olympic and world medalist Allyson Felix, expected to be part of the 4x400m on the last weekend of competition in her ninth world championships and first as a mom.
