Leave a comment

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.

World champion, Olympic medalist to miss 1500m at track worlds

Reigning world champion Elijah Manangoi and two-time Olympic medalist Nick Willis will be absent from the 1500m at the world track and field championships that start next week in Doha.

The Kenyan Manangoi is out with a reported ankle injury.

Willis, the 2008 Olympic silver medalist and 2016 Olympic bronze medalist from New Zealand, will miss worlds for the first time since 2009 after not receiving an invitation from the IAAF, according to New Zealand’s track federation. The 36-year-old did not run a fast enough time this year to qualify outright and was not ranked high enough to receive any extra spots awarded by the IAAF in the 1500m.

Kenya is still favored to win despite lacking Manangoi and the suspended Asbel Kiprop, who won three straight world titles from 2011-15.

That’s because of Timothy Cheruiyot, the 2017 World silver medalist who lost just three times over the last two years, taking second to Manangoi in each instance, according to Tilastopaja.org.

The U.S. contingent at worlds is led by Matthew Centrowitz, who in Rio became the first U.S. Olympic 1500m champion in 108 years.

Veterans Allyson Felix and Justin Gatlin and rising stars Christian ColemaenNoah Lyles and Michael Norman headline the U.S. roster for the world track and field championships that start next week.

While most athletes clinched spots at the USATF Outdoor Championships in July, the roster could not be completed until after the Diamond League season concluded two weeks ago. Diamond League Finals champions, in some cases, picked up extra roster spots for the U.S.

The U.S. has the fastest man in the 100m, 200m and 400m this year in Coleman, Lyles and Norman, plus the Diamond League 800m champion in Donavan Brazier.

Felix, coming back from November childbirth, will compete at a ninth worlds, breaking the U.S. record she shared with high jumper Amy Acuff. Felix was sixth in the 400m at nationals, putting her on the team for relays only.

Blake Leeper, the Paralympian who placed fifth in the men’s 400m, is not on the team. Leeper’s prosthetics have not been cleared by the IAAF for competition against able-bodied runners.
