Usain Bolt. Justin Gatlin. Mo Farah. Ashton Eaton. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. There will be no shortage of stars present when the 2015 IAAF World Championships take place at the Beijing National Stadium over the next 10 days.
The World Championships are as close as fans are going to get to a real-life preview of the 2016 Olympics, so it would be a mistake to miss any of the action. Because of the time difference, many of the events will be taking place early in the morning in the United States (click here for a full schedule of events). Fortunately, there will be steady coverage both on TV and online.
Here’s a look at when and where to watch:
