With this episode, Johanna Gretschel (@jojo_shea) and I get together to preview and predict the World Track Championships coming up from Friday, 9/27 through Sunday, October 6th in Doha, Qatar.
We will split this preview into 2 parts, starting with distance finals for the first 6 distance events Friday through Tuesday. Then next week, we will recap the events so far and preview the final 6 events which will be taking place Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 6th.
In this episode, you can get our thoughts on the women's marathon, men's & women's 800m, women's steeple, men's 5K, and the women's 10K. Who will medal? Where do the US athletes have the best chance? Can Emma Coburn repeat as champion? And who predicts a US sweep in the women's 800?!?
You can catch all of the action in the US on NBC and its affiliates. You can find the schedule and more info here:
The first event starts at midnight in Doha (5 pm EST) THIS Friday. Listen in. Watch. Be a fan.
