    I guess we have to thank Usain Bolt for all this coverage. Never before have we had this much track and field coverage on TV/cable in the United States. Usain brought track and field to the forefront at the Beijing Olympics to make such a deal (NBC/IAAF ) possible.


    As per the USTAF website, ESPN 2 is also scheduled to have US trials coverage on June 26 and 27 (8pm and 6pm respectively) which would either be live or same day tape delay coverage.

    As per the link on the front page, the Universal Sports website will provide live and on demand weekday coverage of the World Championships. NBC's coverage is only on the weekend.
