Dear and Gentle readers,
On this, the eve of the greatest eight days of track und field every two years, I am wakeful in anticipation of how the races will go, who will win, who will surprise and if the line for my espresso and tomato juice will be too long.
Don’t fret dear readers! The IAAF, the governing body of the sport, has provided you, with a plethora of information to make your experience in Luzhniki stadium, or, if you are one of the lucky 150 million in the US who neither have Universal Sports access or who have been totally jerked around by the Peacock network, who would give more coverage to professional snipe hunting that they would to the world’s oldest (and to some, world’s only) true sport.
But, hey, I digressed. Enjoy the links below and remember to get up early (nine to eleven hours difference in USA), turn on the computer and watch as I pontificate on Live RunBlogRun, or read the thoughtful words of the six columnists we lined up. The links below will make you a track expert, the conversationalist at your next cocktail party, or, perhaps you could run for political office in the U.S. say the Whig party?
