London Anniversary Games: Live Stream

Usain Bolt lived up to the hype at day one of the London Anniversary Games, and day two is set to be a cracker.

Rudisha takes on Amos over 800m, Sub-44 400m guys Makwala and Van Niekerk do battle over one lap, while Christian Taylor takes on Greg Rutherford in the long jump. Valerie Adams will continue her comeback from elbow surgery as she goes in the women’s shot put, the women’s 800m will see a loaded field including Euro indoor champion Selina Buchel, and all the heavy-hitters will do battle in the women’s 100m. Oh, and there’s the Emsley Carr mile featuring Kiprop, Souleiman, Centrowitz, Manzano, Blankenship…it will be quick.

There are three Irish athletes scheduled to compete. Mary Cullen lines up in the women’s 5000m (15:15), looking to book her spot in Beijing, with 15:20.00 the target time. Mark English faces one of the strongest 800m fields of his career (16:23), while Thomas Barr is due to occupy lane three of the men’s 400m hurdles (15:38).

You can watch all the action live on BBC 1 from 14:20 or via the stream below. The day’s timetable is below the stream and live results can be found here.
