Delivering the very best athletics to audiences around the country, Eurosport have committed to broadcasting every session live and in full to ensure unrivalled access to the feats of Team Australia for fans of athletics.

Athletics Australia’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, Michael Hall, believes the broadcast is a catalyst for promoting athletics in Australia.

“Eurosport have for many years been committed to the coverage of athletics, with the IAAF Diamond League, the World University Games and now the IAAF World Championships among the many athletics events you can enjoy on the network in 2017,” Hall said.

“This commitment is a great result for athletics in Australia. It ensures that people across the country have the opportunity to witness the outstanding performances of remarkable athletes, building our fan base as we approach the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games next year.”

“Athletics at its best is one of the most engaging and entertaining sports in the world and we are confident you’ll be enthralled by the action at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.”

Eurosport has made an extensive commitment to their coverage of athletics on Subscription Television as the Australian broadcaster of the IAAF Diamond League, the World University Games and international marathons from around the globe.

"Eurosport is the home of athletics in Australia and we’re proud to once again be offering unrivalled coverage of the IAAF World Championships,” Jonathan Rudd, Vice President Programming & Production, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific – Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands, said.

“As the world’s best track and field athletes descend on London, viewers won’t miss a minute of the action and will be able to closely follow our Aussie team throughout the competition with all events live.”

The IAAF World Championships are the pinnacle able-bodied athletics event this year, with athletes from across the world to battle it out for the coveted title of world champion.

Team Australia will compete alongside athletes from more than 200 nations at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, marking a return of competition to the same stadium that welcomed the Olympic Games in 2012.
