World Athletics Championships 2017
Following on from the success of the 2012 Olympic Games, London is again the host city as the world’s greatest track and field athletes gather for the World Athletics Championships.
In this special preview show, Gabby Logan is joined by Michael Johnson, Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis and Paula Radcliffe who will look ahead to 10 days of top class competition which includes the final appearance of the greatest sprinter of all time, Jamaica’s Usain Bolt. The eight-time Olympic champion and fastest man on the planet goes for glory in the 100m and the 4x100m relay – and he’ll hope to end his career on a high by bringing down his record-breaking career in style. Other superstars on show include Britain’s greatest ever distance runner Mo Farah, who will attempt to add to his historic ‘quad-double’ in the 5000m and 10,000m after winning both races at London 2012, the 2013 and 2015 World Championships and 2016 Rio Olympics. In this programme, Gabby and guests will look ahead to all the major events, the chances of the Great Britain team and the big international stars who are all hoping to win gold.
