Fan’s Daily Viewing Guide & Preview of the World Athletics / Track and Field Championships
updated July 22, 2022
The World Track and Field Championships are underway for the first time on American soil. They started Friday, July 15 in Eugene, Oregon, and end on Sunday, July 24.
We’ve got our detailed event previews here, TV guide here, schedule and results here, but want to give a daily guide to what is going on for the more casual fan who might have a job and a family and can’t watch it 24/7. Each day, we’ll update this page and we’ll have a brief overview of the key events and tell you where you can watch them.

United States TV & Streaming- Prime Time for 10 days – 8/9pm – 11 pm eastern
NBC owns the rights to Worlds in the US so everything will be on an NBC property. On your phone that means having the Peacock App if you don’t want to miss anything. On TV, the action will be split between the USA, CNBC, and NBC networks with the weekend primetime action being on NBC.
Sounds confusing, but we have detailed TV info here, but just remember you can watch great track and field from 9 p.m. -11 p.m. Eastern every night (Monday and Tuesday night 7/18 and 7/19 the coverage is live on Peacock. You can watch on demand on TV) . If you just watch that, you’ll do pretty good.

Sunday- Worlds Conclude with a Bang, Can the US women sweep the 800? LOADED Men’s 5,000m final, 4×400 Finals, More
All good things must come to an end including the 2022 World Championships. The good thing is the final day of Worlds is loaded. From a distance perspective the US had 0 medals so far, but could go 1-2-3 in the women’s 800, where they are led by Olympic Champ Athing Mu, but also have hometown hero Raevyn Rogers (whose image is on the tower at Hayward Field), and the always in contention Ajee’ Wilson, who won World Indoors this year.
Before that is the men’s 5,000m which has the mid-d guys, meeting the long-distance guys, as World record holder and Olympic champ Joshua Cheptegei, the winner of the 5,000m, takes on 1500m runner-up Jakob Ingebrigtsen. Could American Grant Fisher contend for a medal?
We also have a great women’s 100m hurdles where Jasmine Camacho-Quinn the Olympic champ takes on world record holder Kendra Harrison, plus the end of the the decathlon, Mondo Duplantis in the pole vault, and the 4x400s.
