The wait is over. Tomorrow the biggest meet of the year begins – the World Championships. Start lists are now up. Television schedule and internet links are listed on the right of this blog. The schedule for the opening day is listed below.

There will be two finals tomorrow – Men’s Shot Put and Women’s 10,000. American’s have a chance to gain medals right off the bat in the Shot with Reese Hoffa, Christian Cantwell, and Dan Taylor being three of the top four throwers this year. Shot leaders.

Top American hopes in the 10,000 will be Amy Begley Yoder and Shalane Flanagan. 10,000 leaders.

Opening day will also feature the heats and quarterfinals of what should be one of the highlights of the meet – the men’s 100 meters. The US will be lead by defending champion Tyson Gay as he attempts to defend against Olympic champion Usain Bolt (JAM). The US will also be represented by Mike Rodgers, Darvis Patton and Rae Edwards. 100 leaders.

A great way to start the weekend!
