Note that NBC will tape-delay everything save the marathons. So if you want it live, your options are the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. if you're lucky enough to live close to the border (as I do), or online viewing via their website or Eurovision's (it you're not blocked). The IAAF will also have a live blog.
