What's On: Day 1

The track competition gets underway tomorrow evening. While you're messing around with your picks for the Track & Field News prediction contests, I'll be off at Kelleys Island for my last-day-of-summer blowout. (If you've never been to the Lake Erie Islands, they are the Great Lakes' answer to the Florida Keys, with Kelleys taking the place of Big Pine.) So I'm putting up my daily preview now.

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.

NBC coverage: 11 a.m.-noon (men's 100 heats/quarters), 8 p.m.-midnite (mens shot put), and 12:30-2 a.m. (women's 10k).

Highlights (with links to start lists):
SI's Tim Layden has a new article on 100 underdog Asafa Powell.
