The Weekend Ahead

The Aviva London Grand Prix, a Diamond League meet, will take place at the Crystal Palace stadium on Friday and Saturday. 

Featured races inlcude Tyson Gay versus Walter Dix over 100 meters and Bernard Lagat versus Mo Farah and Galen Rupp over 3000 meters, although I think the men's 400 meters may be the most interesting of them all.

A big medal haul at the Euros has paid off, as both days of the meet sold out well in advance.

Live webcasts will be at 2 PM Friday and 9:30 AM Saturday at, and at 2 PM Friday and 10:30 AM Saturday at

Tape-delay TV coverage will be at 10:30 PM Friday and 5 PM Saturday on Universal Sports, and at 2 PM Saturday on CBC.
