2019 World Track and Field Championships Week set for Olympic Channel

The 2019 World Track and Field Championships launch an 11-week series of 2019 World Championships Weeks on Olympic Channel on Monday, highlighting competition across Olympic and Paralympic sports.

Next week’s coverage includes 50 hours of programming from the track and field worlds, held in Doha last September and October. All coverage will stream on and the NBC Sports app for subscribers.

At the meet, the U.S. earned 14 gold medals (tying its record) and 29 total medals, a promising sign for success at the first post-Usain Bolt Olympics in Tokyo.

American stars included veterans — Allyson Felix broke her tie with Bolt for most career world titles, Dalilah Muhammad lowered her 400m hurdles world record and Christian Taylor earned his sixth global triple jump title.
