Athletics on the BBC: Diamond League, World Championships

The BBC has extensive live athletics coverage in 2015 across TV, desktop, mobile, tablet and app, including the 2015 World Championships.

In addition, the BBC has signed a deal to show the entire Diamond League season on network TV, with highlights from the 12 international events.

The deal sees BBC Sport bring more hours of network TV coverage of the Diamond League than ever before across BBC One and BBC Two, and runs through to 2017.

The BBC has a separate deal for live coverage of the two UK Diamond League events in Birmingham (7 June) and the Anniversary Games in London (24 & 25 July) which runs through to 2020.

Diamond League - Rome highlights

Saturday 6 June

13:00-14:00, BBC One

Gabby Logan introduces highlights from Rome's Olympic Stadium, where more than 40 Olympic or world medallists are competing in the fourth leg of the 2015 Diamond League series.

The stellar names are expected to include Olympic champion and world record holder Renaud Lavillenie in the men's pole vault, while women's sprint hurdles world champion Brianna Rollins take on the last two Olympic champions, Dawn Harper-Nelson and Sally Pearson, and US sprinter Justin Gatlin is vying to win the 100m in Rome for the third straight year.

Diamond League - Birmingham Grand Prix

Sunday 7 June 2015

1330-1715, BBC Two

Gabby Logan presents live coverage of the Birmingham Grand Prix, with Mo Farah and David Rudisha heading a world-class field.

Double Olympic, world and European champion Farah is stepping down to 1500m for the first time since breaking the British record two years ago. He has been victorious in each of the past four years at this meeting but will need to be at his best to beat some of the world's finest middle-distance runners.

Olympic, European and Commonwealth long jump gold medallist Greg Rutherford and world 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu are also among a stellar British contingent, while men's 800m Olympic champion and world record holder Rudisha returns to Alexander Stadium, having won the little-run 600m last year.
