Doha World athletics champs preview podcast

The LRC crew is on the plane to the World Track and Field / Athletics Championships in Doha.

You can enter the $200,019 Running Warehouse Worlds Prediction Contest here: https://www.letsrun.com/news/2019/09/2019-worlds-track-field-athletics-contest/

The LetsRun team breaks down the World Champs with an emphasis on the action the first 4 days. Will Christian Coleman be the fastest man in the world? Can Ajee Wilson handle the pressure of being the biggest women’s favorite? Should Jakob Ingebrigtsen be the betting favorite in the 5,000? What chances do Courtney Frerichs and Colleen Quigley have for steeple gold? Will Karsten Warholm, Rai Benjamin or Samba triumph in the 400m hurdles? Who you got Shelly Ann Frase Pryce or Elaine Thompson in 100?
