Red face Eurosport coverage is terrible !

In the first week they will only start at 10.30 PM because of Athletics WC.

I'm interested in the WC as well, but in Germany we have full coverage of it anyway in ARD/ZDF, so it's wasted time on Eurosport.

I hate this coverage (eventhough I like athletics, but they will be already covered on so many other channels ...).

When is the final (women) supposed to be? Because I can't find it live on Eurosport schedule, only taped.

From the US open site

The ladies final will "Saturday, September 6 at 8 p.m EST" which I think means it will be 01:00 in the UK and 02:00 in mainland Europe.

This is one hour earlier than last year to put it on prime time TV in the USA.

I'll only watch the athletics until the tennis coverage starts on Sky.

how can they show the boring Athletics WC?

this is full bullshit

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I think rtl 5 will show the whole tournament live and if they threat it the same as they did with wimbledon then I am more then satisfied

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Wow the 2 best sports clashing I'll have to cut 10 secs out of Amélies matches if they interfere with Miss Merlene Otteys races - she's only the oldest ever World Athletics Championships participant at 43! *soon to be oldest medalist too*

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
