Epic Carnival | Where Sports and Pop Culture Collide: Top Five Reasons You Should Watch the World Athletics Championships

Top Five Reasons You Should Watch the World Athletics Championships

by Sanchez, Shot To Nothing

The World Athletics Champs kick off at the end of August and even if you're not a big Track and Field fan, these five things alone should keep you very happy.

5. Two people have been speared by Javelins this year and all things happen in threes. Who will be the next target? (an excellent sweepstakes opportunity btw)

4. You can play "Guess The Gender" during the Women's hammert throw. This game is fun for all the family.

3. The hot chicks in lycra. Ok there aren't many of them, but keep your eyes peeled for the diamonds in the er... rough.

2. There are two big time world records that are in danger of falling. Jeremy Wariner is getting closer and closer to Michael Johnson's 400m W.R. and in the 100m there are two guys who easily have the record within their reach.

1. The 'Big Race'. Asafa Powell vs. Tyson Gay is the match-up Track fans have been waiting for all year. Whoever wins can justifiably claim the title of 'World's Fastest Man'. Has Gay got what it takes to beat the unbeatable Powell? Will Powell choke again under the intense pressure? The suspense will be incredible and it will all be over in under ten seconds.
