Athing Mu was tested in the women's 800m at the USATF Outdoor Championships, and the Olympic champion responded, finding an extra gear at the finish to hold off Ajee Wilson by .07 seconds.

Full coverage of the 2022 World Track & Field Championships will be presented across NBCUniversal’s television networks and digital platforms. The event runs from July 15-24 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, as the U.S. plays host to the outdoor championships for the first time.

NBC Sports will broadcast 43 hours from Eugene, with live afternoon and primetime shows both weekends, highlighted by the men’s and women’s 100m finals (July 16-17) and 4x100m and 4x400m relays (July 23-24). Additional television coverage will air on USA Network and CNBC (channel finder here); see below for details.

One of the marquee events is the women’s 800m, with a strong American field led by Athing Mu. Last summer in Tokyo, Mu became the first Olympic gold medalist for the U.S. in the women’s 800m in 53 years. She will be chasing history once again at worlds as the U.S. women have never won a world title in the 800m.
