The first half of the championships has produced plenty of magical moments, including Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce becoming the first athlete to win five gold medals in an individual track World Athletics Championships event.

Elsewhere, US superstar Fred Kerley set the sixth-fastest 100m time ever in the heats (9.76) before going on to win gold, though Team GB know they must step up their efforts in the coming days.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland are currently sitting in 19th place with just one medal, courtesy of a bronze medal from Laura Muir.

With the Championships being held in Oregon, the USA have pulled out all the stops and currently top the medal table with 16 medals, including six golds.

RadioTimes.com brings you all the details about how to watch the World Athletics Championships live on TV in 2022.

When is the World Athletics Championships?

The World Athletics Championships began on Friday 15th July 2022 with 10 days packed full of action.

The championships run until Sunday 24th July 2022 when athletes pack up and depart Oregon, many of whom will have the Commonwealth Games on their mind.

World Athletics Championships on TV and live stream

The BBC will broadcast of all the action across its terrestrial TV and online platforms with a wealth of live coverage to soak up.

BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three and BBC Four will all boast some coverage throughout the events, while you should also check out the BBC Red Button for more drama.

Every moment of the action live on TV will also make its way to BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website. The time difference could make some events tricky to enjoy, so the online platforms will be crucial for on-demand replays.
