World Para Athletics announced on Wednesday that the World Championships will be streamed at the official event website.

Every second of the action in London next month will be streamed live, so fans will not have to miss any of the action. That will see 213 medal events with 1300 athletes from 100 countries competing in what should be a phenomenal world championships.

Commentary will be provided by Will Downing and Tulsen Tollett both experienced commentators in various sports. The two will be joined by German long jumper Vanessa Low, who will be performing an analyst role, calling on her athletics experience.

The event is the first major athletics event since Rio 2016 where 69 world records were broken in a thrilling Paralympic Games. There could be even more records set in London, with athletes in phenomenal form in recent months breaking records all over Europe and the United States.

Being in the London 2012 stadium will bring back many memories for those competing but also those at home. It should be a phenomenal event, and the venue will help create a phenomenal viewing experience for those unable to make it to London.

The venue will have a similar technological set up to the main event five years ago which should make life easy for a quality broadcast. This will likely be the most advanced broadcast ever seen for a world para athletics championship, which often are stuck with smaller stadiums.

In total 54 hours will be streamed live by World Para Athletics and the organization will also put together daily highlights along with clips of every single event. Unfortunately coverage will be geoblocked in some countries where there is already a rights holder of the event. For those unable to stream live results will also be available on the website.
