Race walk in the Diamond League today !

In case you hadn’t heard – there is a men’s one mile race walk event in today’s Diamond League meeting in London. A lot of young British athletes in the field, and the race is scheduled for a 12:50 start. Coverage of the whole event starts on BBC2 at 12:15, and I believe Tom Bosworth has been interviewed by Steve Cram so there must be a good chance that they are panning to show it !
