Athletics: Indoor Championships

Friday 3 March



Steve Cram introduces live coverage of the opening session of the European Athletics Indoor Championships from Belgrade in Serbia.

Day one sees the action begin with a busy morning of events. Amongst those is round one of the women’s 60m hurdles, in which Great Britain enjoyed surprise success in back in 2015 when Lucy Hatton won silver and Serita Solomon bronze. Their team-mate Katarina Johnson-Thompson took pentathlon gold in those Championships in Prague two years ago, and that event starts with the 60m hurdles.

The men’s long jump qualification also takes place, as well as the men’s and women’s 400m heats. Commentary and analysis comes from Steve, Andrew Cotter, Steve Backley, Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis, and Paula Radcliffe.

Live coverage continues on the BBC Red Button until 1300 and then again on BBC Two from 1500-1930.
