Our preview will be similar to the ones produced for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the 2012 Olympics in London and the IAAF World Track & Field Championships—it will be in a .pdf file that you can download and have by your side while watching on TV or on various internet platforms, including desktop & mobile devices.
To whet your interest, here’s a link to the IAAF’s Olympic stats book, which is the most extensive book covering the track & field competition.
