The inaugural IAAF World Relays gets under way on Saturday (24) in Nassau, The Bahamas, and you can follow all the action on the IAAF website.

The IAAF website will bring you live results, team standings, and up-to-the-minute updates on our live blog and IAAF twitter account.

Or if you’re on the go, you can download the IAAF app (available on Amazon appstore, Google Play or the App Store) to keep updated on all the results from Nassau.

The IAAF will also for the first time in its history stream one of its events via the following platforms:

In Europe, the stream is available via http://bit.ly/iaaflive and on the Eurovision Sports Live App (iOS and Android).

Furthermore, the IAAF, in partnership with Dentsu, who are the IAAF’s broadcasting partner for the rest of the world, will provide a stream on the ‘IAAF Magazine’ YouTube channel.

In addition, there will also be a 360° high-definition video feed, which allows the viewer to directly control what they want to view.

Following our event-by-event previews, there will also be reports for every event and a host of images added to the site.

If you can’t follow the action on TV, you can listen to the IAAF Radio throughout the competition.

SPIKES – through twitter, the IAAF World Athletics Club on Facebook, and their new home on the IAAF website – will add an extra dimension to the IAAF World Relays coverage, unearthing stories that you’d never hear anywhere else.

And there’s more.

You can follow your chosen country throughout the competition. Simply bookmark them, and then the tab along the top of every competition page will keep you updated on their progress.

In the athletes section, you can filter all the entrants by name, country, discipline or gender.

There’s also the IAAF World Relays facts and figures PDF, which contains all the relay-related information you will ever need to know.

If that’s still not quite enough information, you can download in-depth biographies – compiled by statistician Mark Butler – of all the athletes set to compete in Nassau.
