In an exciting new initiative all the action from the 23rd IAAF World Race Walking Cup in Cheboksary, Russia, 10-11 May will be broadcast via a LIVE audio/visual stream during the two days of competition.

This is the first time that video coverage of an IAAF World Athletics Series event has been broadcast LIVE over the internet. This new project forms part of the IAAF’s development policy for its website and the obvious desire to enhance the coverage of its premier series of competitions. For this first experiment the stream will ONLY be available to European territories and will be geo-blocked to the rest of the world.

The audio/visual stream will be provided with an English Language commentary and will be accessible during competition times by clicking on the banner on the home page of the Cheboksary 2008 website -

Format: Windows Media, so it can be accessed with a standard Windows Media Player

Competition Timetable (Cheboksary is GMT +4hrs)

Access to stream (During competition times only)
