How To Watch Track & Field at the 2024 Summer Olympics

Track and field—or Athletics to non-Americans—gift us 12 days of action and 48 medal opportunities.

The 2024 Olympics in Paris, France, will host professional runners at the Stade de France, race walkers around the Trocadéro, and marathoners get the view of Les Invalides.

Team USA will compete in 48 athletic events from July 31 to August 11.

Although the Olympics will broadcast on NBC, USA Network, MSNBC, and CNBC, your favorite athlete may not be featured. So, if you want to stream multiple events, Peacock is the best option because you can watch all of them, including replays.

Chantel Buchi has seven years of experience covering sports in marketing and for Fansided, NFL Network, and the AAF. The NFL is her favorite league, but during the off-season, she’s excited to watch the Summer Olympic Games.

Reliable internet prevents lag during an event.

Team USA’s track and field athletes will be chosen in June

After the track and field Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon, on June 21–30, we’ll know who makes up our Team USA men’s team. Three athletes for each event will represent our country.

We’ll update this page daily with the TV schedule, so don’t forget to bookmark it to find out when Noah Lyles will be stepping onto the track.

If he, or another favorite Olympian of yours, happens to race while you’re asleep, you can stream it on Peacock in the morning while you’re drinking your coffee.

The women’s races could likely start with Sha’Carri Richardson winning

The women’s races kick off with the quick and intense 100-meter sprint, which is the specialty of one of our best runners, Sha’Carri Richardson.

Not only will I be watching Sha’Carri run the 100m, 200m, and relay races, but I’m also excited to watch the steeplechase race. What is that, you might ask? That’s what I wondered, and boy, did I learn something new.

The distance and hurdle races are straightforward, but tune in on August 4 and 6 to watch hurdlers clear seven jumps and land in a water pit throughout 3000m.

The Men’s decathlon takes place on August 2 and 3

The men’s decathlon is an all-around athletics test that consists of 10 track and field events where athletes compete to achieve the highest combined score.

The decathlon starts with the 100m run on Friday, August 2, early in the morning. But that’s OK because you can catch all of the events on Peacock. This streaming service will be a lifesaver because of the time difference between Paris and the U.S.

Women’s heptathlon

The all-around athletics test for women is called a heptathlon for the seven track and field events each woman will participate in. And the women’s heptathlon will begin with 100m hurdlers meeting at the starting line.

Most of Team USA’s star athletes compete in the sprints only (not in the heptathlon), but we can expect to see Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone and Athing Mu join Sha’Carri Richardson on the track in Paris.
