One of the most-awaited sessions of the World Championships, including the final of the men's 100m, features on day two. Marcell Jacobs should be the European favourite, but he will have strong US opponents like the defending champion Fred Kerley. Also watch out for Botswana's world U20 record-holder Letsile Tebogo, who could make a breakthrough to become one of the world's top sprinters in Budapest. And don’t forget Noah Lyles, who is planning to run 9.65.
Bence Halasz in the men’s hammer throw final could create the most important Hungarian moment of the World Championships. Polish fans should also have the chance to cheer for Pawel Fajdek and Wojciech Nowicki. We will also see Anna Hall, who is chasing her first world title and the incredible 7000 points.
In the women's long jump final, Serbia's Ivana Vuleta, Nigeria’s Ese Brume, Ukraine's Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk, UK’s Jazmin Sawyers and Italy’s Larissa Iapichino.
Jakob Ingebrigtsen is on the stage in the heats of the Men’s 1500 metres. Joshua Cheptegei and Selemon Barega could make an unforgettable night to Uganda and Ethiopia with an extraordinary duel in the 10,000m final.
With the 100m, 1500m and 10,000m all on the programme, the best sprinters, middle distance runners and distance runners will all be on the track.
This day, 20 August, is a national holiday in Hungary, the celebration of the founding of the state. To mark the occasion there will be magnificent fireworks display over the Danube from 9pm. As a result, this session will start and finish earlier than on the other evenings.
