Universal Sports to Provide LIVE Broadcast of Stockholm, London and Monaco Super Grand Prix Series

Watch Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell today in 100m at IAAF DN Galan in Stockholm, Sweden.

Universal Sports, formerly World Championship Sports Network, will provide LIVE broadcasts of three consecutive Super Grand Prix Series status meeting events - from Stockholm, London and Monaco - as part of its 2008 IAAF World Athletics Tour coverage.

Kicking off today with the Stockholm DN Galan fans can tune in to watch 100m world-record holder Usain Bolt compete against fellow Jamaican and former world-record holder Asafa Powell. The action continues with the Aviva London Grand Prix this Friday and Saturday where the highly anticipated 100m race between America's world champion, Tyson Gay and Jamaican rival Asafa Powell will be held on Friday. Joining Gay and Powell in London will be Usain Bolt, who will be competing in his preferred distance, the 200m.

On July 29 the Herculis Super Grand Prix in Monaco offers the last chance for track and field athletes to fine-tune their talents in competition before the Beijing games. Over these next three competitions, fans will be treated to twice the amount of talent and heart pounding action as top athletes from across the globe come together to compete in one of the most important race series before the Summer Olympics.

Universal Sports will be broadcasting LIVE coverage of these Super Grand Prix events on its 24/7 television network. Fans can also logon to www.wcsn.com to catch a live webcast of the Aviva London Grand Prix and same day-delay coverage of the DN Galan and Herculis Super Grand Prix's (UniversalSports.com website to launch later this summer).
