Schedule: World Athletics Championships 2013

Last updated on: August 05, 2013 16:21 IST

The 14th edition of the World Athletics Championships, which pits the world's best athletes against each other, will take place in Moscow from August 10 to 18.

However, the sport's biennial championships is in danger of losing its lustre following doping and injury-related withdrawals.

Olympic champion Usain Bolt will be the biggest attraction of the championships, also featuring the likes of American sprinter Allyson Felix, 20-year-old 400 metres sensation Kirani James, Britain's double Olympic distance gold medallist Mo Farah and Tirunesh Dibaba, also seeking the 5,000/10,000 double.
