Busy day to be a Badger


Live Video: NCAA Championships  |  adidas Grand Prix

There are major track and field competitions taking place on both U.S.coasts on Saturday, and Wisconsin athletes past, present and future will be well-represented.

First, seniors Jack Bolas and Craig Miller will race for a national title -- and in Miller's case an eighth-career All-America honor -- in the final of the men's 1,500 meters at the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.

That race goes off at 12:30 p.m. (CT), with CBS carrying the event live. You can also watch a free live webstream.

Later this afternoon, you have the latest IAAF Diamond League event, the adidas Grand Prix, set to begin at 3 p.m. in New York. Look for former Badgers Matt Tegenkamp and Evan Jager to make their season debuts in a star-studded 1,500 meters field.

The adidas Grand Prix will air live on NBC and is also available online via webstream from Universal Sports, for a cost of $1.99.

Also competing at Ichan Stadium in New York is incoming Badgers freshman Emily Sisson, who is racing in the Jim Ryun High School Dream Mile. The all-star race is scheduled to go off at 5:22 p.m., as part of the adidas Grand Prix.
