Live streaming of the 2016 Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays will be available on the Longhorn Network for the fifth consecutive year, organizers confirmed on Tuesday.
The notable outdoor meeting, which is acting as season openers for several athletes, will again showcase another strong selection of international athletes, who have either won medals or participated at the world championships and Olympic Games.
This year, Texas Relays will give athletes the perfect opportunity to stage their credentials ahead to the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games.
According to meeting organizers, “Longhorn Network will provide four days of intensive coverage” with the opening day of coverage getting under way on Wednesday, March 30 and concluding on Saturday, April 2.
The Longhorn Network’s 14-hours of coverage will include action in the collegiate and professional competition, organizers said, which will come from the women’s heptathlon, men’s decathlon, sprints, hurdles, long distance, and field events.
