British broadcaster Channel 4 will bring live coverage and highlights of the Müller Anniversary Games – which is part of the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final – to be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, Great Britain.

Live coverage will begin on Saturday (23 July) from 11:45 am – 2:15 pm (GMT), and can also be watched live on More 4.

Then on Sunday (24 July), Channel 4 will air highlights from the Anniversary Games from 3:45 pm – 4:00 pm after the Hungarian Formula One Grand Prix.

The Anniversary Games will be the last chance for fans to catch Great Britain’s track and field stars in action before heading off to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

British stars competing include Paralympic and world champions Richard Whitehead, Jonnie Peacock, David Weir, Dan Greaves, Hannah Cockroft, Georgie Hermitage, as well as rising athletes Jade Jones and Libby Clegg. They will be joined by a host of international stars.

Both programmes will be hosted by Sophie Morgan and JJ Chalmers. Iwan Thomas will be trackside with Danny Crates and Stef Reid as expert pundits in the studio. The experienced Channel 4 commentary team of John Rawling, Rob Walker and Katharine Merry will again take viewers through the action.

Clips of the live action will be available at and pushed out via @C4Paralympics on Twitter and C4Paralympics on Facebook.

The Anniversary Games is a combined able-bodied and Para sport event, merging the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Diamond League meeting on Friday and Saturday with the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final on Saturday.
