Welcome to the early edition of FFAO, courtesy of 59 men who are racewalking 50km (37 miles) and therefore have to start at the crack of dawn in Tokyo! I thought I'd put up the live post now since evening Europeans and afternoon North/South Americans can actually watch this vs the middle of the night 20km racewalk, and then it'll lead right into our normal primetime slot and live events. Racewalking will be on NBCSN at 4:30pm EDT/1:30pm PDT and primetime coverage will begin on NBC at 8pm EDT, and the live events run from approx 5:30am-11pm JST, 9:30pm-3pm BST, 4:30pm-10am EDT, and 1:30pm-7am PDT.
