The World Athletics Championships will begin in London today. 25 Indian athletes are taking part in the ten days grand event. No Indian will be in action today. 

Experts are hoping a medal for India from world junior record holder javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra. Everything depends on this 19-year-old Haryana athlete's performance on whether India manages to put an end to the medal drought since 2003. 

India has taken part in every championships since the first one in 1983 but legendary long jumper Anju Bobby George's bronze in Paris 2003

has been the lone medal at this global stage. 

The star attraction at the World Athletics is the Jamaican Bolt, who has completed the 100m-200m sprint double at the past two World Championships, plans to compete in the 100m and 4x100m relay as he bids farewell to the sport.

Great Britain's Farah, who will switch to road racing next season, seeks to complete an unprecedented fifth double in the 5,000m and 10,000m, having won both titles at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, as well as at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships.
