Olympic Fever Returns

Mo Farah in action

Olympic fever is set to hit London again this weekend as the capital hosts the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will throw open its doors to the world's great athletes for the three day event starting today and concluding on Sunday with Paralympic action.

Usain Bolt, Mo Farah and David Weir are amongst the start lists for the weekend spectacular. Today, Jamaican Bolt will take part in the men's `100m on the same track where he electrified the world last summer. He will have Great Britain's latest sub-10 second 100m runner James Dasaolu amongst his opposition.

Double Olympic champion Farah will be one of Saturday's star attractions in the men's 3000m. More than a few Mo-bots are expected around the sold-out arena in tribute to one of Team GB's biggest heroes of London 2012. Weir will close the show on Sunday in the men's T54 wheelchair mile.

The first two days will be televised by BBC with Sunday's Paralympic action covered by Channel 4.
