The 2015 IAAF World Championships kick off this weekend and will provide a venue for the world's best to go head-to-head in a championship setting before the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. From Usain Bolt in the 100-meters to Dennis Kimetto in the marathon, Beijing is expected to host fast times and eyebrow-raising performances. 

The championships start on Aug. 22 and run through Aug. 30.
