De Grasse is decisive and the North American team has outdone the top candidates. Among women, the victory of the United States over Jamaica
& commat; abuongi
Even in today’s finals where the Italians do not participate, there is a show and there is emotion. With a big surprise: the US didn’t win the 4×100 title which goes to Canada’s vice-Olympic champion behind Italy. A bit like what happened in the same women’s race with the US (without a medal in the sprint) to make fun of Jamaica.
After what was seen in the 100 and 200 (a double hat-trick), it was believed that the hosts could not escape the men’s sprint relay title. Instead, despite fluid enough changes, Canada celebrates, with a 37″ 48 (best world time experience of the year), 2/100 better than the Azzurri in Tokyo. Thanks to Brown, Blake, Rodney, and a recovering and decisive De Grasse, they unleashed a breakout 8″ 79. US Coleman, Liz, Hall and Brassie stayed at 7/100. Bronze went to Great Britain (Efoloko, Hughes, Mictehll-Blake, Prescod) at 37″ 83. Thinking of the Europeans, note France’s elimination, only another quartet from the Old Continent is present in the final.
Finally Kenya’s second gold: thanks to Emmanuel Currier, winner of the 80s. The Olympic champion, unknown all season, 150 meters from the finish and then, imposing strides, changed his pace. With a 1’43” 71 (52″ 29/51″ 42) he puts everyone in line. Behind him is Algeria’s Djamel Sajati (1’44” 14) who brought his country back to the podium after the glories of Jaber Said Girne (gold in Paris 2003 and bronze in Seville 1999 ) and Canadian Marco Arup (1’44” 28), leading entry to the final straight. 17-year-old Emmanuel Wanyone, another Kenyan, never stops impressing, he’s an impressive fourth (1’44” 54).
In the javelin throw, Grenadine Anderson Peters was confirmed as the world champion. On the first try, he made a 90.21, on the second try 90.46, and despite several successive jerks, he shut out the race. Even if at the last launch it exceeded as much as 90.54. Only the greats Jan Zelezny and Johannes Vetter, in their position, managed to throw it three times over 90 meters in the same race. The first defeated Olympic champion, India’s Neeraj Chopra (88.13 in fourth place), while Czech bronze Jakub Vadelic (88.09 in third place).
Silver 1500 at the 2014 World Junior Championships at Hayward Field, Bronze over 1500 at the World Championships Doha 2019, Bronze over 5000 at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and Silver 1500 at the start of the week in Eugene: Godav Tsegae breaks down from taboo, after racing tactics in Part One, celebrates With a 5,000 title. The last time (14’46″29), so with the last 3,000 of 8’38”, the last 1,000 of 2’45” and the last 400 of 59″9, she says little or nothing. Success, on the other hand, has tremendous special weight. Silver went to Kenyan Beatrice Chebet (14’46” 75), bronze to another Ethiopian, Dawit Seyoum (14’47” 36). Letensbet Gidey, the third Ethiopian, gold medalist in the 10,000 (for an African country it is a double fifth in history) and world record holder in the discipline, should be satisfied with fifth, Dutch Olympic champion Sivan Hasan, from sixth.
Before the 400, the fifth and final event of the day, Canadian Olympic champion Damien Warner led. Which, however, comes off the first corner, collapsing with a hamstring problem. Inevitable withdrawal. And so, halfway through, Puerto Rican Aiden Owens (4606 points) was up front, in the 400-giant 45-inch 07 ahead of Canadian Pierce Lepage (4485) and American Zachary Zemick (4469).
