Even in the final of the day, which did not involve the Italians, there was a show and there were emotions. With one big surprise: The U.S. didn’t win the 4×100 title, which went to Olympic runner-up Canada behind Italy. Like what happened in the same women’s race (no medal in the sprint) with the USA to mock Jamaica.

Oh, Canada

After a stellar performance in the 100 and 200 (a double hat-trick), it was believed that the hosts would not be able to escape the men’s fastest relay title. Instead, Canada celebrated with a 37” 48 (best world time trial of the year), 2/100ths better than Azzurri in Tokyo, despite plenty of fluid changes. Thanks to Brown, Blake, Rodney and a recovered and decisive De Grasse, the 8” was unleashed with a fraction of 79. The United States of Coleman, Lyles, Hall and Bracey are at 7/100. Bronze goes to Great Britain (Effologo, Hughes, Miktehl-Blake, Prescott) at 37”83. Thinking about the Europeans, note France’s disqualification, leaving the only other four from the old continent in the finals.

Kenyan gold

Finally a second gold for Kenya: thanks to Emmanuel Korir who won the 800s. The Olympic champion, anonymous throughout the season, has been tricky until 150 meters from the finish, then changed his own pace with wide strides. Also, with 1’43 “71 (52” 29/51 “42) puts everyone in line. Behind him is the Algerian Djamel Sedjati (1’44 “14), who is Jabir Said-Guerni (gold in Paris 2003 and bronze in Seville 1999) and Canadian Marco Arop (gold in 2003) brings his country back to the special stage after the glory. 1’44 “28), leading to the final straight. 17-year-old Emmanuel Wanyoni, another Kenyan, did not cease to amaze with an amazing fourth (1’44 ”54).

Grenadine spear

Grenadine Anderson Peters was confirmed as world champion in javelin. He clocked 90.21 in the first attempt, 90.46 in the second and closed the race, despite a series of setbacks. Even though it was as high as 90.54 in the last release. Only John Zelesny and Johannes Vetter have thrown it over 90 meters three times in the same race. The first undefeated Olympic champion was India’s Neeraj Chopra (4th 88.13), while Czech Jakub Vadlejch (3rd 88.09) won the bronze.

Finally Guttoff

Silver in the 1500 at the 2014 Junior World Championships at Hayward Field, bronze in the 1500 at the 2019 World Championships in Doha, bronze in the 5000 and silver in the 1500 at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and the Guda ban earlier in the week in Eugene and, after a race strategy in the first section, the title in the 5000. The final time (14’46” 29), the last 3000 of 8’38”, the last 1000 of 2’45” and a 59″ 9 of the last 400, which is little or nothing. On the other hand, success carries an enormous specific weight. Silver went to Kenya’s Beatrice Sebet (14’46” 75), while bronze went to Ethiopia’s David Seyam (14’47” 36). A third Ethiopian, Letensbet Gide, 10,000 gold (the fifth double in history for an African country) and world record holder, had to settle for fifth place, while Olympic champion Dutch Sifan Hassan, sixth. .
