Day 10, July 24

Athing Mu continues her reign

In an epic battle against Great Britain’s Keely Hodgkinson, Athing Mu continued her years-long winning streak to become the first American woman to win a world title in the 800 meters.

Mu ran a comfortable 57.16 for the first 400 meters, then took the lead from Ethiopia’s Diribe Welteji; Hodgkinson covered the move.

And while Mu’s victories often look effortless, Hodgkinson challenged the Olympic gold medalist, passing Mu for a nearly imperceptible moment on the inside at around the 700-meter mark.

Mu, the effort visible on her face, didn’t let Hodgkinson—the Olympic silver medalist—get away with it. She squeezed back, blocking Hodgkinson from advancing again and winning in a world-leading 1:56.30. Hodgkinson took silver in a season’s-best 1:56.38.

Mary Moraa of Kenya won bronze in a personal-best 1:56.71. Olympic bronze medalist Raevyn Rogers took sixth in 1:58.26, and Ajeé Wilson faded to eight, finishing in 2:00.19.

The home team wins gold in both 4 x 400 relays

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (1)

Team USA closed out the first-ever world championships on home soil with a bang, with both the men and women winning the 4 x 400-meter relay in dominant fashion.

The American men—Elija Godwin, Michael Norman, Bryce Deadmon, and Champion Allison—took the lead early and never let up.

Norman, who just won the 400-meter championship, ran the second and fastest leg in 43.64. All the men’s handoffs were smooth, and their finishing time was a world-leading 2:56.17—more than two seconds faster than Jamaica, who took silver in 2:58.58. Bronze went to Belgium.

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (2)

The women’s race started out closer, with Talitha Diggs finishing the first leg just tenths of a second ahead of Jamaica’s Victoria Ohuruogu and Great Britain’s Nicole Yeargin.

But once Abby Steiner—who stepped up to take the second leg after Dalilah Muhammad sustained an injury—received the baton, the Americans’ lead extended. A strong third leg from Britton Wilson and a jaw-dropping 47.91 in the anchor leg from Sydney McLaughlin powered the women to a world-leading 3:17.79, the fastest time run on U.S. soil. Jamaica took silver in 3:20.74, and Great Britain claimed bronze in 3:22.64.

The wins lift the United States to a record-setting 33 medals, more than the 31 claimed by East Germany in 1987.

Mondo, once again, rises above the rest

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (3)

If there was one athlete viewed as a lock to win gold at this meet, it was Sweden’s Mondo Duplantis, already the world record holder and Olympic champion in the pole vault.

Duplantis did not disappoint, and after securing his gold medal, comfortably cleared 6.21 meters on his second attempt to set a world record, exceeding his previous outdoor best of 6.16, set just last month, and the world record of 6.20 he set indoors in March.

Team USA’s Olympic silver medalist Chris Nilsen cleared 5.94 meters on the first try for silver, and the Philippines’ Ernest John Obiena cleared the same height on his second attempt for bronze.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen bounces back to win the men’s 5,000 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (4)

Hydration tables are more common in mass marathons than world championship finals. But on a hot night in Eugene, Norway’s Jakob Ingebrigtsen grabbed a cup with about five and a half laps to go in the men’s 5,000 meters—then went on to win gold, in 13:09.24.

Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda, who won gold in the 10,000 meters a week ago, took the race out relatively quickly, covering the first 1,000 meters in 2:36.59. The Kenyan duo of Jacob Krop and Nicholas Kipkorir moved to the lead with about nine laps to go, then slowed the pace.

Ingebrigtsen, who was a surprise second to Jake Wightman in the 1500 meters earlier in the week, moved into the lead just past the 4,000-meter mark. About 10 men jostled for position into the bell lap. But Ingebrigtsen continued pushing and finished with a commanding lead—silver medalist Krop crossed the line in 13:09.98, and Uganda’s Oscar Chelimo was third in a season’s-best 13:10.20.

American Grant Fisher was in medal position until the final turn, when he stumbled and fell back after appearing to hit the rail. A few days after finishing fourth in the 10,000 meters, he wound up sixth in 13:11.65.

Northern Arizona University graduate Luis Grijalva, who runs for Guatemala, placed fourth in a season’s best 13:10.44.

Another day, another world record in the hurdles

Tobi Amusan of Nigeria had a very good day. Hours after setting a new world record in the semifinals of the women’s 100-meter hurdles—she ran 12.12 in the first heat, bettering American Keni Harrison’s 2016 mark by .08 seconds—she became the world champion in the event, winning the final in 12.06 (with wind of +2.5 m/s).

It was Amusan’s first global title, after finishing fourth in both the Tokyo Olympics and the 2019 World Championships in Doha.

Jamaica’s Britany Anderson took silver, while Olympic gold medalist Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico—the pre-race favorite—took bronze. Defending champion Nia Ali of Team USA, returning after the birth of her second child, took a heartbreaking fall in the preliminary round and did not advance to the semi-finals.

Day 9, July 23

U.S. wins women’s 4 x 100-meter relay, men settle for silver

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (5)

American track and field fans felt mixed emotions for the 4 x 100-meter relays that closed out the night of competition on Saturday.

First, it was joy for the home crowd, as the U.S. women claimed gold in the relay. The team of Melissa Jefferson, Abby Steiner, Jenna Prandini, and Twanisha Terry ran 41.14 to take the win. Prandini ran an excellent third leg to give Terry the lead before the final exchange, and Terry held off a hard-charging Shericka Jackson of Jamaica. Jamaica took silver in 41.18.

For the U.S., it’s the country’s first global title in the 4 x 100 since 2017. Their time of 41.14 is the fifth-fastest time ever run and the fastest ever on American soil.

The U.S. men, on the other hand, came up short of the gold medal, taking second to the gold medalists from Canada. The American quartet of Christian Coleman, Noah Lyles, Elijah Hall, and Marvin Bracy struggled with a few handoffs.

Canada seized the opportunity with a strong anchor leg from Andre De Grasse to take the win in 37.48. The U.S. clocked a time of 37.55 for silver, while Great Britain took bronze in 37.83.

Gudaf Tsegay wins gold in the women’s 5,000 meters

Gudaf Tsegay went for it in the 1500 meters earlier this week and came up just short. But the Ethiopian distance runner wouldn’t be denied in the 5,000 meters on Friday night.

Behind a big kick, Tsegay beat a stacked field to claim her first outdoor global title in 14:46.29. It was yet another thrilling women’s distance event—something that has been a theme of these championships.

Tsegay and 10,000-meter world champion Letesenbet Gidey went to the front after a slow beginning. The pair traded off the lead throughout most of the race, ramping up the pace and stringing out the field. But at the bell, a number of contenders remained.

There were three abreast up front as they rounded the final curve—Tsegay, Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands, and Beatrice Chebet of Kenya. Ultimately, it was Tsegay, who took out the 1500 meters at a torrid pace on Monday, who had the best kick. Chebet held on for silver in 14:46.75. Hassan faded to sixth, as Ethiopia’s Dawit Seyaum took the bronze in 14:47.36. Gidey wound up fifth.

Elise Cranny was the top finisher for the U.S., placing ninth in 14:59.99, and fellow American Emily Infeld was 14th in 15:29.03. Karissa Schweizer did not finish due to a calf injury. She was in good position throughout the race, but with two laps left, she slowed before eventually dropping out of the race with a lap to go. She was ninth in the 10,000 meters last Saturday.

Unsponsored Emmanuel Korir claims another global championship in the men’s 800 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (6)

The Olympic champion became the world champion in the men’s 800 meters. Emmanuel Korir of Kenya unleashed a big kick to take the win in 1:43.71.

Marco Arop of Canada went to the front about 300 meters in and kept the lead until 100 meters to go. That’s when Korir made his move to the front, and he opened up his advantage through the line.

Djamel Sedjati of Algeria also made up quite a bit of ground in the last 200 meters to move up to grab the silver medal in 1:44.14. Arop led a majority of the race and was fading fast in the closing meters, but managed to hang on to take bronze in 1:44.28.

It’s back-to-back global titles for Korir, who, despite that, is still unsponsored. He starred at the University of Texas at El Paso in college before turning pro in 2017.

The 800-meter final—along with the semifinal—did not feature any Americans after a rough first round.

Day 8, July 22

Sydney McLaughlin smashes her own world record—again

It looked almost too easy for Sydney McLaughlin.

The 22-year-old American cruised to the world title in the 400-meter hurdles to close out the action on Friday night at Hayward Field. McLaughlin ran 50.68 to break her own world record, which she set on the same track last month, by 0.73 seconds. It marks the fourth time that McLaughlin has broken the world record in event.

The race featured the three fastest 400-meter hurdlers of all time, but McLaughlin made that impossible to notice, as she pulled away from the field on the backstretch—and only extended her lead from there. McLaughlin’s margin of victory was 1.59 seconds over second place Femke Bol of the Netherlands, who ran the 12th fastest time ever with a 52.27. Former world record holder Dalilah Muhammad of the U.S. picked up the bronze in 53.13.

Friday’s win marked McLaughlin’s first victory at the World Championships. The Olympic champion from last year placed second to Muhammad at the 2019 World Championships in Doha.

It was the first world record set at this year’s World Championships. McLaughlin earned herself a $100,000 bonus for the breaking the record.

Michael Norman captures his first global title

After major disappointments in 2019 and 2021, Michael Norman of the U.S. put it all together to capture his first world title in the 400 meters. Norman turned on the jets in the final stretch to win in 44.29, beating a few legends of the event in the process.

Norman, along with world record holder Wayde Van Niekerk of South Africa, former world and Olympic champion Kirani James of Grenada, and Matthew Hudson-Smith of Great Britain rounded the final bend all about even.

But the American found another gear in the last 100 meters, pulling ahead to claim the win in front of the home crowd. After failing to make the final at the World Championships in Doha and placing fifth last year at the Tokyo Olympics, it was all golden for Norman in Eugene.

James came across for second in 44.48 and Hudson-Smith was third in 44.66. Champion Allison of the U.S. took fourth and Van Niekerk faded to fifth.

At long last, Shaunae Miller-Uibo gets her gold at the World Championships

Shaunae Miller-Uibo finally got the last global title missing from her resume. Despite winning Olympic gold in 2016 and 2020, the Bahamian quarter miler was yet to win at the World Athletics Championships.

That changed on Friday night, as Miller-Uibo ran away with the 400-meter title in 49.11. She made up the stagger early and held strong throughout the race. Miller-Uibo was a world silver medalist in the 400 in 2015 and 2019, but the veteran left no doubt about it this time around.

Marileidy Paulino of the Dominican Republic closed well to take silver in 49.60, moving past Sada Williams of Barbados in the final 100 meters. Williams earned bronze in 49.75.

It was the first time since 2003 that no American women were featured in the 400-meter final at a global championship.

At long last, Kara Winger gets a medal

Kara Winger saved her best for last. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. The American was sitting in fifth place in the javelin throw with one attempt left. Then she popped her best toss of the day—64.05 meters—to shoot herself all the way up to second place where she stayed.

With the home crowd behind her, Winger put down her silver medal-winning performance and produced an amazing reaction.

The 36-year-old Winger became the first American to win a medal in the javelin at the World Championships. Kelsey-Lee Barber of Australia took home the gold with a best throw of 66.91 meters.

All 3 Americans qualify for the women’s 800-meter final

Sunday’s final in the women’s 800 meters will feature all three Americans. Athing Mu, Ajeé Wilson, and Raevyn Rogers all advanced safely out of their semifinal heats.

Mu, the 20-year-old reigning Olympic gold medalist, looked comfortable winning the third heat in 1:58.12, the fastest time of the day. She went stride-for-stride down the homestretch with Ethopia’s Diribe Welteji, who advanced with the second best time, 1:58.16.

Wilson earned an automatic qualifying spot, taking second in the first heat in 1:59.97. Rogers, the bronze medalist from the Tokyo Olympics last year, went 1:58.77 to earn her spot in the final from the second heat, which was won by Olympic silver medalist Keely Hodgkinson of Great Britain in 1:58.51.

The can’t-miss final is set for Sunday at 9:35 p.m. EDT.

Day 7, July 21

Noah Lyles’s record-breaking run leads another American sweep in the men’s 200

Before tonight’s final in the 200 meters, many predicted the rematch between Noah Lyles and Erriyon Knighton would be a close one.

But two days after his 25th birthday, Lyles had a strong start then stormed out of the turn en route to a dominant victory. His 19.31 bests Michael Johnson’s 26-year-old American record by .01 second, and earned Lyles—who tore off his jersey in celebration—his third world championship gold (he’s the defending champion, and won gold in the 4x100-meter relay in Doha).

Olympic silver medalist Kenny Bednarek took silver here too, in a season’s-best 19.77. Knighton, the 18-year-old junior record-holder, claimed bronze in 19.80—a feat that makes him the youngest to ever win a world medal in an individual sprint event.

Shericka Jackson breaks the meet record to win the 200 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (7)

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce might have had the best start—but her teammate Shericka Jackson blasted ahead out of the curve to win gold in the 200 meters, in a championship-record 21.45. The time makes her the second-fastest ever, beyond only the legendary Florence Griffith Joyner, who holds the world record of 21.34.

Fraser-Pryce finished in a season’s-best 21.81 for silver—her 13th world championship medal. But following their dominance in the 100 meters, a second Jamaican sweep didn’t materialize. Instead, defending world champion Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain won bronze in 22.02.

The two Americans in the final finished strong in their first appearances at a world championship. Abby Steiner took fifth in 22.26, and Tamara Clark placed sixth in 22.32.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen begins search for redemption in the 5,000 meters; Woody Kincaid tumbles out

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (8)

Pumping up the crowd on the home stretch, Norwegian superstar Jakob Ingebrigtsen cruised through the first round of the 5,000 meters, running 13:13.92 to take second in heat 2 and claim a spot in the final Sunday. There, he’ll attempt to make up for what he’s called an “embarrassing” silver medal in the 1500 meters, where he was upset by Great Britain’s Jake Wightman.

Kenya’s Jacob Krop was first in the heat in 13:13.30. Northern Arizona University graduate Luis Grijalva, who runs for Guatemala, also put in a strong performance, leading from 2,000 meters through 3,200 meters—at one point, by a margin of nearly 3 seconds. After fading to sixth, he surged again in the final 300 meters to take third in a season’s-best 13:14.04.

But in a heartbreaking turn for Team USA, Bowerman Track Club’s Woody Kincaid was bumped from behind and fell at around the time Grijalva took the lead. Though he worked hard to rejoin the pack, he finished 11th in 13:25.02. He filed a protest, but is unsure of the result.

The other two Americans fared better in the first heat. After coming in fourth in the 10,000 meters on Sunday—and then a few ice baths and massages—Grant Fisher took control of the race at around the 3,000-meter mark, slowly picking up the pace, until Ethiopian Selemon Barega moved past with two and a half laps to go.

Fisher fell back to fourth, but as a huge pack of eight pushed toward the line, he and his teammate—recent Northern Arizona University graduate Abdihamid Nur—slid forward on the inside to secure auto-qualifying spots. Uganda’s Oscar Chelimo won in 13:24.24, Fisher took second in 13:24.44, and Nur was fifth in 13:24.48. Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei—the Olympic gold medalist and world record holder in the 5,000 meters, and now the world champion at 10,000 meters as well—came in fourth in 13:24.47 and also advances.

The men’s 5,000-meter final is scheduled for Sunday, July 24 at 6:05 p.m. PDT/9:05 p.m. PDT.

Athing Mu wins her heat, as all three American women advance in the 800 meters

Athing Mu already won the first Olympic gold for Team USA in the 800 meters since 1968—tonight, she took the initial step toward her first world championship title. Mu led the third heat of the first round wire-to-wire, easily winning in 2:01.30. Defending world champion Halimah Nakaayi of Uganda finished just behind her in 2:01.41.

Her young rival and Olympic silver medalist Keely Hodgkinson of Great Britain—they’re both just 20—easily won heat 2 in 2:00.88. And a third 20-year-old, Diribe Welteji of Ethiopia, ran the fastest time of the day to win heat 1 in 1:58.83.

Team USA’s Ajee’ Wilson took third in heat 3, running 2:01.02 to automatically move on to the semi-finals. And in her trademark come-from-behind style, Olympic bronze medalist and world silver medalist Raevyn Rogers bounced back from two bumps in heat 5 to advance from fifth place to first in the final 100 meters (she won in 2:01.36). That wasn’t her race plan, she told NBC afterward, but “you adjust.”

Rogers wasn’t the only athlete in a scuffle. In heat 2, Catriona Bisset of Australia—who led for the first 500 meters—was pushed from behind and took a hard fall, finishing last. She was reinstated following a protest.

The women’s 800-meter semifinal is scheduled for Friday, July 22 at 6:35 p.m. PDT/8:35 p.m. PDT.

Day 6, July 20

Norah Jeruto breaks championship record in women’s steeplechase

Norah Jeruto left nothing to chance in her quest to become a world champion. The Kenyan-born athlete who now competes for Kazakhstan led the women’s steeplechase final wire-to-wire, winning the title in 8:53.02. Jeruto broke the championship record despite 90-degree temperatures in Eugene.

Ethiopia claimed the rest of the podium spots with Werkuha Getachew earning silver in 8:54.61, a national record, and Mekides Abebe taking the bronze medal in 8:56.08, a personal best.

From the gun, the Diamond League final winner laid down a brisk sub 9:00-minute pace, leading the field through the first 1,000 meters in 2:57. Just after the first kilometer, the field strung out with Jeruto, Getachew, Abebe, and Winfred Mutile Yavi of Bahrain up front. In an attempt to stick with the leaders, 2017 world champion Emma Coburn remained within striking distance of the leaders. But with three laps remaining, the top four started to pull away from the competition, leaving Coburn, Peruth Chemutai of Uganda, and Celliphine Chespol of Kenya in their wake.

By the bell lap, the top four runners held a significant lead over the rest of the field and battled for position in the final moments. With a dominant water jump, Jeruto emerged ahead and cemented her status as world champion with a kick on the homestretch.

American Courtney Frerichs managed to run a season’s best of 9:10.59 for sixth-place while Coburn finished eighth in 9:16.49 after bravely going out with the leaders early on. In her first global championship final, Team USA’s Courtney Wayment placed 12th in 9:22.37.

Michael Norman leads men’s 400-meter semifinal

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (9)

The U.S. national champion ran away from the competition to win heat 1 of the men’s 400-meter semifinal in 44.30, the fastest time of the night. In the final, he’ll be joined by fellow Team USA sprinter and Florida Gator Champion Allison, who beat world record-holder Wayde Van Niekerk in heat 3 to automatically advance.

After recovering from ACL surgery a couple of years back, Van Niekerk looks to be returning to form. The 2016 Olympic champion from South Africa earned an auto spot into the final after running 44.75. Expect to see Kirani James contend for a title as well after the 2012 Olympic champion from Grenada won heat 2 in 44.74.

The men’s 400-meter final is set to take place on Friday, July 22 at 7:35 p.m. PDT/10:35 p.m. EDT.

No Americans will contest the women’s 400-meter final

U.S. sprinters Lynna Irby and Talitha Diggs will not advance to the women’s 400-meter final after finishing sixth in heat 1 and third in heat 3, respectively. It’s the first time since the 2003 World Athletics Championships that no American women will contest the 400-meter final at a global championship.

The final will be led by Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo after the Bahamian clocked 49.55, a season’s best to win her section.

The 400-meter title chase is scheduled for Friday, July 22 at 7:15 p.m. PDT/10 p.m. EDT.

Sydney McLaughlin sets the stage for thrilling 400-meter hurdles final

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (10)

Cruising to victory in heat 3, Sydney McLaughlin looked solid winning heat 3 in 52.17. The world record-holder and Olympic champion ran the fastest time of the day ahead of the women’s 400-meter hurdles final. Her performance is the second-fastest women’s 400-meter hurdles time in the history of the world championships.

McLaughlin’s international rival, Femke Bol of the Netherlands, clocked the second-fastest time of the day (52.84) for an easy victory in heat 2.

Three of McLaughlin’s American teammates also advanced. In her return from a hamstring injury, former world record-holder Dalilah Muhammad looked strong winning heat 1 in 52.28, a season best. Shamier Little will also move on after finishing second in a season’s best 53.61. In her first global championship, Britton Wilson qualified based on time in heat 2.

The women’s 400-meter hurdles final is scheduled for Friday, July 22 at 7:50 p.m. PDT/10:50 p.m. PDT.

Americans implode in men’s 800 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (11)

The first round of the men’s 800 meters was brutal for Team USA. All four American athletes failed to advance to the semifinal. It’s the first time since the 2000 Olympics that no American men advanced to the 800-meter semifinal at a global championship. Here’s a breakdown of what happened in the first six heats of the middle-distance event.

Defending world champion Donavan Brazier was unable to advance out of the second heat. After battling a case of bursitis earlier this season, the American’s fitness wasn’t up to speed. He faded to seventh while Peter Bol of Australia won the section in 1:45.50. After the race, Brazier told reporters he will undergo Haglund’s surgery in a week to repair his foot.

The third heat featured some drama when Canadian Brandon McBride fell to the track after the break in the first 200 meters. American Bryce Hoppel also struggled with a stumble early on. The Olympian finished fifth in 1:46.98 and was unable to advance. Up front, Moad Zahafi of Morocco won the section in 1:46.15 a few weeks after winning the NCAA 800-meter title for Texas Tech.

(Video) Day 3 Highlights | World Athletics Championships Oregon 2022

The fourth heat was won by Djamel Sedajati of Algeria, who clocked 1:46.39. Brandon Miller of Team USA finished fifth in 1:47.29 and failed to advance.

At first, it appeared that Jonah Koech would be the only American to automatically advance after finishing second in 1:44.62, a personal best, in heat 5. But Koech was later disqualified after making contact with another competitor.

The men’s 800-meter semifinal is scheduled for Thursday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m. PDT/10:00 p.m. EDT.

All three Americans advance out of blazing 5,000-meter semifinal

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (12)

Despite 90-degree temperatures in Eugene, the women’s 5,000-meter semifinal featured honest pacing in both heats.

The first heat kicked off at 14:50 pace thanks to Ririka Hironaka of Japan, who led the top pack through the majority of the race. Past the 1600-meter split, a front pack of nine athletes—including Americans Karissa Schweizer and Emily Infeld and 1500-meter silver medalist Gudaf Tsegay—pulled away from the rest of the field.

Just before the 4,000-meter mark, Schweizer moved to the front and picked up the pace slightly. In response, Tsegay moved to her shoulder and eventually took over the lead. With 600 meters to go, the world indoor champion increased the pace, bringing the front pack down to five women with one lap to go.

A close finish resulted in Tsegay winning the heat in 14:52.64. Her Ethiopian teammate Dawit Seyaum finished second in 14:53.06. Kenyans Beatrice Chebet (14:53.34) and Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi (14:53.45) also advanced with season’s best performances along with Schweizer, who finished fifth (14:53.69) for the final automatic qualifying spot. After running a season’s best of 15:00.98, Infeld finished sixth and her performance was just fast enough to get into the final on time. After the race, Infeld told reporters that she came down with COVID after competing at the USATF Outdoor Championships, which makes her worlds run even more impressive.

Another notable performance out of the first heat came from Caster Semenya, who placed 13th in 15:46. The two-time Olympic champion in the 800 meters moved up to the 5,000 meters after World Athletics ruled she needed to take hormone-reducing treatments in order to compete in her signature event. Caster declined and has since trained for the long distance event.

The second heat also went out fast thanks to Eilish McColgan of Great Britain, who led the field through most of the race. By the 3,000-meter mark (8:58), the top pack was reduced to nine runners, including two-time Olympic champion Sifan Hassan, 10,000-meter world champion Letesenbet Gidey, and U.S. champion Elise Cranny.

Around the 4,400-meter split, Jessica Judd of Great Britain jumped to the front ahead of McColgan and attempted to sprint away from the pack. But her lead was short-lived when Gidey, Caroline Chepkoech Kipkirui, Hassan, Karoline Grovdal, and Cranny kicked to the finish, earning the top five automatic qualifying spots into the final. Gidey won the heat in 14:52.27 and was followed by Kipkirui, who ran a season’s best of 14:52.54. Hassan also clocked a 14:52.89 season’s best. Cranny earned the final auto spot by running 14:53.20 for fifth.

The women’s 5,000-meter final will take place on Saturday, July 23 at 6:35 p.m. PDT/9:35 p.m. EDT.

Day 5, July 19

Brazil’s Alison Dos Santos bests Karsten Warholm and Rai Benjamin to win gold in the 400-meter hurdles

Last summer’s Olympic showdown between Norway’s Karsten Warholm and Team USA’s Rai Benjamin—in which Warholm shattered the world record in 45.94, and Benjamin took silver in 46.17, also smashing the previous record—ranks among the most epic races in track and field history.

Tonight, they met again—but it was the bronze medalist in that race, Brazil’s Alison Dos Santos, who came out on top, winning world gold in a meet-record 46.29. Benjamin took silver in 46.89, a season’s best for him.

Warholm took the race out fast, covering the first 200 meters in 21.50, but then faded dramatically, finishing seventh in 48.42. That left space for the American Trevor Bassitt to move from sixth up into a podium spot in the last 100 meters; he won bronze in a personal-best 47.39, and was enthusiastically congratulated by Benjamin afterward.

In a huge upset, Great Britain’s Jake Wightman wins the men’s 1,500 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (13)

About 1,300 meters into the men’s 1,500-meter final, Great Britain’s Jake Wightman took the lead over a star-studded field, passing Olympic champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen.

Few—including Ingebrigtsen—likely expected him to keep it. After all, Wightman had previously finished no higher than fifth in a global championship.

But even the Norwegian wunderkind couldn’t cover Wightman’s move, and the Brit powered his way to his first world title in 3:29.23. (His father, Geoff Wightman, is the stadium announcer.)

Ingebrigtsen claimed silver in 3:29.47, and Spain’s Mohamed Katir took bronze in 3:29.90, shutting other favorites—including defending world champion Timothy Cheruiyot of Kenya and his teammate Abel Kipsang, who previously had the world-leading time—out of the medals.

Noah Lyles and Erriyon Knighton set for a rematch in the 200 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (14)

Three weeks ago, Noah Lyles edged past 18-year-old Erriyon Knighton to win U.S. nationals—and threw in a small taunt for good measure. Soon, the two will meet again, this time to compete for a world title.

After a glance into the crowd to find his family, defending world champion Lyles finally ran a fast curve—and then a typically speedy home stretch. Put it together, and he wound up with 19.63 to win his heat and secure his spot in the final. Kenny Bednarek finished second in 19.84 to advance. Knighton easily won the third heat, in 19.77.

Fred Kerley, who led Team USA’s podium sweep in the 100 meters, appeared to back off before reaching the finish sixth in the first heat in 20.68; afterward, he cited a cramp. However, he said he’ll be prepared to race again in the 4x100-meter relay.

The men’s 200-meter final will take place at 7:50 p.m PDT/9:50 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 21.

Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson puts the meet on world record watch in the 200 meters

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (15)

Shericka Jackson has won world gold in the 400 meters and 100 meters before—now, she’s sprinting toward gold in the 200 meters as well. She ran a scorching 21.67 to win the first heat of the semifinals, threatening the championship record of 21.63 and even inspiring mentions of Florence Griffith Joyner’s world record of 21.34.

But she’ll have competition from her teammate and 100-meter world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won the third heat in a season’s best 21.82.

Team USA’s Tamara Clark, who’s in her first full season as a pro, ran down Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah and defending world champion Dina Asher-Smith to win the second heat in 21.96.

In her 54th race of the season and second as a pro, University of Kentucky standout Abby Steiner finished second in 22.15 to advance to the final.

Thompson-Herah advances to the final based on time. However, Olympian and former Oregon Duck Jenna Prandini finished fourth in the first heat in 22.08, and will not compete for a medal.

The women’s 200-meter final will take place at 7:35 p.m PDT/10:35 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 21.

Dalilah Muhammad returns, and all four Americans advance in the 400-meter hurdles

When Sydney McLaughlin and Dalilah Muhammad meet in the 400-meter hurdles, world records are likely to fall. At the USATF Outdoor Championships last month, McLaughlin—the Olympic gold medalist—proved she could set them on her own, as well.

As the reigning world champion, Muhammad already had a bye to Worlds—and when she injured her hamstring two weeks before the national competition, she received a waiver to bypass it. McLaughlin ran a stunning 51.41 to win the national title and break her own world record of 51.46, set at the Olympics in Tokyo.

Tonight marked Muhammad’s return, and the first step toward another rematch, when both (along with their teammates, Shamier Little and Britton Wilson) easily advanced to the semi-finals.

In the first heat, McLaughlin ran 53.95 to take first by nearly a full second—“shaking out the legs,” as she told NBC’s Lewis Johnson afterward. Muhammad led wire to wire to win the fourth heat in 54.45. Wilson, the NCAA champion, started slow but picked it up to won the fifth heat in 54.54; Little placed second in the second heat in 54.77.

Day 4, July 18

Faith Kipyegon becomes first woman to win four 1500-meter titles

Faith Kipyegon continued to prove why she is one of the best athletes to ever run the 1500 meters. On Monday night, the Kenyan champion became the first woman to win four global championship titles in the event by taking charge on the bell lap of the final in Eugene.

When her Ethiopian rival, Gudaf Tsegay set a blazing pace—58.9 for the first 400 meters and 2:03 at 800 meters—Kipyegon, Laura Muir of Great Britain, and Hirut Meshesha of Ethiopia were the only athletes to follow. Heading into the bell lap, Kipyegon moved to Tsegay’s shoulder and eventually passed the world indoor champion with about 250 meters to go. Kipyegon pushed the pace even further with 200 meters remaining. By the homestretch, the two-time Olympic champion was well ahead of the competition, clocking 3:52.96 to win gold once again.

Tsegay followed for silver in 3:54.52, and Muir claimed bronze in 3:55.28, a season’s best for the Olympic medalist. In total, Kipyegon has earned six medals at global championships, including Olympic gold in 2016 and 2021 and world championship gold in 2017 and 2022.

In her first ever global championship final, American Sinclaire Johnson held onto the chase pack and finished sixth in 4:01.63, a season’s best. Fellow Team USA standout Cory McGee finished 10th in 4:03.70, improving on her 12th-place finish in the Tokyo Olympic final last year.

The Olympic champion Soufiane El Bakkali becomes a world champion in the steeplechase

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (16)

In a dramatic men’s steeplechase final, the defending Olympic champion came out on top. With a furious kick down the homestretch, Soufiane El Bakkali of Morocco claimed the world title in 8:25.13, beating Lamecha Girma of Ethiopia (8:26.01) and two-time world champion Conseslus Kipruto of Kenya (8:27.92).

After battling injuries for the last four years, American Evan Jager made his comeback to the world stage with a sixth-place finish in the final. The performance marks his first global championship since claiming bronze at the 2017 world championships. Fellow American and Olympian Hillary Bor finished eighth in 8:29.77.

The race started at a conservative pace with all of the podium contenders jockeying for position up front. During the first lap, the entire field had to run around a cameraman, who was filming the triple jump from lane 1. For the remainder of the competition, the pace stayed slow with runners pushing each other at certain points. The race didn’t break open until Yemane Haileselassie of Eritrea surged ahead of the pack with 500 meters to go. At the bell, it became a six-man battle up front until El Bakkali made a decisive move on the homestretch to earn the title.

Anna Hall ends breakthrough season with a medal

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (17)

On Monday night, Anna Hall battled for a spot on the podium of the heptathlon with a stunning performance in the 800 meters, the last event of the competition. The national champion and NCAA champion won the middle-distance event in 2:06.67 and subsequently improved her career best heptathlon score with a point total of 6,755 points. She claimed the bronze medal behind world champion Nafissatou Thiam of Belgium and silver medalist Anouk Vetter of the Netherlands.

The Florida Gator is the first American to medal in the heptathlon at the world championships since 2001 when Sheila Burrell earned bronze. The last U.S. athlete to medal at the Olympic Games was Hyleas Fountain, who claimed silver in 2008. Hall’s performance ends a comeback season after the 22-year-old recovered from a broken Navicular bone in her left foot last year.

Abby Steiner qualifies through to the semis in first race as a pro

Days after signing with Puma as her shoe sponsor, Abby Steiner won heat 5 of the first round of the women’s 200 meters. The former University of Kentucky standout ran 22.26, the third-fastest time of the day in her first race at a global championship. The NCAA champion and record-breaker is considered a podium contender in the 200 meters, but first she’ll need to advance out of the semifinal on Tuesday, July 19. Team USA will also be sending Tamara Clark and Jenna Prandini into the next round.

After winning an unprecedented fifth world 100-meter title, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce easily advanced out of heat 3. She’ll be joined by fellow 100-meter medalists and Jamaican teammates Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah in the semifinal.

The fastest time of the night was clocked by Aminatou Seyni of Niger, who broke the country’s national record, winning heat 3 in 21.98.

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (20)

First, reigning Olympic champion Hansle Parchment of Jamaica sustained an injury during the warm-up. Then, Team USA’s Devon Allen was disqualified after a contentious false start—he was faster than the gun by 1/1000th of a second.

After all the drama, Olympic silver medalist Grant Holloway defended his title, winning gold in 13.03 seconds. His teammate Trey Cunningham claimed silver in 13.08 seconds. Spain’s Asier Martínez took bronze in a personal-best 13.17 seconds.

Team USA—led by hometown hero Ryan Crouser—sweeps the shot put

Josh Awotunde took bronze with a personal-best 22.29-meter throw.

In a Jamaican sweep of the podium, 35-year-old Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price added yet another gold medal to her extensive collection, defending the title of fastest woman in the world with a championship-record 10.67-second run. The victory makes her the first athlete to ever win five titles in an individual running event.

Olympic bronze medalist Shericka Jackson took silver in 10.73 seconds, and two-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah claimed bronze in 10.81 seconds. Team USA’s Aleia Hobbs finished sixth in 10.92 seconds, and U.S. champion Melissa Jefferson was eighth in 11.03 seconds.

But his time was just fast enough to snag him the last spot in the final based on time. In the first heat, Team USA’s Johnny Gregorek tumbled over the line to finish eighth in 3:37.35, and did not advance.

U.S. champion Cooper Teare, who had a stress reaction in his tibia after the national championships, was eliminated in the preliminary round on Saturday.

The finals for the men’s 1500 meters will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m PDT/10:30 p.m. EDT.

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (24)

World record-holder Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda blasted a 53.4-second final lap to successfully defend his world 10,000-meter title in 27:27.43.

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (26)

Team USA poses after taking gold, silver, and bronze.

Half the eight entrants in the final of tonight’s 100-meter dash were American—and when the dust settled, three of them stood on the podium, with Fred Kerley reigning supreme.

With the victory, Kerley becomes the first man ever to win gold in the 400 meters and the 100 meters; he made the shift in distance just last year. The Olympic silver medalist began the meet on Saturday by running 9.79—the fastest mark ever in a preliminary round. Tonight, a time of 9.86 earned him the gold medal.

Marvin Bracy, an Olympian, bronze medalist in the indoor 60 meters this year, and former football wide receiver, got off to a fast start, but took silver in 9.88. Meanwhile, Trayvon Bromell—bouncing back from a disappointing Olympics, where he failed to make the final—advanced in the outside lane, winning bronze in 9.88.

Defending champion Christian Coleman was sixth in 10.01. Olympic gold medalist Marcell Jacobs of Italy withdrew from the competition earlier on Sunday, citing injury.

Last year, Chase Ealey missed the Olympic Trials due to long COVID. But today, she achieved a memorable victory for Team USA—winning the country’s first-ever gold medal in the women’s shot put, with a first attempt of 20.49 meters.

The throw is the third-best by an American, behind only Olympic champion Michelle Carter and Ealey’s own personal best, 20.51.

Two American women will compete for a medal in the 1500 meters

Americans Corey McGee and Sinclaire Johnson advanced out of the semifinal in the 1500 meters.

McGee, an Olympian at the distance, kicked hard in the final 300 meters of the first heat. She advanced from seventh place to fifth, finished in 4:02.74, and secured her spot. Ethiopian Gudaf Tsegay won the heat in 4:01.28.

McGee’s fellow Olympian, Elle St. Pierre, struggled in the final lap of the first heat, and finished 11th in 4:09.84. She said afterward she hasn’t been feeling like herself lately; her coach, Mark Coogan, said she’s been struggling since having COVID earlier this year.

Johnson, meanwhile, stayed in the lead pack for most of the second heat. Olympic champion Faith Kipyegon won in 4:03.98, and Johnson was third in 4:04.51.

The second heat also featured controversy—after an apparent shove by Italy’s Gaia Sabbatini, Winnie Nanyondo of Uganda fell in the final 100 meters and did not complete the race. Sabbatini was later disqualified, and Nanyondo will advance to the final.

The finals for the women’s 1500 meters will take place on Monday, July 18 at 7:50 p.m PDT./10:50 p.m. EDT.

Allyson Felix earns 19th outdoor world championship medal before retirement

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (31)

Femke Bol of Team Netherlands, Fiordaliza Cofil of Team Dominican Republic, and Kennedy Simon of Team USA cross the finish line of the 4 x 400-meter mixed relay.

In her last global championship, Allyson Felix contributed to Team USA’s bronze medal in the mixed 4 x4 00-meter relay. Running the second leg of the quartet, the seven-time Olympic champion earned her 19th outdoor world championship medal (including 13 gold). Felix has said she’ll retire from the sport after this season, and Friday’s race was her last chance to earn a medal for the U.S.

Until the last 50 meters or so, it looked like the Americans would repeat as world champions in the event, but a late surge from Fiordaliza Cofil of the Dominican Republic and Femke Bol of the Netherlands resulted in an upset over Team USA. The Dominican Republic won gold in 3:09.82, a world lead. The Netherlands followed for silver in 3:09.90, a national record. After being overtaken in the final moments of the race, Team USA’s anchor leg, Kennedy Simon held on for bronze in 3:10.16.

Fred Kerley almost runs a world lead in the 100-meter heats

Daily Highlights From the 2022 World Athletics Championships (34)

Fred Kerley poses after his 100-meter run.

Fred Kerley showed he’s ready to upgrade from silver to gold. The U.S. champion blazed to victory in the first round of the men’s 100 meters, winning heat 2 in 9.79—the fastest ever 100-meter heat time at a major championship, according to World Athletics. The performance is the second-fastest time in the world so far this year behind Kerley’s season best of 9.76 from the semifinals of the USATF Outdoor Championships. Last year, Kerley made the transition from 400 to 100 meters and earned an Olympic silver medal in the shorter distance.

Minutes later, a new world junior record was set by Letsile Tebogo of Botswana, who blasted a 9.94 to win heat 5. Prior to Friday’s race, the 19-year-old African champion held a personal best of 9.96.

After experiencing major challenges obtaining a visa to enter the United States, Ferdinand Omanyala raced his way into the semifinal. The Kenyan sprinter finished third in heat 7, three hours after arriving in Eugene in a scramble. He didn’t receive a visa until Thursday morning in Kenya, according to USA Today. The podium contender is reportedly one of the hundreds of international athletes and officials who have encountered visa issues ahead of the world championships this week.

The men’s 100-meter semifinal is scheduled for Saturday, July 16 at 6 p.m. PDT/9 p.m. EDT.
