• Day 8 - still more GREAT EVENTS!

    14 August at 06:00 from atlas

    Being away from home, with no Internet access means that these postings are retrospective - no matter, you've probably already enjoyed this and the following days' competiton highlights and disappointments.

    Read the IAAF website Report which details the triumphs of Dafne Schippers NED in the women's 200m; Brittney Reese USA out-leaping Darya Klishina UKR by a mere 2cm in the women's Long Jump (with two other athletes within 5-6cm); Pawel Fajdek POL winning the men's Hammer; and the astounding American 1-2 in the women's 3000m Steeplechase, with Emma Coburn and Courtney Frerichs defeating several Kenyans (who might have been expected to dominate the race).

    Juniors in action: Celphine Chespol KEN (23-Mar-99) came in 6th and Winfred Yavi BRN (31-Dec-99) 8th in that sensational steeplechase. In the women's 100m Hurdles heats Alicia Barrett GBR failed to advance to the semi-finals.
