2021 will be remembered for so many outstanding performances and breakthrough accomplishments - a great sign that 2022 will be even better.
I had been hoping to see two world records expunged from the statistics held by World Athletics - the women's Triple Jump and the men's Shot. And they were, in no uncertain ways by Yulimar Rojas and Ryan Crouser.
The World under-20 Championships threw up a plethora of talent, many of whom will start to shine even more brightly when competing with the senior elites. Some will even figure in their country's squads for the main World Championships in Eugene, Oregon.
Let's hope and pray that COVID-19 does not impact any more than it did this year, and that athletes will exceed their coaches' expectations!
