WORLDS EUGENE 2022 - A record Amusan, Team USA impregnable in the 4x400m: What not to miss this night

WORLDS EUGENE 2022 – A record Amusan, Team USA impregnable in the 4x400m: What not to miss this night

Duplantis, world record and the world title at stake…

Armand Duplantis left only crumbs to his opponents. This Sunday, at the end of the world championships in athletics, on the side of Eugene in the State of Oregon in the United States, the Swede broke his own world record in the pole vault, bringing it to 6 21 meters, a small centimeter better than the previous mark established last March, on the side of Belgrade. His fifth record, the third this year. A bar crossed on his second try, but his huge margin on this one may suggest that he should not stop there.


Lavillenie, “shitty jumps” but a smile: “I prefer to struggle today”


At the moment of crossing this impressive bar, “Mondo” Duplantis was then already assured of the title of outdoor world champion. The only one who was missing from his list, he who is only 22 years old. The Swede was European champion in 2018, Olympic champion last summer and world indoor champion earlier this year. Renaud Lavillenie finished 5th in the competition.

… just like Amusan in the 100 meter hurdles

She had struck a blow in the semi-finals. Aged 25, Nigerian Tobi Amusan broke the world record for the 100 meter hurdles, bringing it to 12’12”, finishing just ahead of the one who held this famous world record since 2016 (12’20”), namely the American Kendra Harrison. To then do it again in the final, with a new stratospheric time of 12’06”.

But due to too favorable a wind at the back (2.5 m/s), his time will not be approved. The Nigerian will console herself, despite everything, with the title of world champion which she obviously won. On the podium, she is ahead of Jamaican Britany Anderson (12’23”) and Puerto Rican Jasmine Camacho-Quinn (12’23”), who is none other than the reigning Olympic champion. The two athletes were separated to the thousandth of a second.

The Americans fly over the two 4×400 meter relays

They closed these Worlds. In the 4×400 meter relays, the United States won each time, whether in the men’s or the women’s category. Among the ladies, legend Allyson Felix, who was recalled to play in the playoffs, won a 20th world medal. A record.

In the final, the quartet of Talitha Diggs, Abby Steiner, Britton Wilson and Sydney McLaughlin, who broke the world record for the 400m hurdles two days ago, clocked 3’17”79, beating on the podium, Jamaica and Great Britain.

On the men’s side, Elija Godwin, Bryce Deadmon, Champion Allison and Michael Norman, world champion in the 400 meters, triumphed. In a time of 2’56”17, the Americans also beat Jamaica, while the podium was completed by Belgium. Two final medals for the United States, kings at home, with 33 medals including thirteen in gold.

Ingebrigtsen catches up in the 5000 meters

He had revenge to take. While he had not digested his silver medal in the 1500 meters, a distance of which he is however the reigning Olympic champion, the Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen, now only 21 years old, has caught up perfectly well , since he won the world title in the 5000 meter distance. His first world title.

His time of 13’09”24 put him on the podium ahead of the Kenyan Jacob Krop (13’09”98) and the Ugandan Oscar Chelimo (13’10”20), who won their all first international medal. These two athletes are as young as him and aged 21 and 20. His usual tactic, namely his gradual acceleration on the occasion of the very last kilometer, worked and none of his competitors could therefore prevent him from winning, by trying to overtake him on the last lap.

After Olympic gold, Mu world champion in the 800 meters

It confirms its supremacy over distance. Aged only 20, the American Athing Mu, reigning Olympic champion and also Olympic champion in the women’s 4×400 meters with the American relay, won the world title over the 800 meters distance, for her very first Worlds.

On the podium, the athlete, undefeated in the outdoor distance since 2019, is very slightly ahead of the Briton Keely Hodgkinson, by eight small hundredths, with a time of 1’56”30. while third place went to Kenyan Mary Moraa, in a time of 1’56”71. Before Mu, an American had never won world gold at this distance.

Mihambo retains his well at length

She remains the queen. Malaika Mihambo, reigning Olympic champion, retained her title of world champion in the long jump. His test measured at 7.12 meters was therefore largely sufficient for his happiness.

Now 28, the German, also European champion in 2018, was therefore also on the top step of the podium, near Doha, on the occasion of the last edition of the Worlds. This Sunday, the athlete beat the Nigerian Ese Brume (7.02 meters) and the Brazilian Leticia Oro Melo (6.89 meters).
