World Athletics Championships in Oregon: Results and Medal Tally for July 24th


The tenth and final day of the World Athletics Championships, held in Eugene (Oregon), brought strong emotions in disciplines such as the men’s pole vault, the women’s 100m hurdles, the 5,000m dash and the 35km Walk.

Tobi Amasan, world record over 100 m hurdles

The most surprising record of the World Cup that just ended was that of Nigerian Tobi Amasan in the 100m hurdles. She set the mark in the semifinals (12.12 seconds), beating the previous record holder, American Kendra Harrison, and significantly lowering her previous record. And in the final he beat him again (12.06 seconds), but it was worthless because of illegal wind. There have been voices questioning the record. Former American athlete Michael Johnson believes there were too many good marks in this race and estimates that a stopwatch error may have occurred.

Duplantis sets the human limit at 20 feet

Swede Mondo Duplantis finished the World Cup in the best possible way, with a jump that helped him break a world record for the fifth time. Pass the mark at 20 feet. And like everyone else who made it during the championship, he’ll receive a $100,000 check for it. The record comes four months after the 6.20m jump in Belgrade, the previous record.

The 35-kilometer march for the Italian Massimo Stano

The test, which made its debut in a World Cup after replacing the 50-kilometer walk, got underway quickly. Japan’s Daisuke Matsinaga escaped right after the start and was not caught until halfway through the test. In the end, the experience of Italian Massimo Stano, one of the favourites, prevailed. The Spaniard Miguel Ángel López was tenth.

Ingebrigtsen defeated the Afrikaners in the 5,000m

Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen, 21, beat the African army in the 5,000 meters. After the disappointment of silver in the 1,500m, where he was only out for gold, the young talent was able to bounce back and win the competition, which was dominated by Ugandans and Kenyans to the last kilometer. With 1,000 meters to go, Ingebrigtsen took charge and his final attack was to come with 150 meters to go.

USA tops medal table, Spain 39th

The first World Championship on US soil developed with a clear dominance of the North Americans, who finished at the top of the medal table with 33 medals: 13 gold, 9 silver and 11 bronze medals. Ethiopia finished second with 4 gold and 4 silver and 2 bronze medals. And Jamaica, third with 2 gold, 7 silver and 1 bronze. Spain occupies position 99 with two bronze medals achieved by Asier Martínez in the 110m hurdles and by Mohamed Katir in the 1,500m.
