Men’s 1500m Final

The men’s 1500m gold race is intense. It could be anyone’s game, including Jacob Ingebrigtsen, Abel Kipsang, Jack Wittman, Samuel Tefera, among others. In fact, Kipsang also clocked 3:31.01 to impress as this year’s best.

If anyone looked at their semifinal times, it was Kipsang, who set the pace with a run of 3:33.68, and Wightman also impressed with the third-best time of the semifinals. It is the performance in the final, which counts the most. And on July 19 the 13 finalists will be eager to bring their A game to gold.

Best of three times in semi-finals

  • Abel Kipsang – 3:33.68
  • Mohammad Katir – 3:34.45
  • Jake Wittman – 3:34.48

However, Ingebrigsten did not achieve great timing, 11th fastest, but the runner is sure to have his best in the final. Ingebrigsten has won several golds in the event, including the Olympics, but it is the world championship gold that is missing from the cabinet. This will give him a boost against some of the elite athletes in the event.

Women’s 200m Semi-Finals

After breaking the championship record in the women’s 100m, Shelley-Anne Fraser-Pryce will have her eye on gold in the 200m as well. With the semi-final on July 19, no one is expected to go all out on him. His focus will be on achieving a good time and preparing for the final. However, building momentum before the finals becomes equally important.

Fellow Jamaican Sherika Jackson will be in focus with the athlete achieving the year’s best time of 21.55. Jamaicans are always strong in the sprint events, but US athletes including Abby Steiner and Tamara Clarke will be eager to showcase their talent and speed.

Men’s 200m Semi-Finals

As expected Noah Lyles and Aerion Knighton were the two fastest sprinters in the 200m heats. The two Americans have been quite impressive this season and the pair have enjoyed two of their best times of the year. However, it will be interesting to see how another American and 100m gold medalist Fred Kerle fares in this event. The trio is expected to make it to the finals without much trouble.

Elsewhere, the likes of Jamaican Yohan Blake, who failed to make the 100m final, will be hoping for a better showing in the 200m. But chances are slim with many in-form runners to make it to the final round. He has the 19th best time in a heat.
