The incident occurred during a Thursday evening programme. The participants in the semi-finals of the 200-meter flat track race were men traveling on an electric car. Of these, Jamaican Andrew Hudson was the worst, with shards of glass hitting his eye and leg. After that, his race went down to the rear and although he started, he couldn’t concentrate perfectly on the race and couldn’t get ahead. On the other hand, the IAAF, given the circumstances, allowed him to continue, so that he could be present in the finals which started after we closed on Friday.
A volunteer who was in the other car was injured. The Organizing Committee regretted this incident. “Strict traffic rules apply in the area of the National Sports Center. Competitors are transported by 26 electric cars that have traveled thousands of kilometers since the start of the World Championships. In the announcement made by the organisers, which reveals that the speed limit has been revised from 19 km/h, the speed has been reduced to 15 km/h, physical separation will be built on the roads between lanes, and traffic controllers will assist at intersections from Friday morning.
It could have been bigger
For a long time it looked like Jamaican gold could be born among the men’s long jumpers, but Greek European and Olympic champion Miltiadis Tintoglou beat Wayne Pennock by two centimeters in the final series and won the world championship title with his best result of the season. . The third place was taken by the Jamaican Tagay Gael. “The only medal that was still missing from my collection is now my medal. After my first jump of 850cm I kept calm. I knew Pennock would do everything he could, he is very strong and will be even better next year. I wanted to jump Above 850 and I passed the last round, but my foot fell off, so I lost a bigger score. It was a very good race, better than last year. My goal now is to defend all my titles. In athletics, everyone dreams of achieving great results and world records, but It’s hard to do because of the new shoe rules.My last jump today was about 870 but I lost 20cm of it and if I could jump in runner shoes I’d get 880. I have to run fast that’s why I need runner shoes.Look how many people who slipped while jumping… If they want to see world records, they should listen to the athletes about what they need for this. Although I want the same rights Mike Powell had (long jump world record holder – ed. ) Years ago Now I want to hug my friend, a Greek journalist. Let’s travel around the world together on sports tracks. “He is a big critic of my statements, but I learn a lot from him,” Tintoglu, who has been regularly speaking about the new rules affecting jumpers lately, said after the competition.
After the men’s hammer throw event, there was also a Canadian gold medal for the women. However, Camryn Rogers’ success wasn’t as surprising as that of Ethan Katzberg. “Competing with these amazing and talented athletes in the final is even more rewarding. We all came here with a common goal and that makes this experience even better. I’m glad I was able to share these moments with them. This gold is a very big step in my career,” said Rogers. , who hugged and celebrated with his rivals after the last series: “I am very excited about what next season brings, Paris is going to be huge.”
In the women’s 100m hurdles, Jamaica broke the barrier and won its first gold medal in Budapest. After Daniel Williams, Jamaican Antonio Watson won the men’s 400-meter flat. “My coach said I could win and I did. 90% of us who compete in my country are motivated by Usain Bolt’s results, and so am I. Now I focus on the 4×400,” says the runner, who is only 21 years old.
