DAY 4: 22 August, Tuesday

EVENING Session

 

Luca Kozak, the most successful Hungarian hurdler, arrives at the National Athletics Centre. She was the silver medallist at the European Championships in Munich, where she also broke the national record in the 100m hurdles. Her opponents are likely to include Tobi Amusan, the world record-holder from Nigeria, and Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the Puerto Rican Olympic champion and two-time winner of the Gyulai Istvan Memorial meeting in Hungary. 

 

Soufiane El Bakkali, the reigning world champion of the 3000m steeplechase, is set for another big race. The 800m heats also promise tactical battles and lots of excitement.

 

This session could see Mutaz Barshim, Gianmarco Tamberi and Woo Sanghyeok battle it out in the men's high jump final, Sydney McLaughlin and Femke Bol run in the semifinals of the 400m hurdles, and Faith Kipyegon go for gold in the 1500m final. The Kenyan is the biggest favourite in this event and she was just three tenths of a second off the world record in 2022.

 

In the women's discus throw, a European-US duel is expected. Multiple global gold medallist Sandra Perkovic of Croatia and Olympic champion Valarie Allman from USA will both be going to Budapest to win the gold medal.
