DAY 9: 27 August, Sunday

EVENING Session

 

Get ready for a finals-filled last session. In the men's 5000m, two world stars – Jakob Ingebrigtsen and Joshua Cheptegei – could give us an unforgettable race. In the women's 800m, Athing Mu, Keely Hodgkinson and Mary Moraa will hope to make the final interesting for three different continents.

 

Also on the track, Kazakhstan’s Norah Jeruto will hope for a second world title as she takes on the world’s best steeplechasers.

 

The javelin can be quite an unpredictable event. Johannes Vetter was very close to the world record in 2021, before he was injured. If he makes a good comeback and throws close to his 97.76m personal best, he will be hard to beat. But Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra, who made history for India with his victory in Tokyo, will try. He is fighting to break the 90-metre barrier and was just six centimetres away from it in 2022. Grenada’s Anderson Peters has surpassed that mark several times before and will be going for an unprecedented third consecutive world javelin title.

 

Yaroslava Mahuchikh, the high jump superstar from Ukraine, competed in 2022 in the shadow of war and achieved great success, including winning the European Championships and the World Indoor Championships. To achieve victory in Budapest, she must get past Eleanor Patterson, who defeated her at the last World Championships outdoors.

 

The 4x400m relays are always a very spectacular conclusion to a major event. In the women's relay, the USA, with Athing Mu, Sydney McLaughlin and Abby Steiner, may have a chance of threatening the world record as they compete against teams such as Poland and Jamaica. The US men’s team will also be looking for a successful title defence after a win on home soil in Oregon.
