Kazakhstan’s 100m champion Viktoriya Zyabkina added the 200m title to her medal tally in Gwangju on Friday (10), becoming the first woman since 1987 to achieve the sprint double at the World University Games.
The 2014 African Championships in Marrakech drew to a close on Thursday (14) as no fewer than 15 titles were decided. One of the most hotly contested of those, the men’s 1500m, was the last individual event on the programme and it did not disappoint.
Almost all of the winners on the second day of action at the African Championships in Marrakech on Tuesday (11) either broke some form of record or added another gold medal to a previous victory from a past edition of these championships.
