The 2019 Athletics World Championships in Doha has continued to provide some incredible performances. It was a surprising choice of venue and this has backfired with large numbers of empty seats but this it has not detracted from the quality on the track.

Salwa Eid Naser – 400

Bahrain’s Salwa Eid Naser provided one of the performances of the championships, in what was one of the deepest women’s 400m fields in history. Reigning Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas was the strong favourite and expected to take the title. She also ran the sixth fastest time in history at 48.37 but this was only enough for the silver. Naser produced the third fastest time in history and lowered her PB by a second to run a time of 48.14. This putting her as the third fastest in history. The 21 year old will now head to the Olympics next year full of confidence and hopeful of landing the Gold medal.

 

 

Dina Asher-Smith – 200m

Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith dominated the 200m field to land her first world title. The 23 year old was coming off the back of picking up a silver medal in the 100m, where she had also recorded a personal best and national record time of 10.83. She was the overwhelming favourite and a popular selection for many to land the 200m crown, who has been using offers available at https://www.online-casinos.ng to support her. Dina made a flying start to the final and powered down the homestretch with a big lead and eventually finishing with a winning time of 21.88 seconds, which was another national record. She will now be hoping to challenge for Olympic medals next year.

 

 

Donavan Brazier – 800m

Donavan Brazier also provided one of the most memorable performances of the world championships as he broke the American 800 metre record on the way to picking up the Gold. This was a 34 year old American record and he also broke the championship record with a time of 1:42:34. This also meant he became the first U.S runner to win gold in the event. Brazier ran away from the field with 250 metres to go, looking a class apart. He will now be the strong favourite to follow up and land the Olympic title next year in Tokyo.
