McLeod adds world title

McLeod adds world title

I had to get out and take control of the race.

After a weekend of disappointment for Jamaica following the 100m sprint losses by Bolt and Elaine Thompson, 23-year-old McLeod chose the flawless night to bound headlong to world championship glory and cheer up his nation.

"I wanted to come out here and make Jamaica happy", McLeod said, adding in the direction of retirement-bound compatriot superstar Usain Bolt who had to settle for 100m bronze: "This is for you".

"It's totally different to a year ago where we had Usain and Elaine winning, which I used to propel me".

Defending champion Sergey Shubenkov, the Russian who was competing as an "authorized neutral athlete" with his country's federation still banned from worldwide athletics, clocked 13.14, becoming the first Russian to win a medal in London, while Hungary's Balazs Baji took a surprise bronze in 13.28.

Since the 2012 Olympics, Merritt has had a kidney transplant.

"I am back on the world stage and that's the main thing". Semenya, who will now turn her attention to winning a third world 800m title, added: "It was like music to me coming back to this stadium with all the memories and I'm perfectly satisfied with the bronze".

"I knew it would be fast, it is such a quality field", Kipyegon said.

The 31-year-old had been the one to beat going into the competition.

The big shock was defending world champion Genzebe Dibaba from Ethiopia, who trailed home in last place.

Yulimar Rojas claimed Venezuela's first-ever World Athletics Championships title when she won the women's triple jump by two centimeters from great rival Caterine Ibarguen in a see-saw battle.

Even with Wlodarczyk's problems, the closest challenge to her crown was from China's Zheng Wang, who won her first world medal by throwing 75.98 to claim silver.

Ibarguen was leading with 14.89 meters until the fifth round when Rojas produced a leap of 14.91, the fourth time the lead had changed hands.
