Day 7 of the World Athletics Championships is complete and it ended with a bang from Eugene, Oregon. The US team continues to dominate the medal count after a big day in the 200m finals.

Saving the best for last on Day 7

There were two medal events coming into the day, both coming in the same event on the men’s and the women’s side. All eyes were on the 200m finals to close out the Day 7 from Hayfield Field with a bang.

The action started around mid-day on the west coast, when the qualifiers for the men’s Javelin Throw kicked off the day. The lone women’s event in which a medal wasn’t on the line was the 800m heats early in the afternoon.

The men’s 5000m heats and the triple jump qualifiers were next up before the men’s 800 semifinal.

Jamaican their way to the podium, again

But the fans showed up in huge numbers to watch the two main events of the night. The women’s 200m final was first up. Tamara Clark was the only one American in the running after Jenna Prandini’s 22.08 wasn’t enough to push her on to the final. Clark and defending champion Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain were up against Jamaica’s fearsome threesome of Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce who finished the 100m final with gold, silver and bronze. Asher-Smith made sure that didn’t happen, finishing third, behind Jamicans Faser-Pryce in second, and Jackson, with a 21.45, who will go home with the gold after the two swap finishing spots from the 100m final.

Noah knows no limits

In the men’s 100m final, the US had much higher hopes of gold, and there were ambitions of a clean sweep of the podium for the Stars and Stripes. Canadian Olympic Champion in Tokyo, Andre De Grasse, was forced to pull out of the championships after failing to recover from covid in time. That opened up the door Noah Lyles, Kenneth Bednarek and Erriyon Knighton to potentially step to the podium together like the Jamaican women did in the 100m final and that’s exactly what they did on Thursday night. Lyles took gold with a time of 19.31, Bednarek silver and Knighton third.
