Welcome to Sportstar’s HIGHLIGHTS of day five of the World Athletics Championships 2023 in Budapest, Hungary.

  • August 24, 2023 01:34
    The End!

    That’s curtains on the fifth day of action from the World Athletics Championships.

    Some positives for India. We have out first two finalists in Jeswin Aldrin and Parul Chaudhary in Long Jump and 3000m steeplechase, respectively.

    A thrilling finish to the day too. Karsten Warholm srtrolled to victory in the men’s 400m hurdles final. USA’s Katie Moon and Australia’s Nina Kennedy shared the Women’s Pole Vault gold.

    The shocker was in the 1500m final where Jakob Ingebrigtsen’s wait for the Worlds gold was extended by Britain’s Josh Kerr who stole the title at the final stretch of the race.

  • August 24, 2023 01:25

  • August 24, 2023 01:15
    Women’s Pole Vault - Final

    Katie Moon and Nina Kennedy share the spoils. It’s a gold for the Australian and the American.

    They have a chat about having a jump off but settle for the shared medal in the end at 4.90m. The bronze goes to Finland’s Wilma Murto at 4.80m.

  • August 24, 2023 01:05
    Women’s Pole Vault - Final

  • August 24, 2023 00:50
    Final lap

    Laros moves into third ahead of Kipsang. Ingebrigtsen and Kerr fighting for the top place.

  • August 24, 2023 00:48
    Get set go!

    Ingebrigtsen makes his intent clear right away. We are used to seeing him hang back and make the dash later on in the race. But today, he is leading after 500 metres.

  • August 24, 2023 00:46
    Who takes the 1500 crown?

    Abel Kipsang, Yareg Nuguse and Josh Kerr. This trio will push till the very end to get that title away from the favourite Ingebrigtsen. Can the Olympic champion from Norway get to the one medal his heart most desires? We’re about to find out.

    Jeswin Aldrin and Sreeshankar - Long Jump qualification

    Jeswin Aldrin and Murali Sreeshankar are first and second in the top lists for best outdoor jump this season—the first time two Indians will have that accomplishment going into the World Championships. Both have made it to Budapest after meeting the qualification standard and are in decent form as well.

    Aldrin started off the year with a bang and a jump of 8.42m at the Indian Jumps Competition but endured a spell of poor form following a bout of COVID-19. He bounced back with a jump of 8.22m in Switzerland earlier this month, which is his biggest jump overseas.

    image (5).jpeg

    Sreeshankar, meanwhile, cleared 8.37m in his last competition prior to the world championships to take silver at the Asian Championships in Thailand. The effort at the continental championships was the fifth time he has crossed the 8m barrier in seven tournaments this year. Having made the final and finished seventh at Eugene last year, Sreeshankar should be backing himself to do much better. On the basis of the current form, Aldrin should be aiming for a similar result. While Sreeshankar hasn’t had the best results in Europe—his best jump on the continent was 8.09m at the Paris Diamond League in June—both he and Aldrin will go in as potential medal winners. The only factor holding him and Aldrin back from a podium finish could simply be the fact that neither has medalled at a world-level event before.

    Neeraj might be one of the favourites in the men’s javelin throw right now, but at his first World Championships back in 2017, he didn’t even make the final, finishing just outside the automatic qualification after trying to save energy for the finals.

    Annu Rani in action - Women’s javelin qualification

    Annu Rani just about qualified for the World Championships on the basis of her ranking, but she is a long way off her best. She has yet to make a throw over 60m this season—her worst showing in five years. Even her best of 59.24m came at the very start of the season and her most recent performance saw her only throw 54.76m at the Hylo Javelin meet earlier this month.

    Thirty-two of the 36 competitors at the World Championships have thrown further than the Indian this year. Her chances of advancing to the final and getting a third top-eight finish at the World Championships are unlikely.
