    The top three are confirmed - Zango, Martinez and Napoles. However, all three of them have one final attempt. Can either of the two Cubans pull off a miracle here to snatch the gold medal away from Zango?

  • August 22, 2023 00:37

  • August 22, 2023 00:20
    Women’s 100m third semifinal

    How fast is this semifinal going to be?

    Oh my word! There has been a false start. And the culprit is Saint Lucia’s Julien Alfred. She was disqualified for the same offense at the same stage last year in Eugene but this time, she receives just a yellow card and lives to fight another day.

    And what a turnaround! Alfred wins the semifinal with 10.92s. USA’s Brittany Brown is second with 10.97s

    Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith, third with 11.01s, is tied with Swoboda for the final non-automatic qualifying place. The organisers will have to measure it down to the very thousandth of a second to separate the two as Sha’Carri Richardson (10.84s) is safely through as the fastest loser. Verdict is out - Asher-Smith beats Swoboda to the final non-automatic qualifying spot by a whisker.

  • August 22, 2023 00:18
    Women’s 100m second semifinal

    Like her compatriot Fraser-Pryce, Shericka Jackson too starts a bit slowly before taking the lead and winning with 10.79s. Actually, she is joint-first with Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast who has the exact same time. USA’s Sha’Carri Richardson, one of the title favourites, is third with 10.84s and as it stands, is the fastest loser with Poland’s Ewa Swoboda (11.01s) behind her as the second fastest loser.

  • August 22, 2023 00:11
    Men’s triple jump final update

    After three attempts, Martinez of Cuba is still in the lead with 17.41m. Zango second with 17.37m and Zhu third with 17.12m. Hibbert still with no jump.

  • August 22, 2023 00:09
    Women’s 100m first semifinal - Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wins it!

    A slow start from the five-time world champion Fraser-Pryce but she finds her stride quickly to finish first with a timing of 10.89s. Tamari Davis of USA is second with 10.98s.

    Ewa Swoboda of Poland is third with 11.01s and Daryll Neita of Great Britain is fourth with 11.03s. Both of these athletes will have to wait and see if they can qualify as the fastest losers.
