  • World Athletics U20 Championships 2022, Cali, Colombia, 1st - 6th August: Day 6

    Just obeying RunUnlimited's instruction.

    I am not competent to write the preview (I'm a jogger not a journalist). Go for it jjimbojames .

    I will say good luck to Reardon and Hussey. They have both had very good champs already.
    And good luck to the 4x4 women. They probably need for John to run, and for her crown to stay on the whole way round (a couple of safety pins, perhaps).
    Putting down the flag for a mo, it has been a great champs with some staggering performances. And today again with the likes of Topic in the HJ there could be fireworks.

    Only an afternoon/evening session today, and (obviously) all finals.

    21:30 M Discus Throw (1.750kg)
    21:35 W High Jump
    21:40 W 100 Metres Hurdles
    21:50 W Triple Jump
    22:00 W 1500 Metres
    22:16 M 800 Metres
    22:25 W 5000 Metres
    23:00 M 3000 Metres Steeplechase
    23:20 W 4x400 Metres Relay
    23:43 M 4x400 Metres Relay

    Not much British participation. Hussey and Reardon go in the 800, and the women squeezed into the 4x4 (but have Yemi Mary John to bring in).

      I haven’t followed these Champs too much, but after a stunning mTJ final yesterday, the women will want to grab their share of the limelight. The 8 and 15 have some athletes with fast times, but it’s whether they run hard to utilise that - if not, the British boys, and Reardon particularly, have speed to play with down the home straight.

        Not just Topic. She should have very tough competition from 17yo Karmen Bruus who improved her PB by 6cm in Eugene and equalled the World U18 Record, jointly held by Topic at 1.96. There's also a 19yo Dutch girl, Britt Weerman, who's jumped 1.95.

          Impressive 12.77 for Kerrica Hill to win the 100h, with her fellow Jamaican in silver.

            Jamaican women have had an amazing comp

          Hill is eligible for the 2024 champs. Mia McIntosh has now seen first hand what the required level is.

            Very hard fought women's 1500, and a championship record.

              Relay start lists up, and Yemi Mary John is coming in on the first leg.

                I think I’d prefer her on 2nd, to make her chase a bit and keep them in it, but it is what it is

              Ethan Hussey gets our second medal at these camps, a bronze, in a very tense race.

                Well done from Ethan Hussey! A well fought for bronze medal there. Almost two medals for Great Britain there, but Reardon just couldn't quite hang on in the home straight. Girma with the gold.

                  Two more impressive young Ethiopian distance women there.

                    Caune gave it a really good go.

                      Great run by Hussey. Reardon really is a top guy - post-race interview was everything you’d hope for from the captain. His time will surely come

                        Well reminded.

                        Bruus gold, Weerman silver, Topic bronze.

                          Perhaps not surprising that it was high quality, but 1.93 is still a very good height for bronze at U20.

                        Bronze for the relay girls. YMJ didn't give us as much of a lead as I think we would have expected at the start.

                          I was impressed by how close we were to Jamaica. Other than YMJ the rest of the team are all U18s.
