Kyle Langford became the latest member of the British team to leave these World Championships with a hard-luck story as he was deprived of an unlikely 800m bronze medal by the width of a vest.
The 21-year-old from Watford, who was ranked 46th in the world going into these championships, looked a beaten man 80 metres from home. But then, to the delight of the home fans, he produced a stunning late surge which took him from last to the shoulder of the Alfred Blue Authentic Jersey third-placed Kenyan Kipyegon Bett.
Bett was ragged with tiredness but he had just enough left to flop over the line. A mere 0.04sec behind was Langford in fourth, with a personal best of 1min 45.25sec scant compensation for coming so close to a medal.
It was the latest misfortune to hit the British team after Laura Muir missed out on a 1500m medal by 0.07sec on Monday and means the team still has only one medal after five days of these championships.
“I have a funny mentality of wanting to win everything,” Langford said. “I know in my heart I wanted to get a medal so it is gutting not getting it. I have to take it on the chin and try to learn from the experience.
“Come Tokyo I won’t be making that mistake,” he added. “I promise I will be getting that Olympic http://www.texansonlineofficialstore.com/Akeem-Dent-Jersey gold medal. Hopefully in the years to come you will see me taking over from Mo Farah.”
The Frenchman Pierre-Ambroise Bosse took a deserved gold medal in 1min 44.67sec, having made a decisive break with 250m to go, and the fast-finishing Pole, Adam Kszczot, took silver.
Earlier Dina Asher-Smith gave the London Stadium a glimpse of her startling talent as she qualified for the semi-finals of the women’s 200m only weeks since she started running again after breaking her foot. Asher-Smith, who finished fifth in last year’s Olympics, ran 22.73sec to win her heat and afterwards set her sights on doing even better this year than in Rio.
“I was so happy to be able to put that race together in a heat Andrew Franks Youth Jersey without expending too much energy,” said Asher-Smith. “I’ll definitely take a 22.7, especially with the season I’ve had so far.”
Her chances of a medal increased when the 100m champion, Tori Bowie, pulled out of the event after failing to recover from falling over the line on Sunday night’s final. However, both the 100m silver http://www.dolphinsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Anthony-Fasano-Jersey medallist, Marie-Josée Ta-Lou, and the bronze medallist, Dafne Schippers, looked impressive in winning their heats, as did Shaunae Miller-Uibo, who is going for a 200m-400m double in London.
Elsewhere Kenya’s dominance of the 3,000m steeplechase continued as the Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto scampered away from the field with 250 metres remaining to win in 8min 14.12sec with the Moroccan Soufiane Elbakkali second and the American Evan Jager, who had been the pre-race favourite, taking bronze. The result meant that Kenya continued its proud record of winning every Olympic and world steeplechase gold medal since 1987.
Meanwhile the American Sam Kendricks won the pole vault after clearing 5.95m, with the Pole Piotr Lisek taking silver and Renaud Lavillenie third. “I have never been in a competition like it,” said Kendricks. “The crowd gave everything in their hearts to support me. I’ve finally got that world title and I could not be happier. I’ve enjoyed 10 straight victories this year, it is a blessing to get another today.”
The Czech Barbora Spotakova won the women’s javelin with a throw of 66.76m, with two Chinese athletes Lingwei Li and Huihui Lyu taking silver and bronze.
