We’ve now witnessed five days of premier athletics action from the National Athletics Centre in Budapest, but fear not, there’s still lots left to come from the Hungarian capital. We now look ahead to Thursday, which will be the sixth day of the 2023 World Athletics Championships.
There was plenty to get excited about on day five. Josh Kerr triumphed for Great Britain & Ireland in dramatic style, coming with a late run to beat favourite Jakob Ingebritgsen, ensuring that the world title stays in Britain after last year’s winner Jake Wightman was unable to defend his title due to injury. We saw an epic battle in the pole vault until eventually Nina Kennedy and Katie Moon shared the gold, while the hurdling viking Karsten Warholm was typically superb in the men’s 400m hurdles, winning his third world title, becoming the first man to do so in that event.
Not only did the crowd in attendance see lots of action that got them up off their seats on Wednesday, but they’ve also got lots to look forward to on day six, as have viewers at home.
On day six, we have the heats for the men’s 5000 metres, while the first final of the day will be the men’s long jump, which sets us up for another evening of finals, including the men’s 800 metres.
