The 2023 World Athletics Championships are now nearly over. We’ve witnessed eight fantastic days of top-class action in the National Athletics Centre, located in the Hungarian capital of Budapest. Before we get the competition blues, it’s first time to look ahead to the ninth and final day.
Super Saturday absolutely lived up to its name at the 2023 World Athletics Championships, that’s for sure. The US sprinters dazzled the late-evening crowd in both the women’s and men’s 4×100 relays, with star performers Noah Lyles and Sha’Carri Richardson both shining as usual. World-record holder and Olympic Champion Armand Duplantis once again put on a show in the men’s pole vault, winning in fine style, before so nearly beating his own world record with his final jump.
Great Britain’s Ben Pattison, who at just 21 years of age, in his first World Championships, ran a blinder to scoop a bronze medal in the men’s 800 metres, while the Great British women also performed admirably to claim bronze in the women’s 4×100 relay final. There was yet more glory for the US in the field too as the almighty Chase Ealey successfully defended her world title in the women’s shot put.
The final day kicks off with the men’s marathon, before we head to the stadium in the evening for the final of the women’s high jump, plus the final of the men’s javelin. On the track there’s the men’s 5000 metres, the women’s 800 metres, as well as more relay action.
