Day 5: Women’s Steeplechase Heats

American steeplechase queen, Emma Coburn, didn’t advance through to the finals of the steeplechase. Injuring a hamstring a couple of weeks before the tournament meant that Coburn misses her first global final in the last 8 years. American representation in the final will be in the hands of Courtney Wayment-Smith after Krissy Gear also missed out. Coburn’s absence is the biggest shock of the event so far.

Day 5: Men’s 1500m Final

In a shock result for the second year, Jakob Ingebrigsten is beaten by a Scostman and a member of Edinburgh Athletics Club. Last year, in Eugene, Jake Wightman took the crown.  This year it was the turn of his childhood clubmate Josh Kerr. The race which saw Ingebrigtsen near the front, came down to the line again. Kerr, Nordas and Ingebrigsten approached the line but it was Kerr who had the strength over the last few metres and put himself clear in what was a very popular victory in the stadium. Crossing the line in second, the disappointment was clear on the face of the Norwegian pre-race favourite. Bronze went to Narve Nordas, also of Norway.


Josh Kerr 3:29.38 (SB)

Jakob Ingebrigsten 3:29.65

Narve Nordas 3:29.68
