Fraser Price Leads 100m Sweep-Taipei Times

In the twinkling of an eye:
Devon Allen of the Philadelphia Eagles shattered the 100-meter hurdles dream when he was 0.01 seconds too early in his disqualification, which he described as “irritating.”

On Sunday, Shelly-Ann Fraser Price led the Jamaican clean sweep in the women’s 100m final of the World Athletics Championships, with American athletes winning four gold medals and continuing to clean up on the home ground.

Fraser Price won his fifth world title after setting a time of 10.67 seconds to the same three athletes, Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson Hera, who won the Olympic podium in Tokyo.

“I can’t even imagine how many times I’ve been frustrated and bounced, and I’m here again,” Fraser Price said.

“I have this talent and feel that I am endowed with this talent, continuing to do so at the age of 35, having a baby, still giving birth, and hopefully inspiring women to be able to travel on their own. “

Olympic champion Katie Nagiotte won the women’s pole vault after her compatriot Sandi Morris won the silver medal three times in a row, clearing 4.85 meters.

This was the third consecutive gold medal at a women’s field event in the United States after Brooke Andersen won the hammer throw earlier that day and Chase Ealey’s shot put was successful on Saturday.

Grant Hollowway of the United States held the 110-meter hurdles title in the chaotic final where Jamaican Olympic champion Hansle Parchment was injured in a warm-up and Devon Allen was disqualified for a false start.

Allen, who set the third fastest time at the June event and was one of Eugene’s favorites, was 0.01 seconds too early.

“It feels good to win in front of the spectators at home,” said Hollowway, who returned in 13.03 seconds ahead of his compatriots Tray Cunningham and Spain’s Asiel Martinez.

Allen, a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, described his false start as “frustrating.”

“You train all year round for one competition that lasts 13 seconds, and that’s it,” Allen said. “It happens and I learn from it — and I make sure it doesn’t react as fast as next time.”

In the morning session, hammer thrower Andersen threw 77.56m to win the gold medal, and fellow countryman Johnny Kasana Boyd won the bronze medal. Camry Rogers finished second in Canada’s first World Hammer Medal.

Tamirat Tola won the men’s marathon, cleared more than a minute in the world championship record time of 2 hours 5 minutes 37 seconds, and finished 1 to 2 in Ethiopia. Mocineto Gueremeu won Silver and Bashir Abdi won Bronze.

Ugandan world record holder Joshua Cheptegay blocked all challengers on the final lap to maintain the 10,000m crown at 27: 27.43.

Kenya’s Stanley Waisaka claimed silver, and Cheptegay’s compatriot Jacob Kiprimo claimed bronze.
