Miller-Uibo bounces back to ease into 200m final

Miller-Uibo bounces back to ease into 200m final”

Dutch woman Dafine Schippers retained the women's 200 meters title at the World Athletics Championships here on Friday. "I worked so hard in the last years and last year was not the easiest for me".

Ivana Spanovic seemed to have produced a medal-winning leap on her final long jump, but she was given a much shorter mark - seemingly because the number bib on her back dragged into the sand and likely cost her precious centimeters.

"It's great, especially with a gold medal, I am very pleased".

"I didn't jump seven metres for six years", said Klishina, competing as an Authorised Neutral Athlete as Russian Federation remains banned by the IAAF, athletics' world governing body.

"My secret is enjoying the sport and enjoying my racing".

Emma Coburn led Courtney Frerichs in a USA one-two in the 3,000m steeplechase.

Semenya, the 2009 world champion, won her semi-final heat in 1:58.90.

It has not been a stellar year for Jamaica so far.

But defending champion Danielle Williams of Jamaica is out after a poor start and hitting five hurdles.

Best Australian performance: Sally Pearson assumes favouritism for the 100m hurdles with a scintillating run of 12.53 seconds in the semis.

"I would never have believed this could happen", Frerichs said. I am so grateful for having a championships like this.

Already a bronze medallist in the 1500m, Caster Semenya is looking strong over her favoured distance of 800m.

Ta Lou had lost the 100m final by one hundredth of a second after failing to dip on the line and though she did lean this time she was just behind Schippers in 22.08, still a national record.

"I did all I could in that race". "I just needed to keep my muscles moving".

The two women who joined Semenya on the podium in Rio de Janeiro a year ago - Francine Niyonsaba and Margaret Wambui - both came through the slowest of the three semis as the top two.

Pawel Fajdek won gold for Poland in the hammer, throwing a best of 79.81m.
