Jamaican Roots Athlete Wins 400-M Final For US

Jamaican Roots Athlete Wins 400-M Final For US

On Tuesday, Deajah Stevens, who elected to forgo her final year of eligibility at OR, won her 200 heat and will race again on Thursday in the semifinal.

Thirty meters from the finish line, Miller-Uibo winced, looked down and her stride fell apart with an apparent injury.

It was the 14th world championship medal of the Santa Clarita resident's career, tying her with Jamaican runners Merlene Ottey and Usain Bolt for the most world championship medals. Despite the disappointment, Jackson said she had given the race her all. "I wanted to come better than that but I worked for fifth therefore there is nothing else I could have done".

Meanwhile, for the first time in six championships, Jamaica will be without a men's 200m finalist after their main hope Yohan Blake crashed out at the semi-final stage.

Wayde van Niekerk remains on course for an individual double, but only made the 200m final as a fastest loser after clocking 20.28 seconds, while Isaac Makwala put a tumultuous 48 hours behind by advancing after being given a second chance by the IAAF.

Guam's Homeland Security Adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defences are in place for such threats. North Korean state media reported North Korea was considering a strike on Guam to contain USA bases there.

"I should have won that race easily but my leg wouldn't allowed me to", Blake lamented.

"I just tried to make a move, and it wasn't there", Felix said. "Coming to these championships, I really did not think about a medal".

Trinidadian Kyle Greaux (20.65) and Guyana's Winston George (20.74) both also missed out on the final. She has been a star since winning the 200 world championship in 2005 and helped set the world record in the 4x100 (40.82) at the 2012 Olympics in the same stadium. Gong, the 2012 Olympic silver medalist, took fourth in Rio behind Carter, who became the first U.S. Olympic women's shot put champ.

Thomas-Dodd said she was still happy with the end result. I'm glad I came through tonight and now I can get ready for the final.

"The 10,000m did take a lot out of me but I am okay now".
