Saw TT's Elcock in the 100m heats. Tried hard but could not make it. Came in 4th. Wish him all the best in his endeavors.

Impressed with Tebogo from Botswana and Seville from JA in the 100. US had to settle for 3rd in the mixed  4x400 relays as the Dominican Rep. ran a most impressive race  to beat the Netherlands and US. Very impressed with Femke Bol from the Netherlands. She is a good 400 runner. Also the Dominican runner who ran the US runner. Impressive!!!!

The US ran 12 3 in the men's 100 final. It was very close for Kerley. Michelle is in the women's semi-final next. Good luck to her.

Saw Richards in the 200. Looking good. But he will have to go below 20 to make the final. That 200 has some beasts.Lyles ran 19.98 in his race. Then is there is Knighton, Kerley, DeGrassi, dude from DR looking real good, and Blake. I saw a guy name Harrison running for us. Never seen him before. He is US born I was told. He 23. His time was 20.54. Maybe if he could get another 3 with some speed we could have a relay team by the time Paris 2024.

Sydney was phenomenal last night. Won the the race in extraordinary WR time. This young lady has already accomplished what some athletes have tried do in their TF lifetime. At this moment she is out of this world. Blessings, Young Lady. Fly like an eagle.

Shaunee Miller was superb in winning the  400m.  The Barbadian girl won bronze in 400. Congrats to the Bajans.

The mens 400m was also out of this world. Norman held off the phenomenal Kirani James(what an athlete, Blessings to Grenada). Van Newkirk  just did not have it. He faded in the final 80m. The meet is sensational. Paris 2024. Good color commentary by Ato and Sanya. Blessings.

Jereem ran the 2nd fastest 2nd leg, great effort but we couldn't keep up with those guys.  Keep on working.

Was the order of assigned relay legs correct?

The 3rd leg was the letdown. I heard that this is the runner's first big meet. Only 19. The good thing is there is the worlds again next year and then 2024. He has enough time to improve. Good Luck and Blessings.

Who ran the preceding rounds? How many runners were involved in the entire process?

From TT Newsday

THE TRINIDAD and Tobago menís 4x400-metre relay team advanced to the finals of the event at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, US on Saturday.

The TT team included Dwight St Hillaire, Jereem Richards, Asa Guevara and Kashief King. Running in lane two of heat one, the TT quartet clocked three minutes, 02.75 seconds (3:02.75) for fourth place. It was enough to qualify for Sundayís final at 10.35 pm (TT time).

The top three in each of the two heats plus the next two fastest teams earned a place in the final.

The US won heat one in 2:58.96, Japan were second in 3:01.53 and Jamaica third in 3:01.59.

TT were third halfway through the second leg with Richards in possession of the baton.

During the third leg, TT had work to do to finish as one of the three automatic qualifiers in the heat as Guevara was in fourth place.

With 200m left in the race, King made a move and was in second place briefly. However, Japan and Jamaica made a late surge to finish ahead of TT.

Qualifying from heat two were Belgium (3:01.96), Czech Republic (3:02.42), Poland (3:02.51) and France (3:03.13).

TT womenís long jumper Tyra Gittens did not advance to the finals of the event.

Gittens needed to jump 6.75 metres or at least finish in the top 12 among the field of over 25 athletes to qualify for the final.

Competing in Group B alongside 12 other athletes, Gittens jumped 6.22m on her first attempt, 6.44m on her second and fouled her third and final jump.

It was only enough to finish tenth in Group B and 19th overall.

German Malaika Mihambo ended first in Group B with a leap of 6.84m.

American Quanesha Burks won Group A and has the best overall jump heading into the final with a 6.86m effort.

The finals will be held on Sunday from 8.50 pm TT time.



From TT Newsday

TRINIDAD AND Tobago finished without a medal at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, United States.

On the final day on Sunday, the TT men's mile (4x400-metre) relay team placed fifth in the final, in a season's best time of three minutes 0.03 seconds, but they will leave the US with no silverware after the ten-day competition.

The TT team, featured Dwight St Hillaire, Jereem Richards, Shakeem McKay and Asa Guevara, were drawn in lane nine.

St Hillaire, who ran the first leg, was in the middle of the pack after the first leg, but Richards had an outstanding run, as TT moved up to second spot, behind the United States.

McKay struggled to keep up the pace in the third leg, as the US opened up a massive lead, while Jamaica and Belgium challenged for the silver.

Guevara fought valiantly in the final stages, but the US had long secured the gold medal (two minutes 56.17 seconds), with Jamaica (2:58.58), Belgium (2:58.72) and Japan (2:59.51) trailing.

Rounding off the field were Botswana (3:00.14), France (3:01.35) and Czech Republic (3:01.63).

This was the second time TT made a final at the World Championships; Richards placed sixth in the men's 200m final on Thursday.

The next World Championships will take place in Budapest, Hungary from August 19-27, 2023.
