USA tops the medal table – Budapester Zeitung

The closing ceremony of the IAAF World Championships took place in Budapest on Sunday, and the baton was solemnly handed over to the next venue, Tokyo. The United States has won 29 medals and leads the medal table ahead of Canada, Spain and Jamaica.

No sooner had Sunday’s competition program finished than the organizers prepared for the closing ceremony, as the mascot Youhuu entertained the crowd. “The 40th anniversary of the first World Championships in Athletics required an impressive host. We found that with Budapest. Athletics competitions are held here at the highest level. This is an ambitious city, an ambitious country. Hungary has been an excellent host, and I’m sure they can deliver “An impressive Olympic show. I’m rooting for the country to apply. I can’t remember a World Cup in a better setting.” Sebastian Co (p.), President of the World Association of Athletics Federations World Athletics (WA). The most important is the full stands. He noted that most of the tickets bought by foreigners were owned by British, German, American, French and Spanish fans.

Ukraine took the last gold medal

With the final attempt in the women’s high jump, the competition program at the IAAF World Championships in Budapest officially ended. The last failed attempt was the share of Ukraine’s Yaroslava Mahucheh, who completed it knowing that she had already secured the world title.

The men’s and women’s 4 x 400m relay concluded the World Championships in front of a full audience. The quartet of Quincy Hall, Vernon Norwood, Justin Robinson and Ray Benjamin from the USA won the men’s event by a wide margin and world best time of the year ahead of the French and Britons.

A great relief for Paul

The biggest question in the women’s final was whether Vemke Poll could help the Dutch relay team win after she fell while leading in the last meters of the first day of the mixed relay and lost the baton. This time the Jamaicans and the British really applied the pressure. Dutch runner Evelyn Salberg handed over the responsibility to Likke Clavier, who finished third by a large margin, and caught up with her. He was followed by Chatelain-Peters, who dropped back again, and Paul, who reached the final of the 400m by 15m. Halfway through the race, it seemed inconceivable that she would be able to catch up to her rivals, but then she put on an incredible sprint and beat both of them in the last few metres.
