World Championships in Athletics (03.10.2019) 10/3/19 1:40 PM Sven Scharf Mujinga Kambundji was so happy about bronze for herself and her country yesterday that she could not wrap the Swiss flag close enough.

Kristin Gierisch, with 14.61 meters in the year's best in Europe, had to cancel because of an injury. The legitimate hopes for gold may well make Yulimar Rojas (center) from Venezuela. Two years ago in London she won her first big title. Only at four weeks, the 24-year-old is 15.41 meters, stopped gestuell and jumbled and has thus missed the world record by only nine centimeters. No other jumper has surpassed the 15-meter mark this season. The Diamond League final won the Jamaican Shanieka Ricketts, she should be the biggest competitor Rojas'. Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen from Colombia repeatedly struggled with injuries. It remains to be seen if she can jump for gold. Other medal candidates are Liadagmis Povea (Cuba), the American Keturah Orji and the European Indoor Championships Ana Peleteiro from Spain.

Then they are still the javelin throw and 800 meters ahead. In the duel of the big gold favorites, the Briton Katarina Johnson-Thompson (4138 points) leads after the first day ahead of the Belgian Nafissatou Thiam (4042). Third is Kendell Williams (3855) from the USA. A German starter is not in the field. World Championships in Athletics (03.10.2019) 10/3/19 1:20 PM Florian Pütz For the decathletes five disciplines will be on the second day again: starting at 15.35 with the runs over 110 meters hurdles. Later followed by discus throw, pole vault, javelin and the final run over 1500 meters. Somewhat unexpectedly, world record holder Kevin Mayer (4483 points) does not lead after the first day, he is in third place behind the Canadians Pierce Lepage (4486) and Damian Warner (4513). That could change quickly due to the short distance. World Championships in Athletics (03.10.2019) 10/3/19 1:08 PM Florian Pütz And me for the first time.
