Sensational Schippers/Proctor Gets Silver


After switching from the heptathlon, Dafne Schippers has become the Flying Dutchwoman. She took gold in 21.63, a Dutch and European record. Only Florence Griffith-Joyner and Marion Jones have ever run faster! Elaine Thompson was a close second in a PB 21.66. Dina Asher-Smith took fourth in her third championship PB, breaking Kathy Cook’s 31 year-old British record with 22.07. She becomes the world’s fastest ever teenager!


It looked like Shara Proctor had secured gold in the 3rd round with a British record and barrier breaking 7.07m. Then Tianna Bartoletta snatched victory with a last jump of 7.14. It had been ten years since the American had first become World champion. Katarina Johnson Thompson failed to make the last eight and called it the worst week of her life.
