After the historic American trio in the men’s 100m and Jamaican in the women’s, Ethiopia’s Tamirat Tula in the second part of the marathon, Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei in the 10,000m, or the Spanish good performances with bronze from Asier Martínez in the 110m hurdles and three-seeded for the 1500m final (Mario García Romo, Mo Cater and Ignacio Fontes) continue to Eugene (Oregon). And the fourth day of the World Cup arrives, loaded with an agenda of strong emotions, in which the Spanish presence will be.
Today’s women’s marathon between the forests and trails of Eugene will open with a new edition of The Battle of Kenya and Ethiopia. The 200-meter races should give clues as to whether the United States will be able to repeat the 100 meters in the men’s dual hectic scale. After midnight, in the female version of the audition, Jamaican Sherika Jackson and American Abby Steiner will have to prove their roles as candidates.
Later, Venezuela’s Yulimar Rojas, the undisputed favorite in the triple jump, will once again attempt to break her own world record in the 16 metres. Striker Jaen Sebastian Martos, who arrived in good shape after winning the Spanish championship, as he has already shown in the series, will go into the 3000 hurdles final with Dani Ars of Burgos. Rounding out the day will be Marta Perez of Soriana, who qualified for the 1500m final on her merits.
