We’re over halfway through the World Championships! Chris Chavez, Kyle Merber, Jasmine Todd, and Mitch Dyer are back to dive into the biggest moments of the night. Day 6 of the World Champs delivered – we saw Jamaica come in clutch for the sprint events, a fast men’s 200m semifinal after the golf cart crashed on the way to the stadium, and Femke Bol dominated the 400m hurdles.

Some of the best events from Day 6 include:

– Women’s 400m hurdles final: Femke Bol came back better than ever in the 400m hurdles with an astonishing 51.70 victory.

– Men’s 400m final: Antonio Watson won the men’s 400m in 44.22 + Quincy Hall set a personal best of 44.37 for 3rd place and his first World medal.

– Men’s long jump final: Miltiadis Tentoglou once again came up big on his final attempt by leaping 8.52 meters to claim gold by 2 centimeters.

– Men’s 200m semifinal: After a golf cart crash on the way to the stadium, Noah Lyles threw down a 19.76 to run the fastest qualifying time for the final.

– Women’s 200m semifinal: A rematch is on deck for Shericka Jackson, Sha’Carri Richardson, and Marie-Joseé Ta Lou in the women’s 200m final.
