ESTELLE BELGRAVE REPORTS ON THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

TELEMMGLPICT000212127209_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqD3d2dmOlWYuQkR76XZjLQDSn4mbJSlWY2OEDy_ToFOc

It is a known fact that athletics is a popular sport and as a result of this, participation within the sport has thereby increased by 36% in the last 5 years. A contributing factor is the recent Olympics held in Rio De Janerio. London 2012 engaged fans on a global spectrum- reiterating the development and the bright side of the sport.

Nevertheless, it is clear that during the IAAF world athletics championships held in Doha that the world was watching but no one was physically there…. On day 2 of the championships ground-breaking events occurred; including 100m athlete Christian Coleman becoming world champion at age 23 despite controversy circulating around the idea of doping. The 23-year-old athlete missed two drugs test within the past year, hinting accusations of being “a drugs cheat”.

After the athlete’s win, he celebrated running a time of 9.76 seconds but (as it was broadcasted) the crows within the Khalifa stadium were nowhere to be seen. This sparked huge speculation around the question: should these championships been held here? With statics showing that crowds hit under 21,000. The marathon began early in the morning, in spite of hot temperatures hitting 30 degrees. Faces of fatigue surfaced with more than 5 athletes dropping out. This ignited outrage because high class athletes shouldn’t be allowed to compete in conditions such as Doha’s. Athlete Ruth Chepngetch won the women’s marathon. Key events in the championships plummeted as the competition progressed. Dina Asher- Smith dominated her field in the 200m beating two American athletes with a time of 21.88 a national record. In a competitive field Dina placed second behind Jamaican athlete Shelly Anne-Frasier who had recently given birth to her first child.

There was accordance with near misses. Seven major British athletes missed out on opportunities for medal contention. Adam Gemili placed 4th in the men’s 200m with a time of 19.83 seconds. In an interview after the race he told BBC news reporter Jeanette that he “ran like an amateur”. The 25-year-old insisted that he had let a lot of people down. Despite this the athlete felt a good sense of optimism saying he had to “take the positives even though he had been labelled a relay runner”. The stereotype of Adam was later proved wrong on day 9 of the championships- running leg 1 in the 4x100m relay. The team progressed with athlete Nathanael battling Americas Christian Coleman taking silver. There is no doubt that his future is looking bright and with such determination only good things will come. Also, in the women’s pole vault Holly Bradshaw did not shy away from what she was capable of. In the final, she jumped a final height of 4.87 meters away from medal contention. Throughout the field, during these championships it is with great credence that the best of the best (within British athletes) will be attending the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Though, every championships or Olympic games faces some challenges- a prime example being Rio de Janerio 2016 where two of the Olympic pools turned green. In Qatar, the problems faced were of which that could have been prevented at one point the attendance reached an all-time low of 21,000 in comparison to London 2017 where figures hit 305,000 in ticket sales. Many would argue that the attendance of the championships devastated fans globally. During the championships 23 world leads were produced, 6 championship records and 3 world records. For some, the championships being held in Doha is not the norm but Lord Coe declares that the performances from some athletes were “the best we’ve ever had” claiming “it needs to make social change and a shift in political structures”. This analytic perspective from the president of the IAAF is correct with it being proven that participation within the sport after the 2012 Olympics increasing- with that an aim is for Doha to follow. Former athlete Michael Johnson argued that overall the “negatives outweighed the positives” and that “athletes would say the same”.

To outline the championships, the USA claimed a total of 29 medals with 14 of them being gold, finishing top of the medals table. Both Kenya and Jamaica both ended the championships with a total of 11 medals, followed by China with 9 medals, Ethiopia with 8 and Great Britain with 5. Germany landed 6 medals with countries such as Japan, Netherlands, Uganda and Poland with less than 14 medals between them.
