Mixed 1600m relay wins after ‘bad luck’
Pemki Voll (R) of the Netherlands falls before the finish line in the mixed 1600 meters relay at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, on Tuesday. 카지노사이트 The Dutch athlete, who had been running in first place, narrowly missed out on gold (top photo). But Ball made no mistake in the women’s 400-meter hurdles five days later, crossing the line first to win her first world title.
She only had to fall once before the finish line. This time, she crossed the finish line on two legs and immediately smiled.
Femke Bole, 23, of the Netherlands, won the gold medal in the women’s 400-meter hurdles final in 51.70 seconds at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, on Friday. It came five days after she ran a world-record pace as the last Dutch runner in the mixed 1600-meter relay before collapsing five meters before the finish line.
“Before this race, everyone was picking me to win,” 온라인카지노 said Ball. But as we saw in the mixed relay, things don’t always go as expected. Until I got the baton (in the mixed relay), everyone thought we (the Netherlands) were going to win gold easily, but it turned out differently. Before this race, I was determined to stay strong and run my race,” said Ball.
The original favorite in the women’s 400m hurdles is Sydney McLaughlin (USA), 24, who won gold at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and last year’s World Championships in Eugene, USA. She also holds the world record in the event (50.68). But with McLaughlin out of the race with a knee injury, Ball’s victory seemed like a foregone conclusion.
The lid was lifted. When Ball clocked 52.95 in the preliminaries, it was said that she hadn’t gotten over the shock of hybridism. But in the final, Ball was the only athlete in the field to cross the line in under 51 seconds to win her first individual title at a major meet. His time of 51.70 was just 0.25 seconds behind his personal best (51.45) set in April of this year.
“Everyone dreams of winning,” said Ball, who has gone from always chasing the top spot to now being chased by the competition. You can’t win all the time, but you try to improve every year,” said Ball, 카지노사이트존 “and to be able to step up and be a world champion is amazing.”
