Oregon (USA), 24 July. (dpa/EP) –

Canada won the gold medal in the men’s 4 x 100 at the World Cup Oregon (US), and denied the US team a double in discipline, after winning the women’s local quartet.

Olympic champion Andre de Grasse (six Olympic medals and five world medals), who sat in the 200-meter race in Eugene after recently testing positive for COVID-19, outpaced local athlete Marvin Brassie on his back to catapult Canada toward gold, stopping the clock at 37.48, and Hayward Field froze, who was already expecting another success from the athletes.

Thus, the United States, the silver medalist of the seven hundredth of the Canadians, did not know how to confirm their favouritism in the event, with world 200-meter champion Noah Lyles in their ranks. Great Britain took the bronze in 37.83.

Tokyo Olympic champion Emmanuel Currier of Kenya, for his part, won his first world title in the 800m, after completing some impressive final meters of the event, clocking a time of 1:43.71, the best time of the season. .

Algerian Damel Sedjati won the silver thanks to a strong finish that gave him the lead by 14 percent over Canadian Marco Arup (1:44.28), who had to take the bronze after leading most of the race.

In the women’s 5000m, gold medalist Godaf Tsegay in the 1500m took the gold in a cautious race set on the last lap, finishing in 14:46.29. Kenya’s Beatrice Chebet was also silver, while Dawit Seyoum closed the podium with a time of 14:47.36.

Dutch superstar Sivan Hassan, chasing one goal and two long distances, emptied himself in the 400m final, limping after the last corner, and finished sixth with a time of 14:48.12.
