Sha’ Carri Richardson stunned the duo of Jamaican Shericka Jackson and Shelly- Ann Fraser- Pryce to run the fastest 100m in World Athletics Championships history to claim her first gold in 10.65s.

The American taking of 0.02 seconds off the previous championship best set by Fraser-Pryce at the last year’s event.

She completes the American sweep of the 100m after Noah Lyles had won the men’s 100m final to clinch the gold medal.

The Fraser –Pryce was favourite by some pundits but Sha’ Carri was excellent running from the last lane which has mostly been tagged a difficult lane to run in the 100m. But she made the difference with a perfect start and increased the rhythm from the 50m mark cruising ahead to clinch the title in a close race.

The Jamaican duo won the silver and bronze medal respectively.

Burkina Faso’s Hugues Fabrics Zango won the triple jump gold an improving from his silver medal won in Oregon last year. Competition favourite and teenager Jaydon Hibbert was forced to drop after pulling up in his first jump, and obviously Zango was the man and he didn’t disappoint to win the championship title.

Zango jumped 17.64m to claim the top spot ahead of Cuban pair Lazaro Martinez and Cristian Napoles who won silver and bronze respectively.

In the discus final Sweden’s Daniel Stahl sealed the podium with a 71.46m throw, this brilliantly put the Olympic Champion ahead him ahead. The landed throw of 70.02m by Kristian Ceh of Slovenia was looking like the decider before Stahl trick- up his sleeve and produced a new championship record of 71.46m to clinch the gold.
