What to Watch this Weekend at the 2022 World Track and Field Championships :

This weekend’s coverage of the 2022 World Track and Field Championships kicks off on Friday night at 8:30 PM ET on USA Network with the highly anticipated Women’s 400m Hurdles Final featuring Tokyo Olympic gold and silver medalists Sydney McLaughlin (Dunellen, NJ) and Dalilah Muhammad (Queens, NY). McLaughlin shattered the world record for the third time in the last year at the U.S. Championships back in June, clocking 51.41 seconds. Muhammad, who qualified for this year’s Worlds on a bye, did not compete at the U.S. Championships due to an injury but looks to defend her world title. Femke Bol, the Tokyo Olympic bronze medalist from the Netherlands, will likely be the top international challenger in this event.

Saturday night’s coverage features the Men’s and Women’s 4x100m Relay Finals. On the women’s side, Jamaica is the reigning Olympic champion and defending world champion thanks to the powerhouse group of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Shericka Jackson, Elaine Thompson-Herah, and Kemba Nelson. Fraser-Pryce, Jackson, and Thompson-Herah swept the podium in the women’s 100m earlier this week. The U.S. women took bronze in 2019 and silver in Tokyo and should contend for a medal.

On the men’s side, the U.S. has historically struggled with the mechanics in this race but has an unrivaled depth of individual talent. Squads for this event will be announced no later than one hour in advance.

Sunday night’s coverage features the Women’s 800m Final where 20-year-old, Tokyo Olympic champion Athing Mu (Trenton, New Jersey), looks to add a world title to her trophy case, which would be the first world title for the U.S. in this event.

The Men’s and Women’s 4x400m Relay Finals will also take place concluding the 2022 Track and Field World Championships. The U.S. women have dominated this event over the last 25 years and have won gold in the last seven straight Olympics dating back to 1996 in Atlanta. Additionally, the U.S. has also won the world title in the women’s 4x400m at six of the last seven World Championships.

Eliud Kipchoge breaks marathon world record in Berlin

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge broke his own world record in winning the Berlin Marathon, clocking 2:01:09 to lower the previous record time of 2:01:39 he set in the German capital in 2018.

Kipchoge, 37 and a two-time Olympic champion, earned his 15th win in 17 career marathons to bolster his claim as the greatest runner in history over 26.2 miles.

His pacing was not ideal. Kipchoge slowed in the final miles, running 61:18 for the second half after going out in an unprecedented 59:51 for the first 13.1 miles. He still won by 4:49 over Kenyan Mark Korir.

“I was planning to go through it [the halfway mark] 60:50, 60:40,” Kipchoge said. “My legs were running actually very fast. I thought, let me just try to run two hours flat, but all in all, I am happy with the performance.

“We went too fast [in the first half]. It takes energy from the muscles. … There’s still more in my legs [to possibly lower the record again].”

Ethiopian Tigist Assefa won the women’s race in 2:15:37, the third-fastest time in history for somebody who ran one prior marathon in 2:34:01. Only Brigid Kosgei (2:14:14 in Chicago in 2019) and Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25 in London in 2003) have gone faster.

American record holder Keira D’Amato, who entered as the top seed, was sixth in 2:21:48. D’Amato, who went nearly a decade between competitive races after college, owns the American record of 2:19:12 and now also the 10th-best time in U.S. history.

“Today wasn’t my best day ever, but it was the best I could do today,” she said in a text message, according to Race Results Weekly, adding that she briefly stopped and walked late in the race.

The last eight instances the men’s marathon world record has been broken, it has come on the pancake-flat roads of Berlin. It began in 2003, when Kenyan Paul Tergat became the first man to break 2:05.

The world record was 2:02:57 — set by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 — until Kipchoge broke it for the first time four years ago. The following year, Kipchoge became the first person to cover 26.2 miles in under two hours, clocking 1:59:40 in a non-record-eligible showcase rather than a race.

Kipchoge’s focus going forward is trying to become the first runner to win three Olympic marathon titles in Paris in 2024. He also wants to win all six annual World Marathon Majors. He’s checked off four of them, only missing Boston (run in April) and New York City (run every November).

The U.S. goes for its fourth consecutive title at the FIBA World Cup in Sydney — and eighth global gold in a row overall when including the Olympics.

A’ja Wilson, a two-time WNBA MVP, and Breanna Stewart, the Tokyo Olympic MVP, headline a U.S. roster that, for the first time since 2000, includes neither Sue Bird (retired) nor Diana Taurasi (injured).

The new-look team includes nobody over the age of 30 for the first time since 1994, before the U.S. began its dynasty at the 1996 Atlanta Games. The Americans have won 52 consecutive games between worlds and the Olympics dating to the 2006 Worlds bronze-medal game.

The field also includes host Australia, the U.S.’ former primary rival, and Olympic silver medalist Japan.

Nigeria, which played the U.S. the closest of any foe in Tokyo (losing by nine points), isn’t present after its federation withdrew the team over governance issues. Spain, ranked second in the world, failed to qualify.
