The long-established Commonwealth Games will be bringing in something new.
The quadrennial event that opens Thursday in Birmingham will be the first multi-sport international meet to host more medal events for women than for men, and is running in tandem with its largest ever para sport program.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — For the U.S. women’s relay team, this was a shock.
For the men -- more of the same.
The women pulled a stunner over Jamaica in the 4x100 relay at world championships Saturday, while the favored men finished second after the latest sloppy baton exchange in what has been a ritual since before anyone on this team was born.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Shaunae Miller-Uibo ran away with the 400-meter title at world championships. Now, she may be walking away from the one-lap event for good.
From now on, the sprinter from the Bahamas will dabble more in the 200-meter realm.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Jamaica's Shericka Jackson can finally go watch the replay. The one of the race where she gave away her chance to be an Olympic champion.
She's now a world champion, a more-than-satisfying reward after a year in which she trained with the goal of never making the same mistake again.
ROME (AP) — Allyson Felix had “no regrets” after a seventh-place finish in the 200 meters of what was likely her final Diamond League meet Thursday.
PARIS (AP) — Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah won the 100 meters in 10.72 seconds at the Diamond League meeting in Paris without in-form Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to rival her on Saturday.
Thompson-Herah quickly raced clear with a legal tailwind at the Charlety Stadium to finish 0.25 ahead of fellow Jamaican Shericka Jackson, the Olympic bronze medalist.
