On the schedule for Thursday are six finals, which includes the men’s and women’s 400m hurdles, as well as the the men’s High Jump finals.
In the women’s 400m hurdles it will be American Lashinda Demus going up against the Jamaican pair of Kaliese Spencer, the favourite for the gold, but ran poorly in the semis and defending champion Melaine Walker, whose semis performance sees her getting lane eight.
The men’s race will see Americans Bershawn Jackson and Angelo Taylor taking on Puerto Rico’s Javier Culson, South Africa’s L.J. van Zyl and Great Britain’s David Greene.
Thursday’s action will also see the women’s 200m heats getting under way, while the men’s 4x400m relay heats will also be contested.
If the false start rule is amended to the previous rule,
sprinters, in order to get the best start, will once again try to anticipate the starting gun. As we all know, that leads to numerous false starts and no one wants to go back to that agony.
