Charlton shatters 60m hurdles world record, Duplantis holds on to pole vault title

Devynne Charlton, the Bahamian runner, not only secured her first-ever title at the World Athletics Indoor Championships but also set a new world record in the women’s 60m hurdles with a remarkable time of 7.65 seconds. Despite qualifying in seventh place, Charlton delivered a flawless performance in the final, leaving her rivals behind. Cyrena Samba-Mayela of France took silver, and Pia Skrzyszowska of Poland secured the bronze.

In another highlight, Mondo Duplantis successfully defended his pole vault title with a clearance of 6.05m but fell short of breaking the world record at 6.24m. Sam Kendricks from the United States made a dazzling return to form, securing a silver medal, while Emmanouil Karalis of Greece took the bronze.

Femke Bol, the world champion in the 400m hurdles, showcased her talent by anchoring the Netherlands to a gold medal in the women’s 4x400m relay. Alexander Doom, an individual 400m champion, led Belgium to victory in the men’s 4x400m relay.

New Zealand celebrated a double dose of gold medal glory, with Geordie Beamish winning the men’s 1500m final in a brilliant comeback from fifth place. Hamish Kerr had earlier triumphed in the high jump event. These achievements propelled New Zealand to third place in the final medals table, with the USA claiming the top spot and Belgium securing second place.
