Viewer’s Guide To Day 6 Of The IAAF World Championships

Things get firing again on Thursday after a well-needed day off.  USC grad Jesse Williams is the world leader in the high jump and represents America’s first legitimate gold medal threat in years.  The women’s triple jump is a fairly wide open affair with veterans Yargeris Savigne of Cuba and Olha Saladuha of Ukraine among the favorites.  The men’s steeplechase is typically dominated by the Kenyans but Frenchmen Bob Tahri and Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad are capable of breaking up a Kenyan sweep.  Morgan Uceny can make up for U.S. disappointment in the distance events thus far with a win in the 1500 meters but two-time defending champion Maryam Jamal will have something to say about that.  Jenny Simpson is also in the final and should not be overlooked.  Long hurdles favorite Kaliese Spencer looked great until the semi-final where she only qualified for the final by time.  American Lashinda Demus looks to win her first individual World title after runner-up finishes in 2005 and 2009.  Much like the triple jump, there is no real favorite in the men’s 400 meter hurdles.  Bershawn Jackson looked best in the semi-finals.
