Viewer’s Guide To Day 9 Of The IAAF World Championships

Nine long days of epic competition concludes on Sunday in Daegu.  Betty Heidler of Germany is the hammer throw favorite having thrown the world record of 79.42 meters earlier this year.  Phillips Idowu seeks to defend his World title heading into the 2012 Olympics in his home nation.  The men’s 5000 meters should be a showdown between Bernard Lagat and Mo Farah but the Kenyans and Ethiopians can’t be counted out either.  The women’s 800 meters is wide open.  Americans Maggie Vessey and Alysia Montano  are certainly medal contenders.  Jamaica and the U.S. are favorites in both 4×1′s but will need to pass the baton well in both the prelims and final to make it to the finish line.
