Athletics: Guliyev wrecks van Niekerk double hopes, USA take two

Turkey's Guliyev stuns field to win 200 meters

Van Niekerk can only be disappointed with gold and silver. Also ruled out of his semi-final because of the same illness, Barr might have fancied his chances in a race won by the 21 year-old Norwegian Karsten Warholm, the former European junior decathlon in what is his first proper season in the event.

Wayde van Niekerk breaks down during his BBC interview.

Earlier this week, the South African sprint star cruised to his second world title in the 400m, clocking a 43.98 second run in the final.

Van Niekerk certainly has impressive credentials. He's already the world-record holder in the 400.

The South African finished third behind Ramil Guliyev of Turkey and America's Ameer Webb, but his time of 20.28s was enough to beat Christophe Lemaire by two-hundredths of a second.

This was Guliyev's first title in world's major events, as his previous best result in the event was a sliver medal at the 2016 European Championships.

These are the narratives the beleaguered sport of track and field needs to survive. This title means a lot.

Lane seven, in which he was to run, was vacant for the race, which was won by van Niekerk. Adrenaline made sleep hard after he won the 400 on Tuesday.

Then, he was prevented from running in Monday's 200m heats.

No arguments from Van Niekerk. "Very excited for the 200 my body just needs to be ready and I'll give it my best shot". I shall rise again.

He was nearly passed by Richards, 23, who took home the first individual medal of his career. "This final was a fight, I enjoyed it. To me it's a great disappointment".

Mr Gers wrote: Following your request, we are delighted to confirm that the IAAF technical delegates have reviewed your case and will allow Isaac Makwala to run his 200m heat this evening... He was given a solo time trial Wednesday night to advance to the 200 semis. We only had benefit from the media relating to Makwala's not being allowed to compete which left us heart-broken.

Carter said: "I am on top of the world right now. I was on shape for a faster time", Makwala said.

Soon, the stage will belong to Van Niekerk & Co.

"It wasn't my time. Maybe at the next competition everyone will look at me instead".

However, the fastest man in the world this year made light of it in his semi-final.

"When you fall off a bike you have to just get up and get back on it straight away and that's what I wanted to do", said Johnson-Thompson. "I have to work to get to the gold medal".
