Friday, August 19, 2022, 5:58 PM GMT-5

Jamaica won ten medals in the World Athletics Championships. In the last event at Hayward Field, the women’s 4×400-meter relay team won silver, giving the country ten medals. This is an achievement that those in NCAA point spreads value when betting.

The United States won 33 medals in all, the most of any country. They earned thirteen gold medals, nine silver, and eleven bronze medals. This is also the most points ever won by any country at the World Athletics Championships.

The United States has led the medal count for several days. In the men’s 200-meter dash on Thursday night, Noah Lyles won gold, Kenneth Bednarek won silver, and Erriyon Knighton won bronze.

Shericka Jackson won the women’s 200-meter dash, while Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce placed second. These two medals were awarded to Jamaica. Dina Asher-Smith from the United Kingdom finished third in the race.

The Winners

Prime Minister Andrew Holness lauded Jamaica’s competitors and stated, “As I watched the medal ceremony at this year’s World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, I feel I speak for all Jamaicans, at home and abroad, when I say that this moment means so much to us all.” Congratulations to our sprint queens, who continue to inspire us.”

Jamaican competitors performed so well at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, United States, that they won the fourth-most medals. The tiny Caribbean island nation has earned one gold medal, two silver medals, and one bronze medal.

At the Oregon World Championships, Candice McLeod and Stephanie-Ann McPherson will compete in the women’s 400-meter race final.

Rushell Clayton, who won a bronze medal at the World Championships, has done it again.

In the second semifinal of the Women’s 400m Hurdles (53.63 seconds), she achieved a personal best and secured a coveted position in the final.

Monday night, Shaneika Ricketts won the silver medal in the triple jump. Sunday evening’s 100-meter final for ladies was won by Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Shericka Jackson, and Elaine Thompson-Herah.

Shaneika Ricketts placed second in the final of the women’s triple jump at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon. Prime Minister Andrew Holness expressed his pride in her. Continue to strive for the stars. We are content.”

Dominating the sprints

Jamaica and the United States share four of the last eight global titles and eight of the last ten Olympic gold medals.

The race on Saturday was just as entertaining as the others. The Americans believed their well-honed collaboration would be sufficient to defeat a squad they believed would be only one meter behind them in speed due to their intense individual efforts.

In the sprint relay on Saturday at the World Championships, Jamaica had three women who had won medals in the 100m, but that was not enough to prevent the United States from winning gold and receiving the loudest applause of the week at Hayward Field.

Abby Steiner joined Melissa Jefferson, Jenna Prandini, and Twanisha Terry on the United States team. Terry ran a great anchor leg to bring the team home in 41.14 seconds, the fifth-fastest time in history.

It turned out to be accurate when Jamaica had to slow down slightly to grab the baton twice because the United States made no errors.

After introducing their “big three,” Shericka Jackson, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Elaine Thompson-Herah, Jamaica appeared threatening. Kemba Nelson was the sole remaining member of their semifinal team.

Jamaica placed second with a timing of 41.18 seconds, the sixth-best performance ever, despite losing a few fractions of a second due to several lengthy modifications.

Nigeria placed fourth with a record-setting timing of 42.22 seconds, an African best. Spain placed fifth with a national record time of 42.58 seconds. Spain also established a new benchmark in the semifinals.

Prandini performed admirably on the third leg, while Jamaican anchor Jackson, who had just won the 200-meter gold, failed to impress Terry. This contributed to the United States’ eighth gold medal at Eugene. Terry remarked that the winning lap was spectacular.

“Getting a feel for the crowd’s excitement, shaking hands, and signing autographs. It is a lovely sensation,” She continued. “The race was very entertaining. Everyone in the stadium shouted, “We just got it home!”

Jefferson stated, “No one thought we could accomplish it today, and I’m delighted we did.” We have great confidence in our abilities, and I knew we would demonstrate them to the world.”

The odds-on favorite to win a medal in the 200-meter race, Steiner finished fifth in the final. It was a surprising solace for him.

She stated, “This is the most enjoyable race I’ve ever participated in.” “I have never screamed like that during a race. There is enchantment in Hayward.”
