Canadians in the 4 x 100 meters relay final

The Canadian 4 x 100 meter relay team completed its World Championships in Athletics mandate by advancing to the final of the running event on Friday in Eugene, Oregon.

The representatives of the maple leaf posted a time of 38.10 seconds, good for second place in their wave, to a hundredth of a second behind the French. The South Africans took the third rung.

Athletes standing out for the “Maple Leaf” are Andre De Grasse, Brendon Rodney, Jerome Blake and Aaron Brown.

Recall that De Grasse had announced his withdrawal from the 200 meters - an event he won at the Tokyo Games - to dedicate all his energy to the relay last week.

The three fastest teams of the two waves went directly to the final. The two countries excluded from the top 3 with the fastest time also qualified.

The Americans clocked the best time of the semi-finals, in 37.87 s.

Jamaica, Brazil, Great Britain and Ghana have also secured their tickets to the final, which will take place on Saturday.

A personal best for Liz Gleadle

British Columbian Liz Gleadle, who has never finished better than 12th at the Olympics, outdid herself in the javelin throwing event finishing ninth.

This is a personal best in a competition of such magnitude for the 33-year-old athlete.

Gleadle only needed one throw to set her best result in the final, a throw of 59.59 yards, as she missed the next two.
