The American athletes simultaneously won the 5th day of the World Championships, Doha 2019. Sam Kendricks successfully defended the gold medal after crossing the 5 meter 97 beam.
Noah Lyles also up throne in the content of running 200 meters south with a record of 19 seconds 83. Donovan Brazier has champion distance running distance of 800 meters with 1 minute 42 seconds mark 34 seconds.
Kendricks also won the men’s pole vault championship two years ago (which was the first major title for a native athlete in Mississipi after a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics). Kendricks won after an attempt to cross the 95-meter crossbar of the 3rd bar. After that, he continued to attack on the 6-meter crossbar 01, but failed in the first attempt and gave up.
This time, Kendricks has continued to improve his performance. After crossing 3 levels of 5 meters 55, 5 meters 70 and 5 meters 80 easily, Kendricks got a little stuck at the 5 meter 87 level, when it took a 3rd attempt to pass. At the level of 5 meters 92, he conquered very easily, but also needs a third effort to overcome the level of 97 meters 97.
At that moment, both Kendricks and the competition competitor – Swedish athlete Armand Duplantis attacked the 6-meter-2 crossbar. Both had their first two attempts failed. At the 3rd time, Duplantis still could not pass this milestone. Kendricks naturally became the winner despite not having to attack the 6-meter-beam cross twice the last time, because before that, at the 5-meter beam 92, the opponent from the Nordic country had to make a third attempt can conquer successfully.
“I feel very excited, amazed and excited. All the feelings come together at the same time,” Kendricks said, feeling very emotional after the victory. The tournament has three guys who have ever surpassed the 6-meter crossbar to compete with each other (this year’s achievement of Kendricks, Duplantis and Piotr Lisek – who won the bronze medal with a height of 5 meters 87 and 6 meters respectively, 6 meters 02 and 6 meters), the tournament for the Titans, has become a memorable night. We confront each other, not enemies, but rivals and friends! ”
