What’s up Philadelphia…..and friends joining us from around the world! Here are a few things we’re excited about in the Robust Realm of Running!
The 2023 World Athletics Championships kicked off last Saturday in Budapest, Hungary. Also sponsored by ASICS. Highlights included:
Final event, Heptathlon: 800 meters. United States’ Anna Hall needed to win by 3 seconds over defending champ, Great Britian’s Katarina Johnson-Thompson, to claim the title. And Anna won…..by 1.5 seconds. Make every second count, right KJT?
Two (2) Dutch athletes, um, stumbled on their way to the finish line. That’s kind of a pun, but not really…..
Noah Lyles shocked the Worlds (ok, that’s really a pun) by winning the 100 meters. He’s the favorite for the 200. Can he get the illustrious double?
Grant Holloway with the three–peat.
Sha'Carri Richardson. Fast. Record. CHAMPION!
Here’s the remaining schedule…..
