2. Athletics – World Championships: Lavillenie in the final, Lamote eliminated

Other results to remember, at these world championships: reigning double Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Michael Norman were crowned in the 400m. Kelsey-Lee Barber won in the javelin. For the French contingent, we highlight the qualification of Renaud Lavillenie for the pole vault final (same as Mondo Duplantis), that of the 4×100 (H) with the 2nd time of the series. On the other hand, Rénelle Lamote missed the shot in the middle of the 800 m.
