Elaine Thompson-Herah and Anita Wlodarczyk cemented their status as all-time athletics greats
Anita Wlodarczyk, already the finest women's hammer thrower of all-time, added another stunning superlative to her career on Tuesday.
The thing is that Mondo Duplantis makes it look so easy.
Elaine Thompson-Herah added another stunning performance to a day which will live long in the memory, becoming the first woman to ever complete a golden 100m and 200m ‘double double’ at the Olympics.
Breathtaking. Stunning. Epic. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the men’s 400m hurdles final on Tuesday (3) at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
In the end it took one moment of brilliance to claim the Olympic gold medal.
It will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest races in athletics history.
