The American Sam Kendricks became the first athlete to revalidate the pole vault world title since the time of Ukrainian Sergey Bubka by imposing a 5.97 mark on the 19-year-old Swede Armand Duplantis - silver with the same record - and the Polish Piotr Lisek, who stayed at 5.87.

Defender of the title and world leader of the year with 6.06. No one could discuss his favorite condition, but Kendricks' task was not easy. Lisek (6.02) and Duplantis (6.00) had also surpassed the six-meter wall this year, and another, Brazilian Olympic champion Thiago Braz, had done so in 2016.

The American Noah Lyles held the pulse with his compatriot Christian Coleman -Champion of 100- for the stardom of universal athletics when proclaiming 200 meters world champion with a time of 19.83 ahead of Canadian Andre de Grasse (19.95) and Ecuadorian Alex Quiñónez (19.98).

Lyles, world leader of the year, took the lead as he entered the finish line and ended up winning with some slack. The Turkish Ramil Guliyev, who defended title, was fifth with 20.07.
