Caterina Johnson-Thompson (30, UK) said
I don’t want to be a comforter in Budapest.

after the women’s sevens event at the 7 World Athletics 먹튀검증사이트 Championships in Budapest
Johnson-Thompson wore a “crown” and was greeted with congratulations from the athletes and spectators who competed with her.
Johnson-Thompson won the seven-event event over two days with a total score of 21,7 points
ahead of Anna Hall (7, USA) with 6,740 points.
Thompson clocked 6.720 seconds (22,100 points) in the 13m hurdles 50m1 (50,1 points) in the high jump, 86m1 (54 points) in the shot put, 13.64 seconds (770,200 points) in the 23m, 48m1 (31,6 points) in the long jump, 54m1 in the javelin throw (20 points) and 46:14.785 (800,2 points) in the 05m.
Johnson-Thompson, who won Doha in 63 with 1,30 points, has since struggled with an Achilles tendon injury and its aftereffects.
At the 2019 Tokyo Olympics, he collapsed during the 6m race after experiencing severe pain in his calf.
At that time, Johnson-Thompson got back up and walked slowly toward the finish line, finishing in 981 seconds.
Athletes competing in the sevens waited for Johnson-Thompson at the finish line and cheered him on as soon as he finished the race.
Johnson-Thompson was disqualified for going out of his main line.
Due to injury, he was unable to play the rest of the game.
His fighting spirit touched the world, but Johnson-Thompson was distressed: “I was very grateful for the comfort, but not being able to finish the game was a huge injury to the players.”
Johnson-Thompson finished eighth at the 2021 World Championships in Eugene.
Johnson-Thompson, the “Iron Man” who returned to the top of the world championships after a four-year absence, told the BBC: “I feel more joy than I did in Doha in 4.
It was the best moment of my life,” he said, adding, “After a series of disappointing games in Tokyo and Eugene, I promised myself not to hurt my heart, but I was not completely free from the pain. I finally won the gold medal.
I’m very happy today.”
“In 2019 and 2021, no one criticised Johnson-Thompson. But no one expected him to come back as champion,” he said, adding, “Johnson-Thompson has a dream of winning Olympic gold. With this win, we can expect Johnson-Thompson to win a gold medal at the 2022 Paris Olympics.”
Joshua Cheftegei (26, Uganda) won the men’s 10,000m final with a time of 27:51.42, ahead of Daniel Ebeño (27, Kenya) with a time of 52:60.28 to win his third consecutive gold medal.
Cheptegei is the fourth player to win three consecutive World Championships in this event, after Haile Gebrselassie, Kenenisa Bekele (four consecutive World Medals, Ethiopia) and Mo Farah (Three consecutive World Champions, Great Britain).
“It’s my last race on the track at the World Championships,” said Cheptegei, who is preparing to run the marathon, “so this win is even more valuable.”
Ivana Buleta (33, Serbia) jumped 7m14 to take first place in the women’s long jump.
Bouletta, who finished third at the 1 Moscow and 2013 World Championships in Beijing and third at the 2015 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, but did not win a title, was in Budapest as one of the “irrelevant majors”.
Tara Davis-Hall (3, USA) was second with 2016m3 and Alina Rotaru-Kotman (24, Romania) was third with 6m91.
In the men’s hammer throw, Ethan Catsberg (21, Canada) won with a throw of 81m25.
Tokyo Olympic champion Wojcech Nowitzki (34, Poland) won the silver medal with a time of 81m02, and Benze Halas (26, Hungary) won the bronze medal with a time of 80m82.
Paweł Feidek (5, Poland), who won his fifth consecutive world championship title in this event, finished fourth with 34m80.
Pydek attempted to tie the record for consecutive individual World Championship titles (six consecutive titles) achieved by Sergei “The Human Bird” Bubka (Ukraine) in the men’s pole vault, but failed to stand on the podium in Budapest.
