In her first World Athletics Championships, Ansan City, South Korea’s Jung Yoo-sun (25) checked out the high barriers on the world stage.
Jung failed to qualify with a throw of 15.56 meters in the women’s shot put qualifying round at the 2023 World Athletics Championships at the Budapest National Stadium in Hungary on Saturday. She was 34th out of 35 athletes who qualified on the day.
Only Grace Tennant (24-Canada), who fouled on all three attempts, finished lower than Jung.
Jung is the first South Korean to win a gold medal at the Asian Indoor Championships. However, the gap between her and the world’s top athletes was huge and she ended the competition with a disappointing result, falling short of her personal best (17m12).
In the women’s marathon, Amane Beriso (32-Ethiopia) won in 2:24:23, beating defending champion Gotitom Gebrselassie (28-Ethiopia) by 11 seconds in 2:24:34.
It is the first time an Ethiopian has swept the top two spots in the women’s marathon at a world championships.
“We knew we could get better results if we worked together,” Beriso told Reuters after the race, “and I am happy that Ethiopia won both gold and silver.”
Beriso, who was recognized as a world-class marathoner when she won the Valencia Marathon in December last year in 2:14:58, the third-best time ever by a woman, followed it up with a second-place finish at the Boston Marathon in April this year (2:21:50).
Fatima Gardadi, 31-Morocco, who ran the full marathon for the first time in 2022, finished third in 2:25:17, becoming the first Moroccan woman to win a World Championships medal. 안전카지노사이트
