London Diamond League — Stylish Emmanuel Korir Climbs All-Time 800 List

A 1:42.05 for Emmanuel Korir moved him to No. 6 on the all-time world list. (MARK SHEARMAN)

London, England, June 21-22—Emmanuel Korir recorded the world’s quickest 800 in 6 years, clocking 1:42.05 to win at the Müller Anniversary Games, as Sifan Hassan won the women’s mile with the third-fastest time ever. Those meet records came on a thrilling second day of action in the London Stadium, which also saw world leads by Keni Harrison in the 100H and Mariya Lasitskene in the high jump.

Korir’s performance was the most stirring. The London track, after all, had witnessed the WR of David Rudisha in the ’12 Olympic final. Slotting behind pacer Bram Som (24.3, 49.87), Korir (24.5, 50.3) wouldn’t be passed, going through 600m in 1:16.73. Wycliffe Kinyamal and Clayton Murphy pushed through the final bend, but couldn’t respond as the 23-year-old Kenyan pulled away. He maintained his unbeaten season as the clocking put him at No. 6 all-time. His two halves were 50.3 and 51.8.

“I am happy because that is a huge performance for me,” said Korir, who also recorded 44.21(A) and 44.52 for 400m last month. “It’s important to beat those guys because they’re all really strong.” Strong indeed: the top 8 were under 1:45; 7 behind Korir posted personal or seasonal bests, including Clayton Murphy, who finished 2nd in a U.S.-leading 1:43.12 (the No. 10 performance in U.S. history). Next was Kinyamal in the same time, then Nijel Amos, the Monaco winner in 1:42.14 just 2 days before, backed that up in 4th (1:43.29).

Watching on was former WR holder—and now IAAF President—Seb Coe, who called the race “brilliant.” The same could be said of the women’s mile. Hassan, who had broken the European 5000 record 9 days earlier, sat through the first 800 following the high-end pacing of Brenda Martinez (63.30, 63.55 [2:06.85]), but began to move with Hellen Obiri at halfway. The two passed Laura Muir, then Gudaf Tsegay, through the third lap, but Hassan showed the better strength, pulling away steadily through the final 400m to win in a Dutch Record 4:14.71. “It’s unbelievable how fast I ran today. I have the endurance and speed but don’t normally have the last kick and today I did,” she said.

Tsegay, having repassed Obiri, moved to No. 6 on the all-time list with her PR 4:16.14. In all, 11 of the 14 finishers recorded lifetime bests, including a Kenyan Record 4:16.15 for Obiri and PRs for U.S. runners Jenny Simpson (4:17.30 to scare Mary Slaney’s AR of 4:16.71) and Kate Grace (8th in 4:20.70 for No. 4 on the all-time U.S. list).

The 100H was staged over two rounds. Olympic champion Brianna McNeal (12.41) and WR holder Keni Harrison (12.50) were the heat winners. In the final Harrison got away from McNeal early, and although the latter battled well it was too late to apply significant pressure. Harrison, with good rhythm, closed for a 12.36 world leader. It was her first win in the Diamond League since Doha’s season-opener in May. McNeal, who finished 2nd, remained atop the overall DL standings. Sharika Nelvis, fluid after a slow start, recorded a seasonal-best 12.51 to ensure a US 1-2-3.

Another US winner came in the women’s 200. Jenna Prandini broke late from sharp-starting Dina Asher-Smith and fast-finishing Marie-Josée Ta Lou, who both faded. The U.S. champion’s first DL win was achieved in a PR 22.16. Behind her, USA’s Gabrielle Thomas dipped well to claim 2nd in a PR 22.19.

Likewise, the non-scoring men’s 1500m was won by USA’s Matthew Centrowitz. The Olympic champion won for the first time in a DL meet in 3:35.22 after kicking from the bell, repelling the charge of Australia’s Ryan Gregson.

Earlier on the track, American Ce’Aira Brown showed strength to hold off Jamaican Natoya Goule to win the non-scoring 800 in 1:58.57. The women’s 400 was won by Stephenie Ann McPherson in 50.31; her fellow Jamaican Akeem Bloomfield won the non-scoring 200 in 19.81, chopping 0.19 seconds from his PR. In the men’s non-scoring 110m hurdles, Ronald Levy recorded a seasonal 13.13 to win.

After a streak-ending defeat in Rabat, Mariya Lasitskene returned to her winning ways in the high jump. The world champion matched her yearly world lead of 6-8¼ (2.04) with a first-time clearance, eclipsing surprising Elena Vallortigara. The 26-year-old Italian came in with a PR of 6-5 (1.96), but upped that first to 6-6¾ (2.00), then to 6-7½ (2.02), both on third try. With victory confirmed at 6-8¼, Lasitskene attempted a PR 6-9¾ (2.08); although close with her third effort, a share of No. 2 on the all-time list eluded her.

On an elevated runway, Luvo Manyonga equaled his season’s best of 28-1¾ (8.58) to win the long jump. The South African, winner at last week’s World Cup, dominated, with a consistent series of 26-9¼, 27-11, 28-0, 28-1¾, 27-8, 27-8 (8.16, 8.51, 8.53, 8.58, 8.43, 8.43). Compatriot Ruswahl Samaai was 2nd with 27-7½ (8.42), while American Jarrion Lawson was 3rd with 27-¾ (8.25), his best mark of the season.

Sandra Perković made light work of the discus, going out to 220-7 (67.24) with her opening throw to win by more than 2½m over Yaimé Pérez. The Croatian fouled her final 5 throws, but is now on a streak of 14 straight victories.

On the opening day, Ronnie Baker prevailed in the men’s 100. The co-world leader was fastest in the heats with 9.90, which he matched in the final to win ahead of Briton Zharnel Hughes. On the women’s side, 2-time Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.98) won a non-scoring century. The speedy Jamaican dipped under 11 for the first time since giving birth in ’17. The USA’s Dezerea Bryant was 2nd in 11.04.

USA’s Olympic silver medallist Paul Chelimo claimed his first Diamond League victory in the 5000. He recorded a 52-second last lap to out-kick Yomif Kejelcha and win in 13:14.01.

Shamier Little claimed her second consecutive Diamond League win in the 400H. The U.S. champion battled hard with Janieve Russell over the final two barriers, prevailing, as she did in Lausanne with a well-timed dip. “I put my soul into that lean!” said Little, whose time was 53.95. The men’s non-DL race was won by world champion Karsten Warholm in a Norwegian Record 47.65.

A battling Sam Kendricks produced enough to beat Renaud Lavillenie in the pole vault. The American’s first-time 19-5 (5.92) clearance was crucial, as he had missed bars at the previous three heights. Lavillenie had made those first time but couldn’t match the U.S. champion’s best, topping out at 19-2¾ (5.86), as did Mondo Duplantis, who was operating under a bit of a handicap. Explained the Louisiana high schooler, “The conditions were good today but I was unfortunate enough not to have my own poles, but fortunate enough to be able to borrow Renaud’s poles which were very similar to mine and thank you to him for letting me borrow his poles while I’m competing against him. It took a little bit of time to adjust to but I put together some good jumps at the end and I cannot complain when I’m behind those two.”

Abdalelah Haroun set a PR to win the men’s 400. The Qatari found conclusive late strength to emerge from the pack and win in 44.07. Paul Dedewo paced his lap well for 2nd in a PR 44.43.
