LON­DON 2017 v BEI­JING 2015

Athletics Weekly - - Iaaf World Champs 2017 -

HOW did the stan­dards set in Lon­don match up to the win­ning times in Bei­jing two years ago? Lon­don’s sprints and hur­dles times were slower due to the weather be­ing much cooler. How­ever, the field events and dis­tance races were gen­er­ally bet­ter this year and, per­haps sur­pris­ingly, Lon­don won the com­par­i­son 25:22 but two events had a sin­gle cen­time­tre dif­fer­ence and an­other was 0.01 of a sec­ond.
