Americans Inika McPherson and Vashti Cunningham are out at 1.95m and will finish in ninth and tenth, respectively. Meanwhile, we have our first authorized neutral athlete world champion of the week in Maria Lasitskene, who clears 2.03m on the day. The defending world champion from Russia makes three attempts at 2.08m but is not successful We’ve been wondering all week what anthem would be played if a neutral athlete won. Hopefully they televise the award ceremony so we can finally find out… Yuliia Levchenko of Ukraine sets a PB of 2.01m for silver and bronze goes to Kamila Licwinko of Poland, who clears 1.99m. There’s only one American left in NCAA champion Devon Williams of the University of Georgia, who currently sits in ninth place with 7,411 points. Decathlon standings prior to 1500m: Nakamura of Japan runs 4:22.62 for the win and the top five placements are not affected. Devon Williams drops down to tenth overall with his 4:40.5 effort. With the retirement of Ashton Eaton, Kevin Mayer of France steps up as the newest “world’s greatest athlete. To the IAAF, Mayer says, “I’m so, so tired. I just wanted to say that you are the most amazing public of all the world, and I thank you for that, very very much.
