by Deji Ogeyinbgo - Three races, three wins, and three of the seven fastest times ever, including a world record. Short, simple, and gone. In pure athletics terms, if you were to summarize the life of Kenyan marathon star Kelvin Kiptum who passed away on the 11th of February 2024. It came as a huge shock to the athletics world for many reasons, but primarily for the fact that he was tipped to go under 2 hours for the first time in Rotterdam in April and also snagged the Olympic title in Paris.

by Deji Ogeyingbo - Noah Lyles is an enigma. This by now is common knowledge. The more we find answers to the questions we’ve had about him before, the more he gives us reasons for the already established notion about his capabilities.

1. The Women’s shot put showed that there are always surprises in sports! Sarah Mitton of Canada overcame the huge 20.19m PB by Germany’s Yemisi OgunLeye, who threw a 60-centimeter PB to open the competition! Giving Canada its first gold in women’s shot put, Sarah Mitton improved to 20.22m, going 6-6 in indoor season. Outdoor world champ, 2022 silver indoor medalist Chase Jackson finished in bronze in 19.67m. Many had thought Chase would be the winner. Surprises abound in champs.
