Carey leads home American sweep in men’s world 100m final

Fred Carey led an American clean sweep in the 100m final on Saturday, the first time since 1991, to send home fans wild and give the game’s dominant nation a night to remember as they hosted the world championships for the first time. Had it.

Marvin Bracey took the silver and Trayvon Bromell both took the bronze with a time of 9.88 seconds, but Bracey took it by two thousandths of a second.

Carl Lewis led clean sweeps in 1983 and 1991, but no country has managed it since then.

Once they were in their races, there was nothing between the medalists, and it was impossible to call Bromell in eight lanes and the other two in lanes three and four simultaneously.

As each name, along with the stars and stripes, appeared on giant screens, the home crowd increased the volume of their cheers, confirming 1-2-3 with the chant of “USA”.

On what should be the biggest night of the championship, it would have been more impressive if the 12,500-capacity stadium was full anywhere. The vacant seats will be a major disappointment for the organizers and World Athletics.

Of course, Carey wasn’t worried about it in the slightest. “I said we were going to do it and we did it — USA, baby,” he said in a trackside interview.

Olympic silver medalist Carey was the form runner at the ground. He posted the leading time of the year and a personal best of 9.76 on the same Eugene track when he won the US Trials last month, and had his fastest world championship heat time of 9.79 on Friday.

He is one of only three men, along with South Africa’s Wyde van Niekerk and fellow American Michael Norman, to break 10 seconds in the 100m, 20 seconds in the 200m and 44 seconds in the 400m.

And the 27-year-old is now the only person to win medals in both the 100m and 400m, having finished third in a lap in 2019.

For Bromell, who is the second-fastest player in the world this year, bronze was some kind of consolation after the Tokyo Olympics, where he failed to make the final after entering the Games as the favourite.

Jamaica’s Oblique Seville, the fastest in the semi-final qualifiers, finished fourth with 9.97, while Olympic champion Lamont Jacobs of Italy withdrew from the semi-finals due to injury.
