Ogando, 5th in the World Cup 200 meters; USA 1-2-3 . does

eugene, oregon, USA ( Associated Press) — Alexander Ogando was looking to achieve another feat at the world championships in athletics, this time in person. He is still part of the “Fantastic Four” of the Dominican Republic.

But the comic in which he shines will have to wait for now.

Ogando finished fifth in Thursday’s 200m final, where the United States made it 1-2-3, as it did in the 100m.

Noah Lyles took the gold in 19.31 seconds, followed by Kenneth Bednarek in 19.77 and Arianne Knighton in 19.80 seconds.

Ogando and his teammates of the 4×400 mixed relay won the gold medal on day one at Hayward Field. Athletes from the Eastern Municipality of San Juan de la Maguana themselves were key to the silver medal in Tokyo last year, with the last post pushing their heads forward to cross the finish line.

In Thursday’s race, he couldn’t handle American strength. Fourth place went to Joseph Fahbollah of Liberia with 19.84, while the Dominican stopped the clock at 19.93.

In the semi-finals, Ogando indicated that he would achieve something unprecedented. He went ahead with a time of 19.91 seconds, which represented the best score in history for a Dominican athlete.

What was the first one? A 20.21 which he himself achieved in the qualifying round.

Ogando, 22, who studied at the University of Puerto Rico, is coached by Felix Sánchez, considered the best athlete in the history of the Dominican Republic. The New York-born “Supersenchez” won Olympic gold in the 400m hurdles for the Dominican Republic in Athens 2004 and London 2012.
