Ristananna Tracey became only the third Jamaican woman to win a medal in the 400m hurdles at the World Championships when she produced a magnificent late surge to displace the defending champion Zuzana Hejnova from the last medal position and claim the second bronze medal for the country at the games in London on Thursday.

After running personal bests to qualify for the finals of the men’s 400m at the IAAF World Championships, both Nathon Allen and Demish Gaye finished just outside the medals on Tuesday, placing fifth and sixth respectively in a race won by Olympic champion Wayde Van Niekerk of South Africa in 43.97s. Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas was second in 44.41 and Abdalelah Haroun of Qatar ran on late to snatch the bronze in a season’s best 44.48s.
