For Jules Pommery, this evening had the air of a two-beat waltz. Frustration first.

Much more than lightning in the pan. Marcell Jacobs won the 100m, with a sprint of 9”95.

5,000m: Hugo Hay, the unfortunate fall

Infuriating. Hugo Hay was in the action in the 5,000m, until a crash delayed him and ended his hopes of a podium finish.

Finally, Dean Mélina Robert-Michon finished eighth in the discus throw, more than seven meters behind the European champion, Croatian legend Sandra Perkovic. At 43 years old, the Frenchman, eliminated in the Tokyo classification, is still far from the mark.
