Beijing World Championships

Today the 2015 Beijing World Championships came to an end. Over the 8 days of competition 43 countries won medals, Mo Farah became the undisputed king of long distance after winning both the 5,000 and the 10,000m and Usain Bolt (pictured) beat Justin Gaitlin twice and won the 4x100m relay to claim 3 gold medals to destroy any doubt about his place as the world’s fastest man.

Great Britain won 7 medals (4 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze) including superb performances from Jessica Eniss-Hill (Heptathlon gold) Greg Rutherford (Long Jump Gold) and Shara Procter (Long Jump Silver).

At the end of it all Kenya surprisingly topped the medal table (with Jamaica and U.S.A close behind) with 16 medals (7 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze) with standout performances from David Rudisha (800m gold) and Julius Yego (Javelin gold).
