STORY SCRIPT:

France won their first gold medal in athletics at Buenos Aires 2018 when Baptiste Thiery produced a personal best performance in clearing 5.32 metres to win the men’s Pole Vault.

His gold medal goes alongside the silver he won at European Under-18 level earlier this year.

The silver medal went to Kazuki Furusawa of Japan who cleared 5.22 metres – also a personal best – while Dmitriy Kachanov took bronze with 5.12 metres.

The medals in the women’s Triple Jump were hotly contested, with several key competitors performing well.

Eventually, the gold went to Aleksandra Nacheva of Bulgaria who recorded a jump of 13.86 metres with her second attempt of the session.

Maria Vincente of Spain put her under plenty of pressure, having opened with a leap of 13.67 metres, but she was unable to better that and had to settle for silver.

Bronze went to Mariya Privalova of Russia with her best of 13.03 metres.

The final event on the track was the men’s 110 metre Hurdles and saw eight new personal best times across the three heats.

It was Owaab Barrow of Qatar who took the gold medal, winning the third stage two heat in a time of 13.17 seconds.

Silver went to Kenny Fletcher of France in 13.25 seconds while Lok Hei Addis Wong of Hong Kong completed the podium places after a run of 13.39 seconds.

The men’s 700g Javelin gold medal went to Topias Laine of Finland.
