Antonio WATSON - Jamaica - World Athletics 400m Champion in 2023.

Three athleles battle for the gold medal race down the finish straight in

the men's 400 metres final. Matthew Hudson-Smith, having set a new

European record of 44.26 in his semi-final, had expectations as did Quincy Hall

who was en route to a new PB in the final of 44.37. But Antinio Watson's PB

in his semi-final (44.13) was not to be beaten.
