Les principales performances

* Poids hommes : Joe Kovacs remporte la victoire avec un énorme jet à 22.61m, record du meeting.


* Perche hommes : Surprise incroyable avec la première défaite cette année de Armand Duplantis, 5.81m, battu par le Philippin Ernest John Obiena et ses 5.91m.

"It took a lot of luck, a good day and some excellent calls to beat Mondo today. It´s always my goal to win, but I definitely have the magic number of 6m00 on my mind. That´s what I´m training for and I really think that I´m capable of jumping that height.

It´s only a matter of time and some good circumstances. I still have a couple of busy weeks ahead of my. I will try to recover now as good as possible and to stay consistent in my jumps."


* Triple saut hommes : Lazaro Martinez avec un bond à 17.49m démontre encore une fois la qualité de la formidable école Cubaine.


* Javelot dames : Un lancer énorme à 68.11m permet à Kara Winger de signer la MPM 2022, le record national et le record du meeting.

"I feel so incredible my last personal best was twelve years ago in 2010 and I had two surgeries since then but I felt really amazing this year. I was so consistent and with my husband as my coach and the best support system around me it has just been such a cool year of great decision-making for me and doing what is right for me.

To feel so supported by competitors out there too and the crowd everywhere is so supportive. It was the same this year in Eugene and now in Brussels I felt very at home here, I´ll definetely return here. Just perfect conditions and fabulous women to compete with, a wonderful meeting overall. I just cannot believe it yet I´m so happy."


* Saut en hauteur dames : Sensationnelle Yaroslava Mahuchikh qui passe une barre incroyable à 2.05m au 2e essai. La jeune Ukrainienne bat son record personnel, le record nationale et signe une MPM 2022.

"It´s so joyful that I jumped my personal best because my previous record of 2m04 was from 2019 so that is a long time to improve my jump. I tried 2m10 today but for now that is a bit too high. For a long time nobody even attempted that height so I feel very good.

My agent said that I can jump higher than 2m10 so maybe if all of the conditions are right... Next up is Zürich, my last of this season. It has definitely been the most difficult season so far because of the war in my country. It´s terrible and today I jumped for all the Ukrainian people.

I know that they smile now. Diamond Leagues were tough this year, I was good at the European Championships but right now a good jump came through. Brussels is really fantastic every year."


* 400m haies : Le Brésilien Alison Dos Santos ajoute une nouvelle victoire à son palmarès avec un très bon 47'54. Troisième place pour Wilfried Happio en 48'61.


* 200m hommes : Avec un vent totalement défavorable, -2.9m/s, le prodige Erriyon Knighton (USA) s'impose mais ne pouvait pas faire mieux que 20'07


* 100m dames : Une course de très haut niveau avec la succès de Shericka Jackson (JAM) en 10'73 qui devance d'un centième sa coéquipière Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce. Derrière ça va encore très vite avec Marie José Ta Lou en 10'78, Aleia Hobbs en 10'91 et Sha Carri Richardson en 10'93.

Une course qui s'est déroulée avec un vent régulier +0.6m/s.

"It takes a lot of hard work to beat Shelley-Ann, she's a tough cookie to beat. So you need to keep working hard if you want to win. Tonight I had a good execution of my race, so I'm happy with that."


* 100m haies : Battue par la recordwoman du monde Tobi Amusan aux mondiaux, Jasmine Camacho Quinn (PUR) s'illustre une nouvelle fois en claquant un énorme 12'27 avec un vent nul. Les Américaines Tia Jones et Kendra Harrison s'illustrent aussi avec 12'38 et 12'40

"I felt really good in the warm up and I actually ran the race that I wanted. I feel that I have more to give, because the last couple of hurdles weren´t clean. I still want to fix that up. Hopefully I can do that in the next couple of trainings before Zurich.

Other than that I´m very happy with the race and the result. It has been a really tough year for me physically and mentally. Just to be able to come this far and to compete at this level proves how strong I am. It motivates me for the next year.

I still have two more races and I hope to get a PB out of it. If that doesn´t happen, then that´s ok. I´m only 26 and I still have time for things like the world record. I´m not stressed. I just want to finish the season healthy qnd next year there´s more to come."


* 5000m hommes : La grande tradition du meeting de Bruxelles, Mémorial Ivo Van Damme, c'est évidemment le demi fond, avec cette course spécialement montée pour réussir un gros chrono.

Le Kenyan Jacob Krop va s'en charger et gagner avec un chrono monstrueux de 12'45"71. L'Américain Grant Fischer, superbe 2e, en 12'46"96 établit un nouveau record du continent Nord Américain.

"I met most of the competitors in Monaco, when we ran the 3000m. So I knew them a bit better. Today was the second time running with them and I kney what to do. The race was though today, but I tried my best and took the win."


* 1500m dames : Encore une course géniale et ultra rapide avec la victoire de l'Irlandaise Ciara Mageean en 3'56"63, record national. Laura Muir, la grande favorite, se contente pour une fois de la 2e place.

"I expected to run fast and I actually had the national record of Sonia O´Sullivan, which is 3.58.85, on my mind. I thought that I had it in me to beat that record and maybe run 3.57. However before this race a never ran under 4 minutes, so to run a time of 3.56.63 is something that blows my mind.

People say that in athletics and in life every so often you havea day where you are completely in the zone. It doesn´t happen when you want to and you never know when it will happen. I can only say that this is how I felt today: I was in the zone and it felt like I was running on clouds.

I´m so happy with this result and to be able to beat the national record of a legend like Sonia O´Sullivan is so special. For me winning a medal at a major championship is still the most important thing, but breaking a record is also something you want as an athlete.

I can´t wait to celebrate this with my team and my family. I have to say that it has been a tough year for me. In january I had a calf injury, in april I changed coaches, which wasn´t planned, and just before the Commonyealth Games I had covid.

It wasn´t smooth, but it´s all about consistency. I worked so hard to become a steady competitor at the world level and once you get consistent every now and then you get a glistening day like today."


* 800m hommes : Cette magnifique soirée se termine avec la victoire du champion du monde Jake Wightman (GBR) en 1'43"65, nouveau record personnel.
