Ryan Crouser takes shot put title, while Allyson Felix qualifies for 400m final on her comeback

World leader Christian Coleman claimed his first national 100m title at the USA Championships, as did Teahna Daniels who sprang a surprise to take the women’s win on Friday.

Coleman, who claimed silver at the 2017 world championships behind team-mate Justin Gatlin, clocked 9.99 (1.0m/sec) after running 9.96 in the semi-finals as Michael Rodgers was second in the final and Christopher Belcher third as they both clocked 10.12.

Gatlin ran 10.16 in his semi-final but did not run in the final, with his place for the IAAF World Championships in Doha already secured as a defending champion.

Daniels just missed out on a podium place at the NCAA Championships but at the national trials in Des Moines, Iowa, she was on top, powering to victory in a time of 11.20 against a -1.7m/sec headwind.

As well as her fourth place at the NCAA Champs, the 22-year-old has won the under-23 NACAC title this summer and finished third at the Prefontaine Classic and fourth in the Monaco 200m, with her 100m PB of 10.99 having been set in Sacramento in May.

Olympic silver medallist English Gardner was second in 11.25 and Morolake Akinosun third in 11.28 as world under-20 record-holder Sha’Carri Richardson, who is third on this summer’s world rankings with 10.75 behind Elaine Thompson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, placed eighth and last in 11.72 to miss a place for the global event in Doha. Reigning world champion Tori Bowie did not enter the 100m, already having her world championships place confirmed.

World shot put leader and reigning Olympic champion Ryan Crouser threw 22.62m to win his third US title ahead of Joe Kovacs (22.31m) and Darrell Hill (22.11m), while Conor McCullough won the hammer with a PB of 78.14m.

Donald Scott won the triple jump with a wind-assisted leap of 17.74m (+2.7m/sec) ahead of Will Claye (17.70m) and Omar Craddock (17.55m). Reigning world champion Christian Taylor has a bye through to Doha.

After day two wins in the 110m hurdles (13.78) and discus (49.47m) plus PBs in the pole vault (5.00m) and javelin (60.74m), Devon Williams won the decathlon with a score of 8295 points. Solomon Simmons scored 8225 in second and Harrison Williams 8188 in third.

Making her comeback just eight months after having her baby, 11-time world gold medallist Allyson Felix secured her place in the 400m final after running 51.45 to place third in her semi-final, won by Shakima Wimbley in 50.20.

World leader Michael Norman ran 44.04 to go quickest in the men’s semi-finals as Paralympic medallist and double amputee Blake Leeper clocked 44.38.

The first day of USA Championships action had seen Lopez Lomong and Molly Huddle clock respective times of 27:30.06 and 31:58.47 to retain their 10,000m titles.

Keturah Orji won a fourth successive triple jump title with a leap of 14.56m, while Sam Matthis won the discus with a throw of 66.69m and Ariana Ince the javelin with a throw of 61.06m.

Over at the Canadian Championships, Aaron Brown retained his men’s 100m title in a close finish ahead of Andre De Grasse – 10.021 to 10.024. Crystal Emmanuel won the women’s title in 11.17. Brittany Crew won the shot put with a throw of 18.65m.
