Brazilian adds 200m title to his 100m gold in Naples

Paulo André Camilo completed a prestigious sprint double by winning the men’s 200m on day four of athletics action at the World University Games in Naples.

The Brazilian showed his sprint pedigree by running a personal best time of 20.28 (+0.5m/sec) to win a second gold in three days.

The 100m silver medallist, Chederick Van Wyk, took a second silver medal for South Africa as he also ran a personal best (20.44).

Ireland’s Marcus Lawler took the bronze in 20.55, while Britain’s Jordan Broome was sixth in 20.75.

Camilo was not Brazil’s only gold medalist on Thursday as his team-mate Alison Santos took gold in the men’s 400m hurdles in 48.57.

Securing silver was South Africa’s Sokwakhana Zazini as he broke the African under-20 record with his time of 48.73, which moves him to 10th on the world under-20 all-time list.

The women’s 100m champion Dutee Chand was unable to replicate Camilo’s success as she finished fifth in the 200m final in 23.30. The race was won by Belarus’ Krystsina Tsimanouskaya in a personal best time of 23.00.

Alicja Konieczek won the women’s 3000m steeplechase with 9:41.46.

In the field events, Moldovan Andrian Mardare took the men’s javelin title with a throw of 82.40m, with Lithuanian Edis Matusevicius the only other athlete to break the 80-metre barrier (80.07m).

In the women’s pole vault final, Roberta Bruni won in front of a home crowd (4.46m), holding off American athletes Rachel Baxter (4.41m) and Antionette Guy (4.31m).

Canadian Sarah Mitton won the shot put with her throw of 18.31m. No other athlete managed to throw over 18 metres.

Briton Jessica Hunter finished sixth in her 100m hurdles semi-final in a time of 13.53. In the final, another home gold medal was achieved by Italian Luminosa Bogliolo in 12.79 (+0.6m/sec). Bogliolo was the only athlete in the field to break the prestigious 13 second mark.

Earlier in the day Britain’s Khai Riley-La Borde qualified for the semi-finals of the 110m hurdles. He took one of the fastest loser spots for his time of 13.80.

Both Nick Percy and Greg Thompson qualified for the discus final with respective throws of 60.61m and 59.57m.
