BUCS champion claims 5000m title in Naples

Britain’s Jess Judd was able to upgrade her bronze medal from two years ago to a gold on day five of the World University Games in Naples.

Judd powered away from Canadian Nicole Hutchinson (15:51.75) and Dutch athlete Julia Van Velthoven (15:51.75) to win the 5000m in 15:45.82.

“I’m so happy,” said Judd. “I’ve done so many championships and I’ve never won, so I really wanted to win.

“I’m just over the moon. It was the most difficult race I’ve been in; I can’t believe I won.

“I keep joking that I’m a lone wolf and I do my own thing, but this week the team have been really nice and they’ve taken me in.

“It’s so great, that meant a lot.”

Brazil continued their good run of sprints medals. Gabriel Constantino took gold in the 110m hurdles in 13.22.

Britain’s Khai Riley-La Borde finished sixth in his semi-final with 13.94.

The day had begun with the women’s 20km race walk, which Australian Katie Hayward won in 93:30. Japan’s Koki Ikeda won the men’s event in 82:49.

Ukrainian Iryna Klymets won the women’s hammer with a throw of 71.25m. Polish athletes Malawia Kopron (70.89m) and Katarzyna Furmanek (69.68m) were second and third.

In the men’s 3000m steeplechase, Moroccan Mounaime Sassioui won in 8:30.24. Briton Mark Pearce was seventh in 8:42.63.

Ukranian Olha Korsun jumped a personal best of 13.90 to take the gold in the triple jump.
