Global Sport Communication (GSC) management company will no doubt produce strong results at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, starting Friday, July 15.
Staged at Hayward Field, the spiritual home of US athletics, the event is eagerly anticipated with world 5000m and 10,000m record-holder Joshua Cheptegei amongst the challengers representing his country and the GSC-team.
Last year the 25-year-old won Olympic 5000m gold in Tokyo and at the last edition of the World Championships in Doha, he struck 10,000m gold. It is expected he will compete for gold in both the 5000m and 10,000m events.
Another powerhouse contender on the track is double Olympic 1500m champion Faith Kipyegon. The Kenyan has proved the metric mile master of her generation as she seeks to regain the world title she last won over the distance at the 2017 London World Championships.
Dutch endurance athlete Sifan Hassan will run both the 5000m and the 10,000m. Both distances will be sure to provide a formidable challenge. At the 2019 World Championships in Doha, she completed the rare 1500m and 10,000m double. Meanwhile, at the Tokyo Olympics, the then 28-year-old produced a staggering effort to take 5000m and 10,000m gold as well as 1500m bronze.
However, watch out too for the world 5000m and 10,000m record-holder Letesenbet Gidey as the Ethiopian seeks to claim a first major senior global track title. She currently owns the world record in the half-marathon at 62:52 from the 2021 Valencia Half Marathon. She is a five-time World Cross Country Championships gold medallist.
On the road, the GSC team also boasts a powerful challenge led in the men’s marathon by Olympic silver medallist and Dutch record-holder Abdi Nageeye and three-time world half-marathon champion Geoffrey Kamworor, who will seek to add a global title over the 42.2km distance.
Uganda’s Halima Nakaayi, the world 800m champion in 2019, also takes to the start line while her countryman Olympic 3000m steeplechase champion Peruth Chemutai will also be a threat.
In the field, Olympic women’s shot put champion Lijiao Gong of China chases a hat-trick of world titles following her victories at the 2017 and 2019 editions. Watch out too for her fellow Chinese teammate and women’s Olympic javelin gold medallist Shiying Liu, who seeks to go one better than the silver medal she won at the 2019 World Championships.
Overall, athletes from 15 different countries represented by Global Sports Communication will be competing at the World Championships in Eugene.
