Men's 800m Final | World Athletics Championships Doha 2019
Welcome to the World Athletics Watch Party, join the conversation on Twitter with our hashtag #WatchWorldAthletics.
22-year-old Donavan Brazier earned his first major 800m title in a time of 1:42.34 – breaking the 32-year-old Championship and 34-year-old United States records. He also became the first US 800m runner – male or female - to win the world title.
After the field had reached the bell in 48.96, led through by Puerto Rico’s habitual front-runner Wesley Vazquez, Brazier moved decisively to the front halfway down the back straight and simply maintained his form all the way to the line to confirm his status as the favourite in the event.
