Being the youngest in the field didn’t deter Talea Prepens, nor did the fact that it was just the sixth 200m final of her fledgling career. The 15-year-old produced her second PB of the championships to win the girls’ 200m title in 23.51, becoming Germany’s first winner of a world U18 title in a flat sprint event.

Marisleisys Duarthe could have retired from the girls’ javelin final after the first round and she would have still walked away with the gold medal. But the Cuban continued churning out big throws round after round in an effort to improve on her own world U18 best of 65.44m.

It was a dominant performance by the two Kenyan girls in the 800m final, with Jackline Wambui taking the gold in 2:01.46, equalling the world U18 lead, and her teammate Lydia Jeruto Lagat second in a PB of 2:02.06.

South Africa stormed to another one-two in the 200m final on Sunday, though 100m medallists Retshidisitswe Mlenga and Tshenolo Lemao swapped positions, closing out the nation's dominance in the boys' short-sprint events at the IAAF World U18 Championships Nairobi 2017.

In the final event of the championships, it was not the hosts Kenya, or indeed the sprint superpowers Jamaica or South Africa who would have the last laugh, but outsiders Brazil who controlled the race from start to finish to win in 3:21.71.

Britany Anderson of Jamaica ran 12.72, the fastest ever 100m hurdles time by an U18 athlete, in winning the final.

Matthias Orban of France lived up to expectations on Sunday (16) by dominating the boys' pole vault final on the last day of the IAAF World U18 Championships Nairobi 2017.
