American Donavan Brazier, the ward of controversial coach Alberto Salazar, won the 800-meter final of the Doha World Cup, less than a day after his coach's four-year suspension for inciting doping.
Brazier, who employed 1: 42.34, is the second of Salazar's trained athletes to achieve gold in Doha, after the Dutchman Sifan Hassan's victory in 10.000 meters.
The silver of the 800 meters went to the Bosnian Amel Tuka (1: 43.47) and the bronze to the Kenyan Ferguson Cheruiyot Rotich (43.82).
In another test, the American Sam Kendricks revalidated the pole vault world title by prevailing with a mark of 5,97 meters on the 19-year-old Swede Armand Duplantis -silver with the same record- and the Polish Piotr Lisek, who stayed in 5,87, XNUMX. AFP
