Italy is looking for a tough but not impossible final in the women’s 4×100 event. Dosso, Fontana, Kadari and Bongiorni are supposed to be at first, but Syragusa and Pavese are available. Since the 2005 World Cup in Helsinki, USA and Jamaica They are fighting for the title, and even in this round it’s hard to think of some of the entries from behind, where they’ve been scratching.

The British can have their say Dina Asher Smith, Doha gold. The United States is also betting on Gabriel Thomas.
