IAAF World Athletics Championships 2017: Wayde van Niekerk, Elaine Thompson and Indians in action on Day 3
Here's all you need to know about the schedule of events to be held in IAAF World Athletics Championship 2017 on Day 3.
In an anti-climax that not many saw coming, Usain Bolt was unable to clinch a gold in his farewell run at the IAAF World Athletics Championship 2017 on Saturday, instead finishing with a bronze, behind Christian Coleman and Justin Gatlin.
And now on Day 3, Wayde Van Niekerk, the man seeking to succeed Bolt as the sport's best athlete, sets off for double gold at the world championships in the 400 metres. The defending champion will face tough competition from Isaac Makwala of Botswana and Fred Kerley of the United States.
Another athlete that the world will be looking at on Day 3 would be Katarina Johnson-Thompson, whose medal hopes in Heptathlon have suffered a hit following her collapse in the high-jump event. With four events still remaining to be played in the seven-event Heptathlon, the British athlete would look to put her best foot forward on Day 3.
Jamaican Elaine Thompson would look to add another gold after her win in Olympics last year when she turns up for Women's 100 m event, which will be the last event of Day 3.
From the Indian perspective, the athletes to watch out for will include Swapna Barman in Heptathlon, Siddhanth Thingalaya in 110m hurdles, Gopi Thonakal in the marathon, Monika Athare in marathon and Nirmala Sheoran in Women's 400m.
