The United States, star of the World Athletics Championships. With 23 medals, the country is at the top of the rankings, far ahead of the French, left behind since Kevin Mayer’s abandonment.
Two of these medals were won by sprint star Noah Lyles. The American won on the 100 meters and the 200 meters. He is the first athlete to make this double since Usain Bolt in 2015. And this is the 27-year-old’s third consecutive 200-meter title. A champion with a strong character who sees far ahead.
