Cali – Press of the WSSP. With the results of the 500 meters route, Colombia has the Cali World Championships title in the classification by points; it already had won in the track and tonight won the route. Tomorrow the relays competitions are going to be race, outcome that is going to influence the medals board but not the general classification by points. Extra officially, Colombia has accumulated 2.554 points, product of the 1.423 from track and 1.131 from route. Italy is second with 2.415 (1.296-1.119) and South Korea Third with 2.392 units (1.320 – 1.072). In the medals list, Colombia has 11 gold medals, 12 silver medals and 9 bronze medals; Korea is second with 10 of gold, 7 silver and 8 of bronze; while USA is third with 7 of gold, 3 silver and 4 bronze. In the penultimate day of route with just one competition to go before the marathon on Saturday by which the World Championships are going to be finish, USA had great performances. In the 500, Brittany Bowe and Joseph Mantia from the senior category won the gold medals that added 7 in total. This day also made history, because of the extra official- world record made by Bowe. The previus marc was made by the Colombian Jennifer Caicedo with 43.478, the American’s was 42.14. Jennifer today was third followed by her team partner Jerci Puello who also surpassed last year’s registered time. When the Colombian could almost feel the triumph the American surprised them. In the junior category, the South Korean So Yeon Shin and the Colombian Joseph Izquierdo were the stars with the gold medals. Bowes record is the eight made during these championships, but we have to remind that the CIC has a month to endorse them. These are the official 500 meters results:
