With six gold medals on offer, Day 6 of the World Championships in Moscow is certain to bring about “outstanding achievements, new stars, new records and positive emotions,” as Russian President Vladimir Putin so eloquently put it during the event's opening ceremony.

As well as a number of qualification rounds, heats and semi-finals, up for grabs are gold medals in the high jump, with Britain's Olympic bronze medalist Robert Grabarz in action, and long jump before four track events get underway.

Starting from 17:20 GMT, athletes will compete for the title of world champion in the men's 3000-meter steeplechase and the 400m hurdles as well as the women's 1500m and 400m.

Men's High Jump Final

Grabarz will reignite his battle with Russia's Ivan Ukhov and USA's Erik Kynard, Jr. in the first of the afternoon events. Grabarz, who claimed a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics, was pipped to the post in London by the Russian and the American, who took gold and silver respectively.

If the 25-year-old Brit is to collect a medal this year, however, he'll need to improve on his season's best of 2.31m. Only three athletes of the 12 in the starting list have failed to record a higher score than that of Grabarz this year.

With two British athletes in the women's final, hopes of a medal couldn't be higher. Perri Shakes-Drayton and Eilidh Child stormed into the showpiece race, clocking very impressive times.

Shakes-Drayton ran a 53.92—the second-fastest qualifying time—while Child notched a 54.22. 

British champion Shakes-Drayton will go head-to-head with favourite Zuzana Hejnova of the Czech Republic.

Following her qualification for the final, Shakes-Drayton told the BBC: "I feel good. I would love to come home with some kind of bling, but we won't say too much, we will just wait and see."

 

Women's 1500m Final

British hopeful Hannah England competes in a very strong field in the final of the women's 1500m, vying for a spot on the podium.

England qualified for a spot in Thursday's final with an impressive time of 4:06.80—with only six of the athletes on the starting list having clocked a better time this season.

Although a medal around her neck tomorrow evening is the ultimate aim, England has already achieved her target for the World Championships by just getting to the final, as reported by The Independent
