#Doha2019: Jamaica third behind USA, China in medals table

Jamaica is third in the medals table at the end of day four on Monday (Sept 30) of the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar.

The silver medal earned by Fredrick Dacres in the men’s discus on Monday brings the island’s tally of medals to four. These are two gold and two silver medals.

Jamaica collected three medals on Sunday, when Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce and Tajay Gayle won gold in the women’s 100 metres and men’s long jump respectively, with the mixed 4×400 metres relay team also getting silver.

The four medals place Jamaica behind the United States of America and China in both the quality and number of medals won.

USA have earned 13 medals so far, with four gold, seven silver and two bronze. China have a tally of six medals — two gold, two silver and two bronze.
