6. In a crazy 800m, Nia Akins kept her calm, ran a PB of 1:57.36, and won the race. Allie Wilson slipped by Juliette Whittaker, who took silver and bronze. Athing Mu had fallen at 200 meters, and while an appeal was filed by Athing’s coach, USATF denied the appeal. Athing Mu, short on racing, was caught in the congestion of the field at 200 meters and will not defend her title in Paris.
