KIRANI: “I Can’t Explain This Loss” Featured

KIRANI: “I Can’t Explain This Loss”

Kirani James, the Grenadian wunderkind who brought home his country’s first-ever gold medal in London last summer, finished seventh in the 400M at the World Championships in Moscow on Tuesday.

The gold was taken by LaShawn Merritt, long considered James’ only challenger, who finished in 43.74, the fastest 400 time by anyone this year. Merritt was followed by countryman Tony McQuay and the Dominican Republic’s Luguelin Santos, who finished in 44.52.

James finished in 44.99, ahead of only last-place finisher Anderson Henriques, who finished in 45.03. The 20-year-old James looked to have lost steam throughout the latter portion of the race. But if history is any indicator, this will only fuel the young Grenadian’s fire through the rest of the Diamond League season and the years to come.

 

“It didn’t go as planned. Actually I died in the last 100m of the race, and that don’t usually happen. But I will just try to move on as soon as I can. My last 100 wasn’t as fluid, and as smooth and as strong as it usually would be.” - Kirani
