The 11th World Athletics Championships (officially: 11th IAAF World Championships in Athletics Osaka 2007 ) were held from August 25th to September 2nd, 2007 in the Japanese city of Osaka . The competitions took place in the 50,000-seat Nagai Stadium , where two preliminary round matches and a quarter-final had been played during the 2002 World Cup . 1978 athletes from 200 countries took part.
Osaka was awarded the contract by the Council of the International Athletics Federation (IAAF) on November 15, 2002 after all other cities withdrew their applications.
The opening ceremony took place on August 25 at 5:00 p.m. and the closing ceremony on September 2 at 9:30 p.m. On September 1st, there were two invitation races for wheelchair users over 1500 meters.
Like the World Athletics Championships in Edmonton in 2001 , in Paris in 2003 and in Helsinki in 2005 , these World Championships also suffered significantly from the doping problem due to subsequent examinations and findings. Immediately after the World Championships, there were press reports with reports that these were among other things. U. the first world championships in twenty years without doping findings. But there, too, the skepticism can be felt, which should be confirmed by subsequent results. Six athletes were affected this time, whose placements / medals had to be revoked due to violations of the doping regulations.
- Andrej Michnewitsch , Belarus - Shot put (initially 3rd)
- Jelena Sobolewa , Russia - 1500 meter run (initially 2nd)
- Julija Fomenko , Russia - 1500 meter run (initially 7th)
- Elvan Abeylegesse , Turkey - 5000 meter run (initially 5th) and 10,000 meter run (initially 2nd)
- Chrysopigi Devetzi , Greece - triple jump (initially 3rd)
- Darja Pishchalnikova , Belarus - Discus throw (initially 2nd)
In August 2017, a seventh female athlete joined these doping cases:
There were several athletes who could look forward to multiple successes.
- Tyson Gay , USA - 100 yards , 200 yards and 4 x 100 yards
- Bernard Lagat , USA - 1500 and 5000 meters
- Jeremy Wariner , USA - 400 meters and 4 by 400 meters relay
- Allyson Felix , USA - 400 yards , 4 by 100 meter relay and 4 by 400 meter relay

The 100 meter final ended surprisingly: Despite Gay's good season results, Powell was the clear favorite. Even in the semifinals he was superior; he was clearly wasting time and still stayed at a time under 10 seconds, while Gay achieved a largely evenly running 10 seconds, but nevertheless showed great reserves. Not a few therefore expected a new world record for the final. While Gay only started moderately in the finals and only really came up at the end, Powell was slightly in the lead right from the start and was even able to extend this up to 60 meters. Unexpectedly, however, he lost two to three meters to the rest of the field in the last third of the race and ran upright across the line, clearly disappointed.

The run in Osaka, which was held at temperatures above 30 ° C and a humidity of about 80%, was the slowest world championship marathon ever. Of the 85 athletes who started, only 57 made it to the finish line. Luke Kibet pulled away from his first international championship at kilometer 31 and ran out over a minute before the finish. The Swiss Viktor Röthlin had divided the race well and worked his way up from sixth to bronze in the last two kilometers. Ulrich Steidl ( GER ) finished 37th in 2:30:03 h and suffered a circulatory collapse shortly after reaching the finish line. Marcel Tschopp ( LIE ) finished in 47th place in 2:33:42 h.

Despite the early start time, this competition suffered from extreme external conditions and organizational inadequacies (after about an hour there were no more wet sponges to cool off). Several tasks and breakdowns occurred. Of more than 50 participants who started, only 31 reached the finish. Dramatic scenes played out on the track and in the stadium: Several athletes had to be carried out due to dehydration , and the winner also collapsed with a cramp immediately after crossing the finish line.
The only German participant, André Höhne , suffered a serious collapse 200 meters from the finish in the stadium, lying in fourth position, and had to be taken to hospital. Previously, instead of entering the stadium, he had followed a lapped walker 50 meters without being notified of his mistake. As usual, there were numerous disqualifications due to unclean walking: the reigning Olympic champion was taken out of the race 5 kilometers from the finish. The circumstances surrounding the silver medal were also spectacular: Second-placed walker Francisco Javier Fernández, who clearly overtook his Tunisian opponent, who was clearly ahead of him, only shortly before the finish line, was initially disqualified, but received the silver medal back after a successful protest.

Chinese Yu Chaohong dominated the first half of the competition after pulling away from the field with Spaniard Santiago Perez. Ultimately, around the middle of the race, Yu was overtaken by a group of three with Nathan Deakes, Wladimir Kanaikin and Yuki Yamazaki. Yohann Diniz had gone his own pace until then, when he overtook the leading group, Deakes went with him and shortly afterwards pulled away from Diniz.

Iwan Zichan , the 2003 world champion, who was subsequently deprived of the 2005 world championship title, which was again awarded in 2005, because of doping, and who was also doped in 2006, was out of the medal ranks for a long time in the final. With his sixth and last attempt, he secured the gold medal and relegated his competitor Primož Kozmus to second place. Third place was no less contested: Libor Charfreitag won bronze after just surpassing the distance of the 2005 vice world champion, Wadsim Dzewjatouski, with his sixth litter.

For them it was the first world championship title after two Olympic gold medals in Athens in 2004 .

The Turkish Elvan Abeylegesse , who was initially fifth , was subsequently convicted of doping and banned for two years. Her results at these world championships - apart from fifth place here over 5000 meters and silver over 10,000 meters - were canceled.

This competition did not go as expected: Although Tirunesh Dibaba won a favorite, the triple success aimed at by the Ethiopians did not materialize. Dibaba's older sister Ejegayehu fell and therefore lost some places, her compatriot Mestawet Tufa got out with circulatory problems.
In this race, the Turkish Elvan Abeylegesse first won the silver medal, which, like her fifth place over 5000 meters, was deprived of her after she was subsequently convicted of doping and banned for two years.

Just like the men's competition, the women's competition took place under extreme weather conditions. With temperatures around 30 ° C, it took a long time before preliminary decisions were made. At kilometer 20, 28 runners were still tied at the top. Only at kilometer 35 did the eight participants who were also ahead at the end clear away. The decision about the medal ranks was made in the last two kilometers, when Catherine Ndereba pulled away and defended a narrow lead to the finish. Reiko Tosa, cheered on by the spectators, was able to intercept Zhu Xiaolin, who was in third place, one kilometer from the finish and almost worked his way up to second-placed Zhou Chunxiu.
Melanie Kraus ( GER ) divided the race well. Still in 35th place at kilometer 25, she finished 20th in the end. The second German runner Susanne Hahn , who came in 43rd , had more problems . Kerstin Metzler-Mennenga ( LIE ), who, as it later turned out, had qualified through sports fraud, came in 53rd place. Out of 66 runners who started, 57 reached the finish.
Kenya won the unofficial team classification in 7:35:02 h (Catherine Ndereba; Rita Jeptoo Sitienei; Edith Masai) ahead of China in 7:35:52 h (Zhou Chunxiu; Zhu Xiaolin; Zhang Shujing , 2:33:46 h) and Japan in 7:37:39 h (Reiko Tosa; Kiyoko Shimahara; Mari Ozaki , 2:35:04 h).

It came to the expected victory of the favored US season. Nevertheless, it got tight again at the finish line, as Campell came up strongly and Edwards only ran the last few meters. The German season remained within its possibilities with good changes after it was temporarily disqualified due to an alleged change error in the run-up.
