The results are in and you have voted Usain Bolt’s 200m victory as your Performance of Day 6.

After already winning the fans’ voting on day two of the championships, Bolt was triumphant in yet another round, collecting 53.01% of the votes of which half consisted of the website vote below and half of a live WeChat vote amongst spectators in the stadium during day seven’s morning session.

His 200m display on day six left no room for doubt over the world record holder’s fitness, as he went on to win his fourth consecutive 200m world title. His time of 19.55 was the fastest he’d run since the London Olympics three years ago and mean he now holds the record for most individual world titles with seven golds – 4x over 200m and 3x over 100m. To relive the race, head over here.


Of course cheering on your favourite athletes at the world championships is one thing, but we want the fan experience to go further than that.

The IAAF, in conjunction with Official Partner adidas, is asking you, the fan, to vote for your favourite performance of each day. After every evening session, a panel of experts will pick three athletes, who in any shape or form grabbed their imagination and will leave it to you to choose the winner.

Today's shortlist features a record medallist, a last round hero and a record-breaking world record holder.

Usain Bolt

The pressure on him eased off a little after his 100m victory on Saturday, but he wouldn’t be Bolt if he wasn’t going to make the double. The Jamaican won the 200m convincingly in 19.55, easing down before the line. He’s now got a staggering seven individual golds to take the record for most world championship medal off Sergey Bubka.

Christian Taylor

After being ranked second until the fourth round, the American improved leader Pichardo’s 17.60m mark by eight centimetres. But he wouldn’t be Taylor, would he not pull one out of the bag in the final round, like he did so many times before. He hopped, stepped and jumped his way to a historic 18.21m, the second farthest distance in history and within 8cm reach of Jonathan Edwards’ world record.

Anita Wlodarczyk

She went in as the overwhelming favourite, and wasn’t messing around. The Polish world record holder did not crumble under the pressure of expectation and local opposition Wenxiu Zhang, and dominated with a championship record 80.85m. Even more impressive, four out of her six attempts (of which one was a foul) would have secured her the title.
