Athletics Worlds

FILE - In this Wednesday, April 9, 2014 file photo, former marathon world record holder Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie, poses for photographers at a hotel in London. Gebrselassie says it was wrong to hold the track and field world championships in Qatar and marathon runners could have died from the heat. The women’s marathon Friday, Sept. 27, 2019 started at midnight to dodge the worst of the heat in Qatar but was still held in humidity that made it feel like 105 degrees (40 Celsius). Twenty-eight of the 68 women dropped out and one was briefly hospitalized.
