Six gold medals will be decided on Saturday, the second day of the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019, including those in the shortest and longest distances on the overall program.

The IAAF World Athletics Championship kicked off at Khalifa International Stadium and on Doha Corniche on Friday and will continue until October 6.

Traditionally, the 100m is a highlight, and the men's title will be the final event at Khalifa International Stadium. Following that, the men's and women's 50km race walks will be decided on the Corniche.

There will also be heats of the first-ever mixed relay on a World Championships program - the 4x400m - leading to the final on day three.

Qatari athlete Awab Othman Baro will compete in the 100m race, while Abu Bakr Haidar will compete in the 800m race alongside teammate Jamal Hiran.

In the men's 100m, world silver medalist Christian Coleman, the year's fastest, will be hoping to move up a step this time around. Andre De Grasse, Akani Simbine, Hakim Sani Brown and Yohan Blake will be among many fancying their chances in a wide-open field, but first, they must get through to semi-finals earlier in the evening.
