Ahead of the competition, we asked reigning national 100m (9.98sNR) champion and now Ghana coach Leo Myles Mills his memories of competing at the WC.

Below were his thoughts:

“One of my most memorable moments competing in the WC was in Seville, Spain 1999. My ultimate goal was to make finals, you know! But unfortunately I missed it, missed narrowly making the 100m finals. I was so sad. I was upset after that because I was in a great shape, excited to compete at the finals. I stumbled coming out of the blocks and it cost me. By the time I was able to mold myself back into the race it was over. It cost me big time! But I witnessed something remarkable: Michael Johnson breaking the world record in the 400m. That was fun to see.”
