Two golf carts transporting the athletes from the warm-up field to the “National Athletics Center” stadium in Budapest, where the World Athletics Championships are held, collided violently: some of the athletes were traveling in one of the two electric vehicles, and shortly before that they were supposed to compete in the 200m semifinals line up Worst of all was a volunteer who was thrown from a car and injured his right leg, and Jamaican Andrew Hudson, who had a glass pulled from his eye. The game was postponed by 25 minutes. Hudson finished his semifinals in fifth place, a position he should have retired for. Instead, the jury extended the final to nine athletes on Friday, August 25th, in order to still be able to run given the impairment they suffered.
