Set to decide who takes home the Athletics World Cup trophy, the eight nations’ bid to continue scoring maximum points will pick back up at pace on Sunday.
The Cup is set to conclude with the men’s 100m and 4x400m and women’s 4x100m, following which the winning nation will be presented with the Athletics World Cup trophy.
