The delegation that represented Panama at the World Championship in Athletics, held in London, the United Kingdom, has already completed its participation, and without achieving significant results.

The first to participate in the athletic event was Jorge Castelblanco, who did not finish the marathon test after leaving the race after 20 kilometers.

The promise of competition, after last year's Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Alonso Edward also did not have the best of performances.

He could not make it to the semifinal on Monday after finishing fourth in his qualifying series of 200 meters flat marking a time of 20.61 seconds.

Another of our representatives on track, Gianna Woodruff, was eliminated in the semifinal round of the 400 meters hurdles.

The US-born but with Panamanian mother, had made her move to the semifinal round by finishing fourth on Monday, with a record of 56.50 seconds, or managed to make a good time to enter the final.

The best news from the Panamanian delegation at the event was when Woodruff's said that he would like to continue representing Panama.
