The US had 18 medals and dominated the points standings with 155, 43 ahead of runners-up Kenya.
Team USA took their 9th straight women's 4x400 gold (they've won every edition since 2002).
It was the narrowest margin of victory in meet history as she and Jamaica's Britany Anderson had the same time to the thousandths place so the tie breaker came to the 10-thousandths place. She became the first American U20 female to medal in the same event twice.
There was also a huge upset in the men's steeplechase as Kenya lost its first race since 1988 with Ethiopia's Takele Nigate getting the win in 8:25.35. Ethiopia also took the women's 1500 as Alemaz Samuel ran 4:09.67 and deemed it a "very easy" and "slow" race. Kenya's Solomon Lekuta won the 800 in 1:46.45.
Ingle writes, "Right now athletics feels like a sport fumbling uncertainly in the dark, trying to find a way to make the public care in the post-Bolt world. The Jamaican was not only its biggest weapon but its greatest crutch." We ask how can you make this assertion in 2018? Bolt usually raced sparingly in the regular season and 2018 is an "off" year with no major championship. Wait until 2019 to reevaluate the post-Bolt effect.
Kendricks won the PV with 5.83m just 48-hours after he won at the Rabat DL. Interesting side note: he used new poles which he says "take time to get used to like swining new golf clubs."
Coe says they've already had interest from other cities to host future editions of the event.
GB got just one win on day-2 in the women's 4x100 relay as they held off Jamaica. In his comeback from injury, former world champ Dai Greene was 3rd in the 400H won by US's Kenny Selmon (48.97).
