BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Britain’s Josh Kerr pulled off the biggest upset of the world championships, outrunning heavily favored Jakob Ingebrigtsen of Norway to the line for a win in the 1,500 meters. Kerr finished in 3 minutes, 29.28 seconds to join Jake Wightman as the second British runner in two years to upset Ingebrigtsen at worlds. A few minutes later, another Norwegian avoided the same fate. Olympic champion and world-record holder Karsten Warholm ran away from a stacked 400-meter hurdle field to climb back on top in that race after injuries derailed him last year.
