Shingo Suetsugu shrugged off a late start to win the bronze medal in the men’s 200 meters final at the World Championships on Friday, becoming the first Japanese medalist in a sprint at either the Olympics or worlds.

Suetsugu had to dig deep after the turn to finish in a tight group with a time of 20.38 seconds, just behind Americans John Capel and Darvis Patton, who clocked 20.30 and 20.31, respectively, at the Stade de France.
