7:41 pm
conditioned in the stadium you know i thought we would use that to our advantage this was actually the 1st place 80 meters because i was in my element you know it was easy to to move easy to despond that flow so i'm really interested to see how it will be qualifications kind of get a feel for going through the call rooms and seeing how much they are pumping that ac it would be nice for the spectators and i'm sure the distance runners but hopefully it's not too cool for us are you talking about sort of jumping on your part of that exclusive club i mean do you think with the conditions such they are in for a very strong feel that you're competing against that jonathan had with world records which has been there since like 9095 yeah that's what you think you have being 5 years old and the record go down you know no notice for me but yes i believe the elements are there you know this is really the best package this was my 1st 18 metre so. it's a special city for me. but the competition is there's a lot of debt there would be very you know the competitors to top shape this way
7:42 pm
was prepared for but we need to surpass i don't want to think about even tying you know the measurement 2015 i was a bit short you know a centimeter short but now the goal is to go well beyond it's funny to look at what a record is one of those iconic world record because you had before jonathan it was before i was with the banks it's always taken a while for that recklessly broke it once it's broken it seems to stay there for a while so yes if you do get that will be huge absolutely i said you know i'm not greedy i don't want it i don't even need to be the 1st person to break it i just want to be the last you know that it's really outstanding 50 plus years i don't want to see my record be broken i know they're meant to be but you know i'd like this one to stand as. the other one is to no more than 20 years. well the whole is here with me now and this to follow that was an interesting interview with kristin thinking he doesn't seem to be bothered by the heat but i hear it's still challenging for other athletes i han't they have come up with them new technology
7:43 pm
that they're trying here and tell us more about bases it's a pill for moment and it's exactly how it sounds it's a pill that you swallow and it measures you're core temperature this is something i was developed by nasa and it's been used in other sports like for me the one about the drivers and in football i think the 1st time it's been used in athletics some some of the athletes all of them will be able to take in this pill i just met your coach temperature and they will collect data and to see how the athletes are conditioning 'd in these very so humid temperatures i will come in very handy actually the data that i collect had of those tokyo lympics next year because the temperatures that you'll find in japan in the summer were very similar to what was funny. little who let's talk about these i think championships they had the 1st competition post use involved. who are the athletes so who do we need to watch on that or that's what i mean it he still looms large after that it's not just because of his performances because of the personality that he was but it offers a great opportunity for some new knights or some new superstars that's
7:44 pm
a come out of these world championships and in that lead up to those. lympics but again picked out a few names for you to watch out for deena after smith from the u.k. she's a young british sprinter she's already the european champion in the 10200 meters should be going for 3 golds here in doha and she's one of the names to watch out for she is very very very good television she's very pop in the u.k. i don't think she's going to be one of the big stars. in the men's events the u.s. sprint to noah lyles a lot of people say he could be the new you sign both as much for his personality as again for his performance on the track he's great in the 200 meters he's won the 4th fastest 200 meters this year all time. michael johnson a very quick of his back in the 100 meters that could be a real blockbuster a very very large role in that this question call the number one sprint in the world this year but our think young african sprinter from large area would adore he could become one of the 1st was the 1st sprinter from africa to in gold out these
7:45 pm

7:50 pm
donald trump as the ukrainian president to investigate his political rival joe biden our correspondent john hendren begins our coverage from washington. as the 4th u.s. president to face an impeachment threat donald trump is scrambling to elude history it's a joke no president yet has been removed from office through impeachment on wednesday the united states' 45th president sounding unusually said dude seem to feel history's wait it's very sad what the democrats are doing to this country they're dividing they're belittling they're demeaning a country so many leaders came up to me today and they said. what you go through no president has ever gotten through the white house's own account of a july phone call between president trump and ukrainian president villota mirror's alinsky was released wednesday it revealed that is trump was withholding 2 $150000000.00 in aid from ukraine he repeatedly asked vilinsky for in his words
7:51 pm
a favor investigate former vice president joe biden for trump's potential presidential rival trump asked selenski to coordinate the probe with u.s. attorney general bill barr and trump's personal lawyer rudy giuliani trump without offering evidence accuses biden of ending a conflict of interest probe into his son hunter biden took a lucrative position on the board of ukraine's biggest gas company in 2014 while his father was directing u.s. policy there in the summary of the phone calls alinsky promised his top prosecutor in his words will look into the situation but with trump at his side ukraine's leader says he did not pursue it i'm sorry but i don't want to be involved to do a critic all. elections and i think. anyone you know that that had a question and that is the answer a whistleblower in the u.s. intelligence community alarmed by trump's apparent use of state power for political
7:52 pm
gain reported the president's call to an inspector general however the complaint was not passed on to congress under instruction from the white house and the justice department amid the fear it has now been passed to lawmakers i found the legations a deeply disturbing i also found them very credible i can understand why the inspector general found them credible the house intelligence committee received the whistleblower report on wednesday on thursday acting director of national intelligence joseph mcguire testifies before congress that session is now part of a formal impeachment inquiry into the president. asked about the call trump repeatedly turned the focus on biden i fully support transparency on the so-called whistleblower information even though it was supposedly secondhand information which is sort of interesting but also insist on transparency from joe biden and his
7:53 pm
son hunter on the millions of dollars that have been quickly and easily taken out of ukraine and china now trumps efforts to prompt an investigation into his rival have instead helped to prompt another historic probe when intended to decide whether he is fit to remain in office john hendren al jazeera washington. and mike hanna joins us now from washington d.c. ahead of that hearing mike what's expected to happen today. well it could be explosive on a number of levels the acting director of national intelligence joseph maguire reportedly threatened to resign unless he was allowed to present that complaint to congress these whole process that occurred here was that he received the complaint he then took advice from the justice department which went to the white house counsel decided initially that this report would not be released to congress now this was against the law theoretically the d.n.c.
7:54 pm
has got one week to release that report to congress hence the subpoena the d.n.c. the acting d.n.c. appearing before the house intelligence committee in the course of the day he's not only going to be asked about the contents of that report but also about the white house process in terms of dealing with that now we do know from the specter general of the intelligence department that there's more to these could this complaint than just the single phone call and certainly that is something that the intelligence committee will be exploring in the course of the morning. right we've heard you know what's going on in congress but what's the wider reaction to this so what do the american public think about this. well there's a degree of confusion a degree of apprehension and of course there is a degree to which reaction is split along party lines this country deeply divided on a number of issues and certainly on this particular issue it is largely along party
7:55 pm
lines democrats welcoming the move to impeachment republicans deeply concerned about it and many opposing it but there has been a difference in this particular case with there has been a slightly more muted reaction from republicans we saw for example and precedent it in a way you know misspoke in the senate demanding that the whistleblower complaint be brought to congress so certainly there may be a shift in terms of the regular reaction on a partisan basis thank you very much mike hanna in washington for us france is mourning the death of the former president jacques chirac his son in law says the 86 year old died peacefully surrounded by his family that talks about takes a look back at his life. he forged his own path through a political career spanning 5 decades mayor of paris prime minister twice and president for 12 years jacques chirac held almost all the top jobs he was one of the most to prominent politicians in post-war frog's chirac was born in paris in
7:56 pm
1032 after receiving a privilege education his political prowess was clearly evident he spent the night 150 s. working in the civil service before becoming a protege of prime minister george pompidou after that his climb was steep and fast within 12 years he was prime minister a role where he would push for welfare reform his march to the lease a palace began after he left the cabinet becoming mayor of paris in 1977 where he set his eyes on the presidency it would be almost 20 years before he would gain his seat in the elisei he was elected promising tax cuts and more jobs but within months there was a general strike bringing millions into the streets during his time in office he championed the single currency but the budget of the lease a sword in 2003 the us president george bush failed to persuade chirac to join the invasion of iraq winning the french leader praise from some quarters 2 years later
7:57 pm
chirac failed to persuade his own people to vote for a new european constitution memories of his leadership will be sullied by the corruption during his 18 years as paris may 2011 he was convicted of embezzlement jacques chirac though was a consummate french politician a survivor but his legacy is uncertain and damaged by his personal failures and joins me now from paris he is our girl arguably one of france's longest serving politicians are there what do you think people will remember him the most for. well i think jacques chirac is probably a politician that people remember because so many people know him generations of people really young and old because his career lasted so long spanning decades you saw their twice president twice prime minister the mayor of paris a major job of course and he was in that position for 18 years as well as serving
7:58 pm
as a minister of various times so he is someone who has been in public life for so long and in terms of reputation many people have always said that he was above you know man you really seem to enjoy life enjoyed food enjoyed the finer things in life but he was also somebody who could be quite blunt politically he could sometimes change his opinions if he thought it would make him more popular but he was certainly popular with extremely popular with his supporters who many of them who are very close to him indeed in staged by his side throughout his whole career including even during that corruption trial you saw there 2011 he was accused of corruption in relation to his time as the mayor in paris or just so you know we've also heard that the in the assembly m.p.'s and senators are actually held a minute of silence and as you can imagine here in france many people who knew him in the past to work to the politicians are in fact reacting to the news that one of
7:59 pm
france's well most famous political figures has died indeed and what was the fear of him in the international community particularly he was very much against the iraq war he and he made a lot of controversial decisions to. yes it was someone who was very keen on pushing from the international stage she had multi-polar view of the world if you like in in many respects it's very similar to emmanuel montreal today that has a multilateral vision of the world seeing fronts as the center as a country that can talk to all sides this was also jacques chirac and of course he became quite famous around the world if you like in 2003 for a poet opposing the u.s. led invasion on iraq he thought that that would just lead to more anti western sentiment and it wouldn't be in anyone's benefit indeed that said he was always
8:00 pm
very close to the u.s. he was somebody who spoke english fluently for example and after the attacks on new york in 2001 on september 11th it was actually rock in fact he was the 1st foreign leader to visit the united states and there thank you very much. chief executive is holding her 1st community dialogue session but protesters are chanting outside the venue this is live these are live pictures from inside the venue where kerry will hear the concerns of 12050 citizens some people outside the venue have formed a human chain and are holding signs accusing the chief executive of not meeting their demands under pressure to step down is hoping that these sessions will end the protests in hong kong have been running for about 16 weeks it's got harder now i can join us for more on the scott you're just outside the venue and there seems to be somewhat something of a protest there can you tell us more about the atom.
