BERLIN -- Former BYU All-American Josh McAdams competed in the 12th IAAF World Championship in Berlin, Germany on Sunday, August 16.

McAdams ran in the second heat of the 3000-meter steeplechase and finished with a time of 9:02.19, failing to advance to the finals of the event.

This was McAdams second appearance at the IAAF Championships. In 2007 he ran in the 30000-meter steeplechase in Osaka, Japan.
