Christine Ohuruogu (GBR) won gold in the 400m in the IAAF World T&F Championships in Moscow beating 2011 Champion Amantle Monsho in the last meter. The Lloyd Cowan coached athlete set a new British Record with 49.41 secs and took victory by just 4/1000ths of a second! Ohuruogu was understandably jubilant after saying “I can’t believe that has just happened. It all seems like a dream!” The victory makes Christine one of Britains most decorated female athletes and the first to ever win two World track titles.
In the evening session Schillonie Calvert (JAM) finished 4th in her 100m semi-final but did not advance to the final.
