Bowie wins 100m gold as Thompson fails to medal

Tomorrow's action

19:00 - Women's hammer final: This event features former ballet dancer Sophie Hitchon, who became the first British women to win an Olympic hammer medal with bronze in Rio last summer.

21:30 - Men's 110m hurdles final: Jamaica's Olympic champion Omar McLeod is the favourite but world record holder Aries Merritt is also in good form. Britain's Andrew Pozzi went out in the semi-finals.

21:50 - Women's 1500m final: Britain have twice won silver in this event - Hannah England (2011) and Lisa Dobriskey (2009) - but Muir will hope to be their first world champion. The Scot's main rivals look to be Faith Kipyegon and Genzebe Dibaba, while 800m Olympic champion Caster Semenya will also be a threat and British team-mate Laura Weightman will hope to snatch a medal.

Am I really world champion?

American Tori Bowie says it has not sunk in that she is the world 100m champion.

"I feel the hard work has finally paid off," she tells BBC Sport. "I couldn't be more happy. It hasn't even sunk in. Am I really the world champion?

Bowie fell after crossing the finishing line.

"I'm a bit bit sore but I'm pretty sure it is nothing major," adds the 26-year-old.

Holly Bradshaw's early failures at 4.65 really cost her a medal. She will learn from this.There is more to come from her for sure.

Power shift?


Jonathan Heeley: Putting the Bolt/Gatlin drama aside we have seen a power shift in sprinting from Jamaica to USA in these Worlds.

KJT is improving

I know inside Katerina Johnson-Thompson will be bitterly disappointed but she is improving.

Shock of the night

Women's 100m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

It is the shock of the night. Elaine Thompson was the favourite. It was impossible for her to catch up.

This was Tori Bowie's time. She took the opportunity to run a season's best when it counted.

Katerina Johnson-Thompson is trying to take the positives, but you sense it is a struggle.

This was how close it was between the top two.

It looked for all the world like the Ivory Coast's Marie Josee Ta Lou had it in the bag, but Tori Bowie's lunge for the line snatched the title.

The American was sent sprawling as she flung her momentum forward, but there is a shiny gold to go with the grazes.

No excuses from Thompson

Women's 100m final

Elaine Thompson is refusing to make excuses for her failure to win a medal.

"I tried to get a start," the Jamaican tells BBC Sport. "I don't know what happened, I'll have to look back and watch. I don't want to make excuses. It was a strong field and I competed with these girls all season."

Jamaica's Elaine Thompson

Jamaica suffers sprint setback

Women's 100m final

After Usain Bolt was usurped by Justin Gatlin last night, it is another body blow to Jamaica's recent sprint dominance.

It was way back in 2005 in Helsinki that they failed to land either the men's or women's 100m title at a world championships.

Schippers takes bronze

Women's 100m final

Dafne Schippers took bronze and it looks like a little stumble midway down the straight might have cost favourite Elaine Thompson.

The Jamaican is not giving away anything in her post-race interview with the BBC.

It was mighty close and red-hot favourite Elaine Thompson was nowhere.

Instead Tori Bowie's superb death-or-glory dip on the line sends her sprawling to gold, one hundreth ahead of Ivory Coasts Marie Josee Ta Lou.

The American clocks 10.85 seconds - a season's best - while Ta Lou is timed at 10.86, which is a personal best.

You want a bit of needle to the final?

Welcome Dafne Schippers.

The Dutchwoman, who finished second behind Elaine Thompson in the Rio 200m, has said she has a very bad relationship with the Jamaican.

"I am an easy person to talk to. If she won’t do that, then OK," she told the Daily Mail.

Johnson-Thompson positive about the future


Katerina Johnson-Thompson is concentrating on the positives after finishing outside a medal spot.

"I feel like one of these days it will happen for me," she tells BBC Sport.

"There is a lot to work on. It's been completely stripped mental attitude, the way I approach training, the way I approach each competition.

"Everyone said it was going to take a couple of years but I wanted it to come together at London 2017. But I feel very positive for the future."

Heartbreaking and confusing - Bradshaw

Women's pole vault final

Holly Bradshaw tells BBC Sport about her disappointment after finishing sixth in the final:

"It was really frustrating. I'm not sure what happened because I am in great shape, but the conditions were difficult. I don't want to use that as an excuse but everything seemed to go against me but fair play to the other women who performed out there.

"I am really heartbroken. I've worked so hard over the last few years to overcome injuries and I'm in the best shape of my life, but I am just really confused and disappointed.

"Just to be here is such a privilege and I'm trying not to lose sight of that. The crowd were amazing and I need to look to the future now and move on."

Women's 100m final


Right, to the headline act.

Elaine Thompson is the queen bee of women's sprinting after doing the 100m-200m double in Rio.

Will any of the others be able to overthrow the favourite?

The United States' Tori Bowie and Ivory Coast's Marie-Josee Ta Lou might be the closest.

Gold - Tom Walsh

Shot put final

American Joe Kovacs, the reigning world champion and Olympic silver medallist, thought he had snatched gold but his foot brushed the top of the circle to foul.

Instead it is Rio's bronze medallist Tom Walsh from New Zealand who takes the spoils...

The highlight of the evening in British terms. Kyle Langford runs through the line to book his place in the 800m final.

Kyle Langford, speaking to BBC Sport: "I had a bad run yesterday and I am learning all the time. My goal at the start of the season was to get to the final.

I kind of lost it a bit and got a bit cramped up with the group but I was able to finish strongly.

Men's 800m

Kipyegon Bett scampers clear to take the win ahead of Mohammad Aman.

But the shock is in the timings. Emmanuel Korir - the world leader - has been elimated along with Ferguson Rotich.

A truly deserved final spot for Kyle Langford. The 800m is one of Britain's great events and it's great to know we have someone in the final.

There was such a roar in the home straight and he's made 60,000 people inside the stadium very happy indeed. That roar. He will never hear the like of that again.

This is the best race he has ever run in his life.

The London 2012 wall of sound comes to the fore again as Kyle Langford is roared past world leader Emmanuel Korir and Poland's Marcin Lewandowski in the home straight to claim second and a spot in the final.

Canada's Brandon McBride was clear in front. A very strange sub-par performance from Korir.

800m semi-final

Nijel Amos was barged and battered on the back straight and that allowed world silver medallist from 2015 Adam Zszczot to get a clear line and press the pace to surge through after a sluggish first lap.

Ferguson Rotich has a nervous wait to see if his time survives the other two semi-finals to be one of the two fastest losing efforts.
