Final of the women's 60 metres

Women 60m final

Olympic sprint relay champ Chandra Sturrup made the most of a great start to win the women's 60m, powering clear of Angela Williams to win the title in 7.05 - a new personal best.

The world's fastest this year, Petya Pendareva, left her best performance in the semi-final. The Bulgarian was never a factor, reacting sluggishly to the gun and finishing sixth with 7.16.

Williams' set a personal best of 7.09 for silver, with her team mate Chryste Gaines taking the bronze with 7.12, also a personal best.
