Women's 60m heats
There were no surprises in the first round of the women's 60m, with Bahama's Olympic sprint relay gold medallist Chandra Sturrup was the most impressive. After a good start, Sturrup cruised to 7.14 - her fastest of the season. Bulgaria's Petya Pendareva also looked sharp, clocking 7.15 to win the first heat. Other likely contenders for medals are the 21 year-old US hope Angela Williams, who clocked 7.18, and Nigeria's powerful Endurance Ojokolo who ran 1/100th faster in heat 5. Ojokolo's team-mate Mercy Nku took the final heat with 7.16 - two metres clear of Portugal's Severina Cravid.
