Meanwhile Osayemi Oludamola of Nigeria who finished second in 11.32s had been reawarded the gold medal after a disqualification of Australia’s Sally Pearson. Natasha Mayers of St Vincent and The Grenadines took the silver in 11.37s while English, Katherine Endacott who did a personal best of 11.44s grabbed the bronze medal.

Sally Pearson was disqualified for false start after being declared a winner in the women’s 100m run following protest by England athletics team.
