Blessing Okagbare wins Gold in Women’s 200m to seal sprint double

Blessing Okagbare wins Gold in Women's 200m to seal sprint doubleThe two English sprinters ran personal best times, as did their compatriot Anyika Onuora, who took fourth.

England’s Jazmin Sawyers won silver in the women’s long jump but Shara Proctor had to pull out after picking up an injury attempting her first jump.

Sawyers, a Winter Youth Olympic games silver medallist in the bobsleigh, recorded a distance of 6.54 metres to finish second behind Nigeria’s Ese Brume.

There were tears for Proctor, though, who pulled up halfway down the runway holding her left thigh, and was unable to continue.

Jodie Williams and Bianca Williams shed tears of a different kind by claiming respective silver and bronze in the 200m.
