QUOTE OF THE DAY
"Im a sprinter now. I wanted to win and run under 22 seconds and I did both. But this time I can´t believe it. I stayed relaxed the last 30, 40 meters and that's why I won, I think. Tomorrow, I'm with the (relay) team and I hope we can maybe go for a medal. I still miss one (for the set)," Dafne Schippers after sensational 200 m.
RESULT OF THE DAY
21.63 European record by Dafne Schippers in the 200 m, fourth best performance, third best performer, fastest since 1998.
SURPRISE OF THE DAY
Jamaican Danielle Williams winning the 100 m hurdles when running twice personal best in semifinal 12.58 and final 12.57 (her sister Shermaine was 7th).
