Five minutes short of 24 hours after the brilliance of Usain Bolt, his team-mate Shelly-Ann Fraser led home a clean sweep for the country to make Olympic 100m history. Her triumph in 10.78sec came ahead of Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart, who could not be separated in 10.98. They will both receive silver medals.It was the first time in the Olympics that one country had swept the women’s 100m and the first time over the distance since the US men in Stockholm in 1912. “We made history,” said Simpson. “We are all great athletes and I am very excited about the tremendous achievement we have made for our country.” Share on Facebook Share on WhatsApp Share via Email news … we have a small favour to ask.

Stewart said: “Coming into the Olympics people thought we were not experienced enough, but give us a chance to do something and we make the most of it.” The US appealed against the result, insisting that one of their own athletes should have been punished for a false start. Their complaint was thrown out, however. The race was another great spectacle, with Fraser leading all the way, but it was a night of triumph for the east Londoner Jeanette Kwakye. She was sixth in a personal best of 11.14 after becoming the first British woman to reach the Olympic 100m final since Heather Oakes in 1984. “That was just amazing,” said Kwakye, 25, who lives in Chingford. “It goes to show when it matters I can really do it and to be part of a race that included an unprecedented 1-2-3 for Jamaica was fantastic. The London Olympics are just on my doorstep, I drive past the Olympic sites every day on my way to training and to do well there is something I just can’t comprehend.”Christine Ohuruogu, the world champion, reached tomorrow’s 400m final and her performances this weekend have impressed Sanya Richards, the American who is the favourite for gold. After Richards won her semi-final in 49.90, she said: “The final is going to be tough. Christine looked great in the first round.” Ohuruogu won her semi in 50.14 and said: “I am fine. It’s all going to plan.”But she will not be joined by her fellow Briton Nicola Sanders, who took silver behind Ohuruogu in Osaka last summer. She finished fourth in her semi-final in 50.71, just missing out on one of the two places for fastest losers. “I gave it all I had but I just didn’t have enough left at the end,” she said. Andy Baddeley reached the 1500m final with another controlled performance, biding his time before making his move. In the build-up, Steve Ovett said Baddeley is capable of winning gold and he progressed by finishing third in his race in 3:37:47 – the same time as France’s double European champion Mehdi Baala. “I’ll have a good go whatever happens in the final,” said Baddeley. “It’s bloody hard work but that’s what it’s about, that’s why I have been training so hard.” Germaine Mason, Martyn Bernard and Tom Parsons of Team GB reached the high jump finals while Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele retained the 10,000m title, sprinting away to triumph in an Olympic record of 27:01:17. His team-mate Haile Gebrselassie, 35, the double Olympic champion at this distance, was sixth in 27:06.68. Russia’s Gulnara Galkina-Samitova improved her world record in the 3,000m steeplechase by winning in 8:58.81. Reuse this contentlast_img read more
