Lynsey Sharp of Great Britain has not done a thing wrong at these European Athletics Championships, but the defending champion had no answer to the finishing speed of Belarus athlete Maryna Arzamazova, who took gold in 1:58.15, the fastest run in Europe this year.

 

Sharp’s compensation was a time of 1:58.80, well inside last month’s personal best of 1:59.67. Poland’s Joanna Jozwik also clocked a personal best, 1:59.63, to take bronze.

Sharp’s fellow Scot Eilidh Child, like her a Commonwealth silver medallist, went one better here as she hung onto her lead down the straight despite heavy pressure from Anna Titimets to take 400m hurdles gold in 54.48. Ukraine’s World Student Games champion took silver in a personal best of 54.56 with Russia’s Irina Davydova beating the Czech Republic’s Denisa Rosolova to bronze in 54.60
