Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games

Christine Ohuruogu (coach: Lloyd Cowan) delighted the home crowd, winning the women's 400m in a world class 50.00. The Londoner had to really dig deep in the home straight to hold off America's Francena McCorory, and she was not only rewarded with victory, but a season's best clocking and the Sainsbury's performance of the day award too.

"I'm happy with the win and I ticked the box today. I put the result down to hard work and will go away and speak with my coach and see what we can work on for the World Championships," she said.

There was a very promising run for Shana Cox (George Harrison) who also clocked a season's best of 51.12 to finish fourth.


Jessica Ennis-Hill (Toni Minichiello) made an emotional return to competition, exactly one year on from her Olympic Games triumph. She contested both the 100m hurdles and the long jump to test her recovery from injury, which had forced her to delay the start of her season.

The hurdles were first up, and it also featured Olympic champion Sally Pearson and GB & NI's Tiffany Porter (Rana Reider). They took a 1-2, with Pearson clocking a season's best of 12.65, whilst Ennis-Hill was fourth with a 13.08 clocking.

"It is really nice to be back in the stadium a year on - obviously I have really good memories from last time. It's a bit of a different situation to last time, but it's great to be back in front of a home crowd and in the stadium," she said.

Meanwhile Porter added: "I had some bad aspects of the race but I'm happy to finish it and stay healthy. I'm very confident for Moscow. It's absolutely amazing to be here; I love running here."

Next up for Ennis-Hill was the long jump, but it was the girl tipped as the next Jess Ennis-Hill who stole the show. European Under 23 heptathlon champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson (Mike Holmes) took victory with the final jump of the competition, leaping to 6.46m, to delight the crowd just moments after Mo Farah's victory. Ennis-Hill finished eighth with a best jump of 6.16m.


Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce left nothing to chance in the women's 100m heats, clocking a world lead and meeting record of 10.77 to book her place in the final. There was also a season's best for Carmelita Jeter in second, whilst GB & NI junior Desiree Henry clocked a personal best of 11.50 further back. The second heat was won by Blessing Okagbare who broke the African record with a 10.86 clocking.

In the final it was the African record holder Okagbare who powered out of the blocks to win the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games 100m title and lower her African record further to 10.79. American Barbara Pierre equalled her personal best of 10.85 in second, with Kelly-Ann Baptiste third in 10.93. Jeter didn't start in the final as a precaution against a quadriceps injury.

In the women's 200m, victory went to yet another London 2012 Olympic champion, as Alyson Felix held her form in the closing metres to hold off Shalonda Solomon. Felix stopped the clock at 22.41 into a -0.5m/s headwind, whilst back in fourth, GB & NI's Anyika Onuora (Reider) set a personal best of 22.79. European Under 23 200m champion Jodie Williams (Stanley Madiri) was a couple of places further back thanks to her 23.06 clocking.


The women's shot put featured Olympic champion Valerie Adams and GB & NI's European Junior silver medallist from last weekend Sophie McKinna (Geoff Capes). As expected, Adams took the victory, wowing the crowd in the process. She threw over 20.70m four times, her best throw 20.90m in round five a world lead and new meeting record. McKinna finished ninth, just short of her personal best with a 16.81m throw.


Germany's Christina Obergfoll secured yet another Diamond League victory courtesy of a 65.61m throw in the women's javelin whilst Great Britain & Northern Ireland's Izzy Jeffs (David Parker) was eighth with a throw of 51.65m.
