Following on from the midweek report from the IAAF World Championships, The Aviva Great Britain and Northern Ireland responded again with many more fine performances and individual medals from Jenny Meadows and Lisa Dobriskey along with a UK record for Greg Rutherford.

The men’s 4x100m relay squad of Simeon Williamson, Tyrone Edgar, Marlon Devonish and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey claimed the bronze medal in a season’s best of 38.02. The final event of the championships saw the British 4x400m relay squad of Conrad Williams, Robert Tobin, Michael Bingham and Martyn Rooney Britain win their sixth medal in a season’s best of 3:00.53 to finish in the silver medal position behind the American quartet.

Back at home, the British Athletics League Premiership match at Newham proved that the athletes not picked for Berlin were still trying to maintain their good form right until the end of the season. The hammer in particular proved to be a top-class competition with many of the top athletes being very close to one another in an exciting competition.
