Jenny Meadows added to Britain's medal tally last night as she won a bronze medal in the 800 metre world final.
The twenty eight year old, who was in her first major global final, stormed through the field in the final one hundred metres to claim third spot.
She told the BBC: "I thought a medal was up for grabs as long as I kept my composure. I did. I was actually gutted I didn't get silver in the end, but a medal is a medal at the end of the day and I really can't complain.
The race was won by favourite Caster Semenya from South Africa who is currently surrounded in a gender controversy.
The IAAF, athletic's governing body, announced last night that the eighteen year old South African would have to take a gender test after suspicions had arisen.
Defending champion Janeth Jepkosgei, who was reinstated after a fall in an early round, was second, almost piped on the line by Meadows.
Michael Bingham qualified for the men's 400 metre final after finishing behind defending champion Jeremy Wariner in his semi final.
But there was disappointment for Marlon Devonish as he failed to make the 200m final. But Usian Bolt will go for the double as he cruised into the final last night.
There was more British success this morning as Michael Rimmer made the 800m semi finals and Steve Lewis qualified for the men's pole vault final.
