* Good run by Fionnuala Britton, but second heat proved the faster and pulled in four of the five fastest losers. In the 200m, Paul Hession in lane 6 had to chase down Yohan Blake (Jam), who was suspended for three months in 2009 after testing positive for a stimulant.

* Last day for the Irish sailors with Ger Owens and Scott Flanigan in the 470 class moving up to 23rd overall after an outstanding 5th place in their final race.
* Great start by Derval O'Rourke in second semi-final of the 100m hurdles but faded to finish 5th in 12.91 behind eventual champion Sally Pearson (Aus).
