Jade Johnson (HHH) excels to win Silver medal in Long Jump.
Jade was the leading qualifier - she was the only competitor to achieve the qualifying distance of 6.60m - with her first attempt of 6.60m (-0.5). In the final she faced local favourite and former world-record holder Heike Drechsler and the 2002 leading European with a season's best of 7.42m Tatyana Kotova of Russia. Jade's series of (6.66/-0.5; 6.72/+1.2; x; 6.52/-1.1; 6.73/+1.1; 6.58/0.0) gave her a PB of 6.73 (previously 6.69) and second place behind Kotova and marginally ahead of Tunde Vaszi of Hungary who also cleared 6.73 in the fifth round but whose next best jump was 6.57.

Natasha Danvers (Shaftesbury Barnet) finishes 7th in 400 Metres Hurdles Final.
Natasha qualified for the final as the second fastest of those who did not qualify by finishing in the first two places in the three heats by finishing fourth (56.55) in the first heat which was won by the eventual champion Ionela Tirlea of Romania. In the final Natasha was drawn in lane 8 - a time close to her season's best of 55.68 would have seen her medal but she was unable to reproduce that form and clocked 56.93.

Shelley Newman (Belgrave Harriers) finishes 10th in Discus Final.
In the qualifying round Shelley's series of (55.49, x, 56.57) placed her 11th amongst the 12 qualifiers. In the final she moved up one place with a series of (55.03, 57.38, 55.69).
