Christine Ohuruogu wins the women’s 400m final at the World Championships in Moscow.
In an epic showdown, Great Britain’s Christine Ohuruogu stormed to the ginishe line to take back her 400m World Championship title.
The 29-year-old East Londoner, took on the defending champion Amantle Montsho in an a showdown that found the two watching the results board to see who had won the gold medal for their countries. Ohuruogu had a great start but the race, but the first 200m didn’t look promising. The strong athlete in her came out its shell on the home straight and her dip on the line had us on the edge of our seats to see if she had stolen back her shine.
After a wait to see if she’d be adding another silver medal after loosing out to USA’s Sanya Richards-Ross at the 2012 Olympics, Ohuruogu found that all her hard work had won her back her golden glory, six years after her last triumph at the world championships.
In a humbling response to her win, Christine said to BBC Sport:
I feel like I’m in a dream, I’m just so grateful!
Congratulations to Christine on her World Championship win and taking the National Record at 49.41, you’ve made Great Britain very proud once again!
