Tori Bowie of the United States in the new women's World 100m champion.
The women's 100m final produced one of the most surprising results on day 3 at the World Athletics championships. Elaine Thompson of Jamaica, the gold medal favorite, did not make the podium while Tori Bowie turned Rio Olympics silver medal to World championships gold.
Bowie with an extraordinary lean pulled out a victory by 0.01 seconds from Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Cote d'Ivoire, 10.85 to 10.86.
Dafne Schippers of Netherlands running from lane 9 took bronze in 10.96, with Murielle Ahoure of the Cote d'Ivoire fourth in 10.98. Jamaica's Thompson came in 5th clocking the same time as Ahoure.
