Amos became the first sub 1:42 800m runner to hold a 400m personal best inside 45 seconds. Emmanuele Bamidele of Nigeria clocked the fastest time in the 400m from heat 1 with a new meet record of 44.78 seconds. Nijel Amos clocked the second fastest time overall while Trinidad and Tobago's Michael Cedenio from heat 1 and Jamaica's Nathon Allen from heat 2 clocked 45,57 seconds to share the 3rd place.

Jamaica’s Megan Tapper set a new meet record and a season-best to win the 100m hurdles in 12.66s to win the event ahead of Tiffany McReynolds of the USA was crossed over in 12.72 and Pedrya Seymour of the Bahamas who clocked 12.78 for third.

Lamont Marcell Jacobs of Italy took a surprise victory in the men's 100m dash. The 24-year-old Italian won the heat 2 in a new PB and meeting record of 11.04 seconds.

Kenya's Eunice Sum, the 2013 World Champion, took the women's 800m in a season's best time of 2:00.99.
