Netherlands Martina Churandy took the men's 100m crown, while European leader Jimmy Vicaut finished in third at European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam on Thursday.

Martina Churandy  was a surprise winner in front of  his home crowd in the men's 100m final clocking season's best of 10.07 seconds. Pre race favourite Jimmy Vicaut of France, who last month clocked 9.86 seconds to equal European record, took bronze as he was edged by Turkish sprinter Jak Ali Harvey on the line.

Former world indoor 60m champion Richard Kilty of Great Britain was disqualified for false starting.

In the women's 200m final Dina Asher-Smith clocked 22.37 seconds becoming the first  British woman to win the European 200m gold. Bulgaria's Ivet Lalova posted 22.57 to win silver with Germany's Gina Heckenkemper in third in 22.74 seconds.

World silver medalist Cindy Rohleder of Germany prevailed in the women's 100m hurdles final setting a new European lead of 12.67 into -0.7 m/s strong headwind. 2012 European Champion and last year's World championships bronze medalist Alina Talay of Belarus crossed the line second in 12.68, while defending champion  Great Britain's Tiffany Porter concluded the podium with a time of 12.76 seconds.
