Bowie sprinkles stardust on 100m final

America's Tori Bowie took the women's 100-meter title in dramatic fashion on Sunday, edging ahead of Marie-Josee Ta Lou at the very last moment to win her first individual global title at the World Athletics Championships in London. With her final strides, the American gritted her teeth for the line. Bowie, as well as her fellow medalists in this race, will now turn their attention to the 200-meters; Schippers is the defending champion in that event.

The favorite going into the final, Jamaica's two time Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson, finished third with a time of 10.98. Holland's Dafne Schippers took a surprise bronze, while Thompson was squeezed out of the medals altogether, finishing in 10.98, far outside her personal best.

Bowie joined her compatriot Justin Gatlin, who won the men's 100 on Saturday, as a surprise sprint victor.

Bowie looked stunned at her accomplishment, claiming that she was unaware she had won until she flung herself over the finish to prevail by one hundredth of a second.

"This is the greatest night of my life, '" Bowie said. "I'm so happy and I feel like the hard work has finally paid off". She beat Ta Lou by.01 seconds. It hasn't even sunk in yet. I just wanted to get a good start but they raced well. "All I knew is I left everything on the line".

Thompson was never a factor and finished fifth in 10.98 seconds.
