Zohri triumphed in a national junior record of 10.18 seconds to stun the pre-race 100m favourites from United States.

Anthony Schwartz took silver in 10.22 while Eric Harrison took bronze in the same time - which was also a personal best. 

Nozomi Tanaka took on of the two Japanese successes when winning the women's 3,000m in a personal best 8min 54.01sec.

Meselu Berhe and Tsige Gebreselama also each ran personal best times of 8:56.39 and 8:59.20 respectively but had to be content with silver and bronze for Ethiopia.

Yuki Hashioka then won the second in the women's long jump with a leap of 8.03m.
