The two day event of IAAF/VTB Bank World Athletics Final (13-14th Sep), held at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Stuttgart, Germany saw a total some 40,000 spectators.

This is an event which is one of the last few competition of the year before athletes go into off-season.

There is still the Shanghai Grand Prix on 20th September left on the calendar

The World Athletics Final at Stuttgart saw a juggernaut of a 400 metres clash.

Billed as the re-match of the Olympic Beijing Final, which was between Olympic champion Christine Ohuruogu of Great Britain and bronze medalist Sanya Richards from the USA

The last time round at Beijing, Ohuruogu got the better of Richards, but this time round Richards cruised to her fourth world title in a time of 50.41 seconds.

Ohuruogu had to settle for second in a time of 50.83 seconds.

Both clocked excellent timing considering the average temperature there was around 12°C
