ESTRADA RUNNING TO VICTORY AND CROSSING THE LINE FIRST STORY: Jamaican Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson led 100 metres qualifying as she celebrated her nation's Independence Day on Tuesday (August 6).

Thompson, the Rio Games double gold medallist, cruised home in 11.36 seconds, well off her season's best of 10.73, but enough to shade Brazil's South American champion Vitoria Cristina Rosa (11.40) in their semi-final.

Rodrigo do Nascimento clocked 10.27 seconds to beat U.S. favourite Mike Rodgers by two-hundredths of a second, and Paulo Andre de Oliveira equalled Rodgers' time of 10.29 to win his race in the men's 100 metres semi-final heats.

Natasha Wodak sparked a gold-bronze finish by Canada in the women's 10,000m.

Wodak won in a speedy 31 minutes 55.17 seconds, nearly four seconds ahead of Mexico's Risper Gesabwa.

Rachel Cliff took third for Canada in 32:13.34.

All three runners were under the Games record of 32:41.33 set by Mexico's Brenda Flores in Toronto in 2015.

Mexican Fernando Daniel Martinez Estrada won the men's 5,000 in 13:53.87.

There was some bad news for the Games, however, when Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas withdrew.
