GOLD NIEWIEDZIAL Barbara POL - PolandSI SILVER MELOCH Arleta POL -
Poland BRONZE BIACSI Ilona HUN - Hungary Barbara NIEWIEDZIAL (POL)
fulfilled her role as pre-event favourite for the F20 women's 1500m, by
surging away from her rivals at the bell, after a tactical and slow
first 1100m, to win in 4:35.26. Arleta MELOCH (POL) kept relatively
close contact with her until the last 150m before NIEWIEDZIAL then
changed gear and shook her off, with MELOCH getting the silver medal in
4:39.04 Ilona BIACSI (HUN), whose sister Bernadett came fourth, said "I
was hoping for a brighter medal today but I'm fine with the result.
Before the last lap there was a change of speed. My sister and I could
not keep up. It was too late at the end to catch the leaders." For
