The race took place in Mexico City, Mexico in Saturday, 03 May 2003, the home favorite Ana Guevara produced an emphatic victory in the women's 300 meters, in front of a near capacity paying crowd of over 50,000 exuberant spectators at the GP Banamex meeting in the 1968 Olympic stadium. Guevara's time of 35.30 was a world best for the run 300m distance, dramatically improving on the 35.46 time that Britain's Kathy Cook had set back in 1984. The Mexican 2003 World champion and 2002 IAAF World Cup 400m champion, who also shared in the Golden League Jackpot in 2002, was never troubled in the race and was already up on the starting stagger of the women in the four lanes inside her, as the half way point was reached in the race. Australia's Olympic 400m champion Cathy Freeman from Sydney 2000, who was one of those women inside Guevara (lane 4 to Guevara's lane 5) was never in the battle for the win, and struggled to take third place with 36.42, as Romania's Ionela Tirlea took the honours behind Guevara in 36.20 sec.
