Jake Wightman's stunning 1500m win with a personal best was the highlight of the Oslo Daimond League for British athletes. Jake took close order coming up to the bell, and pulled away around the final bend holding off late-surging challengers to finish in 3:34.17. It's been a great season for Jake, who also ran an 800m PB a few days ago. He beat some good athletes - Manangoi, Lewandowski, Ingebrigtsen, Souleiman and Iguider included. Charlie Grice finished in 6th (3:37.78).

Matt Hudson-Smith ran a season's best time of 45.16s to take second place in the 400m, beating Maslak and two Borlee brothers along the way. More importantly it was a world championship qualifying time. Matt ran a strong 300 metres, but could not hang on for the win, just losing out to Botswana's Thebe. In the one lap hurdles, the home crowd gave the biggest cheer of the night as home favourite Karsten Warholm won with a national record 48.25s - third fastest in the world - beating Kerron Clament. Ireland's Thomas Barr came third in lane 1.

C J Ujah continues his good run of form with another seasons best 10.02s in the 100m. He finished second, just one hundredth of a second adrift from De Grasse. Gemili came third in 10.13s, while Reece Prescod had his first taste of Diamond League with 10.20s in 7th. In the women's 200m, Bianca Williams came 5th in 23.38s - the winner Schippers was controversially reinstated after a disqualification.

Shara Proctor was in third place in the penultimate round of the long jump, but had to settle for 4th with 6.53m. Lorraine Ugen was three centimetres behind in sixth, while Jazmin Sawyers struggled to get a distance, finishing 10th with 6.20m. Klishina and Bartoletta tussled for the win with Bartoletta's 6.79m holding off a final round 6.75m by Klishina. In the men's high jump, Robbie Grabarz struggling with a bruised ankle only managed third time clearances at 2.20m and 2.25m for 7th. Barshim broke the meeting record to win in a world leading 2.38m.

Tiffany Porter ran 12.93s for 5th place in the 100m hurdles while Lynsey Sharp ran a season's best 2:00.41 to better the world championship qualification time finishing 8th behind the unbeatable Semenya.
