Powell got the best start and led the race halfway through, but Gay caught up and ran past Powell with some 30 meters left, being able to hold up his top speed longer. Powell seemed to get tense in the end and admitted to giving up when he realised he was out of contention[1], as even Atkins ran past him in the last moments of the race.

Zersenay Tadese set a fast pace for most of the race (because he knew he could not outsprint Bekele, according to SBS commentators), gradually reducing the pack to 4. Mathathi took the lead with two laps to go, and Tadese fell back to finish fourth. The two Ethiopians went past Mathathi at the bell, with Bekele sprinting away in the last 100m to win his third consecutive title.

Kenyan William Kiplagat, who had held a medal position for much of the race, faded badly to finish 8th, in a race where 57 out of 94 starters finished. Swiss Röthlin ran a well-paced race to take a surprise medal. Eritrean Yared Asmerom, along with three Japanese athletes, were unlucky to finish without medals, despite well-timed surges. Japan won the World Cup race, with Korea and Kenya also picking up medals in the team event.

Ostapchuk lead throughout the rounds but Vili responded in the final round with a 20.54 throw. Ostapchuk's last round effort of 20.48 was not enough to catch the New Zealander, who set a Commonwealth record.

Klüft set a European Record and became the second highest scorer ever in taking her third consecutive World Championship title and 19th consecutive heptathlon win. Sotherton had to fight with Jessica Ennis for a medal in the 800 m, after a poor javelin. Ennis won the 800 meters by only 0.19 seconds which was not enough, giving her the fourth place after Sotherton.
