Overview by IAAF  
Thiesen-Eaton – the new wife of world decathlon record holder Ashton Eaton – led after the first event ahead of Melnychenko and Schippers. Melnychenko went into first place after the high jump, though the star of that event was Belgian Thiam who leapt 1.92 to rise from 28th to third. The Ukrainian led by 75 points ovenight with 3912. This was despite losing 102 points to Schippers in the 200m with 23.87 as compared to the Dutchwoman’s superb 22.84, which moved her into second spot. On day two, Rath climbed from seventh to fourth with her 6.67 long jump, while Melnychenko increased her lead to 120 points, jumping 6.49 ahead of Schippers 6.35. Theisen-Eaton’s javelin mark of 45.64 gained 73 points on Melnychenko, leaving the Canadian 68 behind but safely ahead of Schippers. Theisen-Eaton needed to beat Melnychenko by about five seconds in the 800m to take the gold, but the Ukrainian stayed within a second as both set personal bests to confirm their gold and silver. Further up the field in the same heat Rath won in 2:06.43 which would have got her bronze, had Schippers not slashed her best for the distance from 2:15.52 to 2:08.62. Absent was reigning Champion Tatyana Chernova, who in July 2013 had won the World Student Games with a world-leading score of 6623 before apparently suffering a knee injury while competing in the individual 100m hurdles at the Russian Championships.
