STORY SCRIPT:

The final day of the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires athletics took place in glorious sunshine on Tuesday (16th October).

Ricuo Xi of China took the gold medal in the women’s 5000 metre race walk with a combined time of 45:03.49.

Sofia Elizabeth Ramos Rodriguez of Mexico took the silver medal with a combined time of 45:58.97 while the bronze went to Olga Fiaska of Greece for her time of 46:10.02.

The same three – in the same order – had led the standings after stage one of the competition.

The women’s 400 metres hurdles was the first track race final of the day.

Cabezas Caracas of Colombia built on her potential from the stage one races to storm to victory in a time of 58.39 seconds to take the gold medal.

Silver went to Loubna Benhadja of Algeria with a time of 59.70 seconds, while Canadian athlete Julia Lovesin took the bronze in 59.89 seconds – both new personal bests.

But there was frustration and heartbreak for Brazilian Jessica Vitoria de Oliveira Moreira who had raced a personal best of 59.41 seconds in the stage one race, but fell towards the end of the stage two race when she was still in medal contention.

16 year old Elina Tzengko of Greece won the Women’s 500g javelin throw gold medal.
