Overview by IAAF   Paris Saint Denis stadium 
Four of the Edmonton finalists reached that stage again, though not Marion Jones who had just given birth. The defending champion, now known as Zhanna Block, was not quite at her best because of a back injury. White had emerged as the favourite after recent wins in London (10.93) and Berlin (10.84w). In the final it was another American, Edwards, who was quickest away from lane 1. She led for the first half of the race before White powered through to win in 10.85, while Block also finished strongly for the bronze. Six days later, and after also claiming the gold at 200m, it was confirmed that White had tested positive in Paris for the stimulant monadifil, which, though not on the list of banned drugs, was regarded by the IAAF as “related” to an illegal substance. White claimed she had taken the drug provigil (containing monadifil) because she had been diagnosed as suffering from narcolepsy, a rare condition characterised by sudden episodes of deep sleep.
 However, she had not declared the drug on doping control forms. Pending hearings by the IAAF and the United States Anti-Doping Agency, White was allowed to compete in postParis meetings and placed third in the yearly world athlete standings after Hestrie Cloete and Carolina Klüft. In May 2004, White admitted having taken anabolic steroids and erythropoietin (EPO) over a three-year period. She was suspended for two years and all her results from December 15, 2000 – including those from Edmonton and Paris – were annulled. After nine months, Edwards was declared the rightful World Champion. The list of doping offenders continued in 2012 when Block was found guilty of “Taking advantage of, use or attempted use of a prohibited substance or a prohibited technique.” Like Jones, she was identified as a customer of the Californian Bay Area Laboratory CoOperative (Balco). As well as a two-year suspension, all of Ukrainian’s results from November 30, 2001 were annulled. So she kept her Edmonton gold but lost her Paris medal.
 These are the official results of the Women's 100 metres event at the 2003 IAAF World Championships in Paris, France. There were a total number of 59 participating athletes, with eight qualifying heats, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final held on Sunday 24 August 2003 at 19:45h.

Women 100m Final

Kelli WHITE delivered what she has been promising for much of the summer and won the women's 100m gold medal on Sunday evening in a world leading time, 10.85, while her American teammate Torri EDWARDS produced a personal best 10.93 for silver, six hundredths ahead of the defending champion Zhanna BLOCK (UKR), who ran her best race of the year when it mattered most, clocking 10.99.
 
These three were the only athletes to break 11 seconds and the French dream of a medal for Christine ARRON evaporated as she finished sixth in 11.06. Chandra STURRUP, the fastest woman in the world this year before tonight, was fourth in 11.02, with Greece's Ekaterini THANOU running a season's best 11.03 for fifth.
 
White succeeded the Olympic champion Marion Jones to win the US title back in June, beating Edwards into second on that occasion too. But it was Edwards, who got the best start here, flying out of the blocks in lane one, to establish an early advantage. White, in lane five, also started well, as did Block and Sturrup, and by 70m the American champion had edged ahead.
 
Edwards held her form, and held off the challenge of Block in lane two beside her. But White was clear, and crossed the line with her arms raised in victory. Thanou, after a poor start in lane four, made up ground in the closing stages but not enough to catch Sturrup, who held on to fourth.
 
Arron was almost caught by Jamaica's Aleen BAILEY whose 11.07 was one hundredth inside her personal best. Despite her fastest race of the year, former Olympic champion Gail DEVERS finished last, in 11.11.

Women 100m Semi-finals

US champion Kelli White stamped her authority on the women's 100m in the semi-finals this evening, recording the only sub-11 time of the round and looking a strong favourite to claim gold in the final at 19:45.
 
White, running in heat one, had to contend with the loud home crowd support for France's former European champion Christine Arron, not to mention the close attention of reigning world champion Zhanna Block (UKR). At the gun, all the main contenders were away cleanly and White, Block, Arron and Marina Kislova (RUS) were together at half way, with Jamaica's Aileen Bailey and the veteran Merlene Ottey (SLO) giving chase.

Kislova began to fall back as Bailey came up in lane three. But it was White who had the strongest finish, moving ahead in the last 10 metres to clock 10.96, while Arron pipped Block for second by one hundredth, 11.01 to 11.02, season?s bests for both. Bailey came through for the fourth qualifying spot in 11.15, while Kislova was unlucky to miss out on the final, recording exactly the same time as the Jamaican.
 
The first three in that heat were all quicker than world leader Chandra Sturrup of the Bahamas, who took heat two in 11.06, ahead of a season?s best of 11.08 from Greece?s Olympic silver medallist Ekaterini Thanou. The US ensured it will have three in the final as World Indoor bronze medallist Torri Edwards and former Olympic champion Gail Devers took the final two places. Devers' 11.12 was a season's best, a hundredth behind her team-mate.
 
The Commonwealth champion Debbie Ferguson (BAH) misses out, as does Ottey, marking, perhaps, the end of a long and supremely distinguished World Championships career for the former Jamaican.

Women 100m Quarter Final

The women's quarter finals of the 100m went to script this evening with some solid performances from the world's leading female sprinters.

Kelli WHITE (USA) and Chandra STURRUP (BAH) continued their intriguing battle on the track.  Although in different heats, White came up trumps, clocking the fastest qualifying time of 10.96s after a flying start from the blocks. Sturrup shaved 0.10s off her heat time to record 10.98s in a nil wind, which should make for an interesting contest in later rounds.

The finish in heat two left the French fans on the edge of their seat as Christine ARRON (FRA) tool control of her race early.  Zhanna BLOCK (UKR) challenged from lane four and pipped the French woman at the finish line.  Both women clocked 11.08s, a season best for Block after returning from injury.

The USA's Torri EDWARDS continued her impressive recent form and controlled heat four the entire race, running in lane five, clocking 11.08s, despite easing up towards the line.

Other solid performances to advance to the semi finals included the USA's Gail DEVERS (11.16s) and Greece's Olympic silver medallist, Ekaterini THANOU (11.11s), whilst sentimental favourite Merlene OTTEY (SLO) will need to improve if she is to make the final after running a sluggish 11.31s.

Great Britain's Joice MADUAKA ran a season best of 11.29s, to qualify for the next round tomorrow.
