Aldama misses out on medal
Britain's world indoor champion Yamile Aldama had to settle for fifth place in the women's triple jump final on Sunday evening.
The 39-year-old, dubbed a 'plastic Brit' in some quarters as she has previously represented both Cuba and Sudan, produced a best of 14.48m in the final round.
The gold medal went to Olga Rypakova of Kazakhstan courtesy of a season's best of 14.98m.
Rypakova took the lead in the third round and was never headed, with Colombia's Catherine Ibarguen claiming silver by just one centimetre with a leap of 14.80m in the final round.
Ukraine's Olha Saladuha (14.79m) took bronze.
Kenyan Ezekiel Kemboi won the men's 3000m steeplechase in a time of 8:18.56.
Kemboi, who also won gold at the Athens Games in 2004, finished ahead of France's Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, who clocked 8:19.08 for silver, with another Kenyan, Abel Kiprop Mutai securing the bronze (8:19.73).
Defending champion Brimin Kipruto was tripped with just 700m remaining and sent crashing to the track.
The Kenyan jumped straight back up and sprinted to get back into the pack, but the damage was done and he finished fifth.
