Campbell-Brown defended her gold medal from the Athens Games, winning the race with a personal-best run of 21.74 seconds. American sprinter Allyson Felix, the silver medalist in Athens, was second to Campbell-Brown once again, finishing in 21.93 seconds.

Jamaica also won the bronze medal as Kerron Stewart posted a time of 22- seconds flat, crossing the finish line just .01 seconds ahead of Muna Lee of the U.S. Stewart also took the silver medal in the 100 at these Games.
