The much-awaited re-match of the men's 100m final on Sunday ended up with a dramatic repeat of Saturday's results and the swimming pool saw some world-class swimmers excel at the World University Games.

Sunday, the Mother's Day in Thailand, is marked by the re-run of the men's 100m final in heavy rain and produced the winner, Simeon Williamson from Britain in 10.22 seconds as silver and bronze went to Chinese Zhang Peimeng in 10.30 and Canadian Neville Wright in 10.37, who were the same podium finishers as yesterday.

China, together with Canada and Kazakhstan, protested the result of men's 100m final yesterday, arguing for an obvious false start of the then champion. The Athletics Technique Committee of FISU later overruled the previous result and called for the re-run this afternoon.

In the swimming pool, Olympic medalists shone as the Athens Olympic 200m and 400m winners Yana Klochkova of Ukraine eased to the women's 400m individual medley in 4:37.50.

Italy's Federica Pellegrini, runner-up in Athens three years ago, took the women's 200m freestyle in a time of 1:47.67, adding one more gold to her 200m free title and the 800m free silver.

Tseng Yi-hsuan, runner-up of this year's World Taekwondo Championships, dominated women's 55kg category by defeating U.S. opponent Jesika Torres in the day's taekwondo competition marred by bottle-throwing and controversial judgments.

An Iranian taekwondo player was persuaded to leave the stands as he threw a bottle onto the court, protesting the judgment for the quarterfinal match between his compatriot Abbas Sheikhi and host player Dech Sutthikunkarn.

China put four gold medals in its pocket in gymnastics, fencing and shooting.

Former world beam champion Fan Ye proved her prowess in this event by winning in 15.15 points before her teammate Zhou Zhuoru, reigning Universiade all-round champion. Guo Weiyang shared the parallel bars title with Japanese Kazuya Ueda in 15.925 points.

China had a one-two finish in men's individual foil as Wu Hanxiong and Bao Xiaoqing took gold and silver respectively.

Wang Qinqin won the women's 50m rifle three positions in shooting.
