Bowie said: "The dive doesn't feel too good now. But that has saved me at championships in the past. I never give up until I'm over the line.
The biggest shock was that the double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson, could only finish in 5th place. She was a dead cert to win this race but the unpredictability is why we love sports. She said: “I have to give those three girls a lot of credit, so a big congratulations to them. I didn't execute my race, which is a shame but I'm healthy.
"I don't know what happened. I just wanted to get a good start but they raced well. I'll have to watch the video back because I don't know what went wrong
"My start was not great. The blocks were slightly down when I drove out. Maybe I was unfortunate. But I made it back into the race.
"I knew it was going to be tough. Everyone has been running well, so it was going to be difficult to get in the medals, so I'm happy to do it."
Ta Lou can hold her head up as she still did Africa proud. It was heartbreak for her compatriot Murielle Ahoure finished in fourth place and outside the medals. She said: "I am just happy to have this medal. It's a dream come true. I didn't expect to be in the top three because all the girls have the power and talent to make the podium. After every competition I get stronger, I thank God for the power he gives me."
In the Heptathlon, the Olympic Champion Nafissatou Thiam of Belgium became the World Champion as she won with 6784 points. Thiam’s father is from Senegal. She said: "It was a really difficult year, with a lot of pressure but I managed to produce a great performance.
"The thing with sport is, it doesn't always pay off when you work hard and you're never really sure if you're going to produce something great. I'm doing great things at the moment but I know hard times are going to come at some point, they do for everyone.
"But as long as it's going good I'm going to use my happiness as motivation."
