Runners scored another 1-2 finish in the women's 400, but this time the hosts Shandong performed the honors. Home favorite Huang Xiaoxiao starred in the eye-catching event.

The defending champion didn't disappoint her home crowd and took a gold medal with 52.23 seconds. Huang's teammate Chen Lin took the silver with 52.96. Chen Jingwen from Goangdong won the bronze with 53.10.

Huang Xiaoxiao was suffering from a left leg injury, but she said the leg fully recovered just a week ago. So it was not easy for her to win the race and claim the gold medal.
