Teammates from Jiangsu would battle for the women's 200 meter crown. Chen Jue competed against Jiang Lan in the flat-out sprint to the line.

Jiang Lan led the first 100 meters, but Chen Jue sped up in the final 60 to pass Jiang Lan, finishing first in 23.45 seconds. Jiang Lan placed second with a time of 23.48, and Wang Yingju of Fujian finished third with 23.79.

So a one-two finish in the women's 200 meter final added two total medals for Jiangsu, and one more gold -- thanks to Chen Jue.
