Day Eleven of the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games: 18 Sports, 6 Disciplines running final events

Eighteen sports were held during Day Eleven of the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games, six of which included final matches. The end of Artistic Gymnastics was also celebrated with a Gala event.
The thousands of Athletics fans, gathered in the Athens Olympic Stadium, watched the six finals that took place in that popular sport. Ezekiel KEMBOI (KEN) out sprinted fellow countrymen Birmin KIPRUTO (KEN) and Paul Kipsiele KOECH (KEN) to take the 3000m steeplechase title in 8:05.81. World season leader and pre-race favourite Tonique WILLIAMS-DARLING (BAH) held off reigning world champion Ana GUEVARA (MEX) in the last home straight to win the women's 400m in a time of 49.41.
In Men's 1500m final, Hicham EL GUERROUJ (MAR) finally strikes Olympic gold after failing in Sydney four years ago, and falling in Atlanta in 1996. His winning time was 3:34.19. World record holder Roman SEBRLE (CZE) won the Olympic gold medal in Men’s Decathlon 1500m, and set an Olympic record of 8893 points.
Yelena ISINBAYEVA (RUS) won the Women's Pole Vault Olympic gold in spectacular fashion, claiming another world record with a massive jump of 4.91m.
In Beach Volleyball, Women’s Gold Medal Match showed WALSH and MAY (USA) as the winner of ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games beating BEHAR and SHELDA (BRA) 2 -0. Men’s final is to take place tomorrow.
The Men’s Points Race brought the athletes from Russia, Spain and Germany to the top of the Olympic event. In Men's Sprint Final, Ryan BAYLEY (AUS) has won his country's first Men's Sprint Olympic gold medal after defeating Theo BOS (NED) 2-1 in a titanic tussle. Lori-Ann MUENZER (CAN) has created Canadian Cycling history by winning the nation's first Olympic Cycling gold medal by defeating Tamilla ABASSOVA (RUS) in the Women's Sprint final tonight at the Olympic Velodrome.
Lifted by a capacity home town crowd, the Greek Women's Water Polo team blasted its way into the gold medal match of the Water Polo competition with a convincing 6-2 victory over current Olympic champions Australia at the Olympic Aquatic Centre. Greece will meet Italy on Thursday, 26 August at 18:15.
In Diving, in a very high-level competition, PENG (CHN) took the gold with 787.38 points, ahead of Canadian Alexandre DESPATIE, who had 755.97 points and Dmitri SAUTIN from Russia who finished third with 753.27 points.
In Weightlifting, Russia has won its seventh and most important Weightlifting medal so far, as 24-year-old Dmitry BERESTOV claimed gold in the Men's 105kg category at the Nikaia Olympic Weightlifting Hall.
