Gothenburg, Sweden - With a dominating performance in the 200 metres, Francis Obikwelu completed his double dash win to highlight a wet and chilly day four of the European Athletics Championships.

Already the clear leader midway through the bend, the 27-year-old Portuguese powered through the homestretch en route to a 20.01 national record to complete the first sprint double victory at these championships since Italy’s Pietro Mennea two wins in 1978.
