An 800-meter evening run played a decisive role. Sułek did her best again and took second place. Vidts confirmed that she was the best on that day, but right behind her was the Pole with a time of 2.09.56. With 4851 points, she broke the Polish record that Urszula Włodarczyk had held for 24 years. She improved it by 43 points. Sułek leapfrogged an older compatriot who won the bronze medal at the 1999 Maebashi in Japan.
