Uganda's middle-distance star Halimah Nakaayi settled for a respectable fifth position in a stellar cast of stars at the Eugene Diamond League finale on August 17 at the Hayward Field in Oregon.
Nakaayi posted 1:58.34 to finish in the lucrative money brackets.
The 800m finale produced the fastest race in the distance in the last five years, with the top four finishers setting new national records.
American star Athing Mu beat European champion Keely Hodgkinson as she ran the quickest 800m time in five years.
The world bronze medallist clocked 1:54.97, setting a new national record before the home crowd.
Hodgkinson settled for second place as she clocked 1:55.19, a new national record.
Jamaica's Natoya Goule-Toppin also set a national record of 1:55.96, and Kenya's Mary Moraa finished out off the podium as she clocked 1: 57.42.
For her efforts, Nakaayi will walk away with $2,500 (about Shs9.5m) in prize money.
