Dalmation's Daniel - 33.96s
Marco - 36.69s

After School's Kahi
NS Yoon G
Girl's Day MinAh

50m Dash:

Seemingly a repeat of the hurdles race, with Bomi, Bora and Ga Eun in the final, together with Eunji who won the 100m outdoor race at the last meet. Another thrilling race which was won by Ga Eun as she simply powered her way from the start to finish to win the gold medal.

Dal Shabet's Ga Eun
Nine Muses' Eunji

- 50m Hurdles:

A thrilling race from start to finish as Bomi flew out of the starting blocks and never looked back. Bora who won at the previous meet and Ga Eun tried their best to catch up but failed to do so.

A Pink's Bomi - 9.82s
SISTAR's Bora - 9.92s
Dal Shabet's Ga Eun - 10.12s

200m Walking Relay Race:

A perfect walk at the track for the SISTAR girls who led from the start and never looked back. Their 2nd consecutive gold medal win for the event.

SISTAR (Bora, Hyorin, Dasom, Soyu)
Davichi (Minkyung, Haeri), T-ara (Hyomin, Qri)
G.NA, 4minute (Sohyun, Jihyun, Jiyoon)

400m Relay:

SISTAR continued their dominance by picking up their 4th consecutive gold medal. Unlike the last meet which was too close to call, SISTAR led from the start and cruised to the finish this time.

SISTAR (Hyorin, Dasom, Soyu, Bora)
Nine Muses, Jewelry (Eunji, Ye Won, Kyung Lee, Lee Saem)
After School (UEE, Lizzy, Jooyeon, Kahi)

50m Swim:

It looked to be another neck-to-neck final race after first-time participant, Minha had pipped the defending champion, Woori in the qualifying round. And it proved to be indeed a thrilling final race as Minha led Woori before the latter managed to catch up and it was simply too close to call. In the end, Woori just about managed to hold off the competition to win her 2nd consecutive gold medal at the swim event. Minha surprisingly ended up 3rd as she did not touch the panel at the end hard enough to register her timing. Despite flying off the blocks the latest, Rania's T-ae came in second.

Rainbow's Woori - 44.41s
Rania's T-ae - 46.98s
Nine Muses' Minha - 47.70s
