Jeter powers to 100M crown

Jeter won in 11.00 seconds, ahead of Schillonie Calvert of Jamaica (11.13) and Bulgarian Ivet Lalova (11.33).

Calvert, then, sprung the surprise of the evening when she set a personal best of 22.55 seconds to win the women’s 200M ahead of compatriot Sherone Simpson, who clocked in at 22.95.

World record holder Usain Bolt won the 100 metres dash in a personal season’s best time of 9.85.

Home favourite Blanka Vlasic had to settle for a runner-up finish in women’s high jump behind world champion Anna Chicherova of Russia, both clearing 2 metres but the latter needing fewer attempts.
