6th June 2021 • News

6th June 2021 – Trayvon Bromell (USA) lowered his 100m world leading time with a stunning performance at the NACAC New Life Invitational in Florida.

Already holding the world lead after this 9.88 clocking in Jacksonville at the end of April, Trayvon slashed over one tenth of this as he ran 9.77 seconds to claim his latest victory, set a new PB and move to seventh on the World All Time list.

At the FBK Games in Hengelo, Dina Asher-Smith (GBR) remained unbeaten in 2021 as she won the 100m setting a new meeting record of 10.92 seconds in the process.  There was also victory for Fred Kerley (USA) in the 400m with a time of 44.74 seconds and Matthew Hudson-Smith (GBR) sixth in the same race in 46.17 seconds.

Earlier in the week Sinclaire Johnson (USA) won the 800m at the Stumptown Twilight meeting in Portland.  A strong finish over the final 50m brought her through the line in 2:00.16.  Although not winning a race, there was an eye catching set of performances from Matthew Centrowitz (USA) as he ran back to back to back 800m races, clocking 1:50.33, 1:49.72 and 1:53.92 in the space of 20 minutes.
