15 May Wins for Reece Prescod and Brianna Rollins in Shanghai Diamond League
There were more great results for Stellar Athletes in the Diamond League athletics meeting in Shanghai.
Reece Prescod pulled off the most impressive win in the 100m with victory over Justin Gatlin, Andre De Grasse and home favourites Su Bingtian and Xie Zhenye.
Reece stormed through the race from the outside lane in wet conditions with a strong finish to dip ahead of the world class field with a time of 10.04 – just 0.01 off the personal best he set when competing at the IAAF World Championship In London last summer.
Brianna Rollins on her second international competition since taking gold at the Olympic Games Rio 2016, and with an American sweep for the three spots in the women’s 100-meter hurdles. Brianna was able to take victory over a very tight race between herself and Sharika Nelvis who was right behind with a time of 12.52 seconds winning time for Brianna 12.50. Even the wet conditions did not deter a splendid race between the Americans.
Elsewhere in the meeting Brandon Mcbride took fifth place in the 800m and Levern Spencer just missed out on a medal, coming fourth in the high jump.
