Jamaican Sprinters continue to show their dominance in Switzerland at the Spitzen Leichtathletik meet, which is presently taking place. The race finished just as quickly as it started with Yohan Blake separating himself decisively from the pack. He maintained form and speed to cross the finish line well ahead of the other runners.
The top four positions were secured by Caribbean sprinters; namely Yohan Blake, Michael Frater, Marc Burns and Lerone Clarke. Their times were 9.85, 10.00, 10.00 and 10.12 respectively.
Jamaican superstar sprinter Usain Bolt and long time sprint rival Asafa Powell did not compete in the meet as both are taking the time to recover from injuries and prepare for the London 2012 Olympic Games that will commence in the next two weeks.
Shermain Williams, Jamaican 110m hurdles sprinter also competed and placed 8th in the women’s event. She clocked 12.78 behind Ginnie Crawford of the United States who won that event.
