Usain Bolt won the men’s 100m at the #IAAF World Challenge Meeting in Zagreb, Croatia. Bolt didn’t get the world lead (which still belongs to Asafa Powell) after he got a poor start and had to chase down Kim Collins before passing and pulling away to win in a Meeting Record of 9.85s. Kim Collins was second in 10.01s, Richard Thompson 3rd in 10.03s and Jamaica’s other participant Mario Forsythe 4th in 10.16s.
The American Carmelita Jeter continued her winning ways, when she won the women’s 100m event at the #IAAF World Challenge Meeting in Zagreb, Croatia. Jeter clocked 11.00s to finish ahead of Jamaica’s Schillonie Calvert (11.13s) and Bulgaria’s Ivet Lalova (11.33s).
Jamaica’s Schillonie Calvert destroyed the field in the women’s 200m a short while ago at the #IAAF World Challenge Meeting in Zagreb, Croatia.

She clocked a new PB OF 22.55s, to finish ahead of another Jamaican Sherone Simpson (22.95s) and the Bahamian Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie (22.97s).
Jamaica’s Novlene Williams-Mills continued her good end of season form when she won the women’s 400m at the #IAAF World Challenge Meeting in Zagreb, Croatia. Williams-Mills clocked 50.31s to finish ahead of the Russian Anastasiya Kapachinskaya (50.40s) and compatriot Shericka Williams (50.45s).
