2Zurich Diamond League RESULTS - 8th Sept 2011 Empty Yoahan Blake runs PB in Zurich Fri Sep 09, 2011 1:44 pm



World 100m champion Yohan Blake runs personal best in Zurich By Associated Press

September 8, 2011

ZURICH (AP) - Showing the swagger that comes from being world champion, Yohan Blake ran a personal best time of 9.82 seconds to win the 100 meters at the Weltklasse meeting on Thursday.

The 21-year-old Jamaican stumbled slightly out of the blocks and had no wind assistance on a still night, yet ran .07 seconds faster than ever before. His time left him ranked seventh on the alltime list.

"I knew I had this in me. I wanted to show people I can do it and run under pressure," said Blake, who seized the world title last week in Daegu, South Korea after his training partner Usain Bolt was disqualified for a false start.

"I feel fast. I feel like I can lift up a mountain but being a champion that is how you feel," Blake said.

Another young world champion to shine in a star-studded Diamond League lineup was Kirani James in the 400.

The 19-year-old from Grenada ran a personal best of 44.36 to repeat his Daegu victory over Olympic champion LaShawn Merritt of the United States.

Other world champions to win included Sally Pearson of Australia in the 100 hurdles, Mariya Savinova of Russia in the 800 and Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya in the women's 5,000.

Yelena Isinbayeva was beaten again in the pole vault, finishing third after a single clearance at 4.62 meters, as American Jennifer Suhr won at 4.72.

Yet it was Blake in center stage just 10 days after he was almost unknown to all but athletics aficionados. He had won the gold medal in 9.92 into a headwind to set his previous season-best time.

Blake's dash in his first individual race since was the fourth fastest legal time this year, just .04 behind Asafa Powell's 9.78 performance at the Lausanne Diamond League meet in June.

Powell finished second in 9.95 Thursday, though nursing a hip injury that caused him to miss the world championships.

"I didn't want to try to push and injure myself," said Powell, who led at the halfway stage but stood up straighter in the closing strides as he looked left at Blake's winning surge. "It was a good race for (Blake). He had a good start."

In fact, Blake's reaction time was faster than only two others, including world silver medalist Walter Dix of the United States.

"I think that I stumbled in the first 10 meters. I quickly made it up and I came through victorious," said Blake, who will run his final scheduled 100 of the season at Berlin on Sunday.

Dix placed third in 10.04 and worlds bronze medalist Kim Collins of Saint Kitts and Nevis was fifth in 10.09.

In the 400, James lowered his previous lifetime best from the Daegu final by 0.24, and was just .01 outside Merritt's world-leading time.

"I executed the race perfectly," said James, dismissing talk of a sub-44 run soon. "I will be happy to run at least 44.35 next year."

Merritt lost his world title by .03 last week but trailed by 0.31 this time.

Dayron Robles proved a point in the 110 hurdles after his disqualification at the worlds.

The Cuban world record holder ran his season-best time of 13.01, as gold medalist Jason Richardson of the U.S. trailed by .09 in second.

"Great satisfaction for me after Daegu," Robles acknowledged.

Carmelita Jeter again beat American teammate Allyson Felix in the 200, winning in 22.27. World champion Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica was one of the few gold medalists to miss the Weltklasse.

In a thrilling finish to the women's 800, Savinova outlasted Alysia Montano of the U.S. to cross in 1 minute 58.27 seconds. Caster Semenya of South Africa was fifth.

Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya, who swept the worlds 5,000 and 10,000, ran 25 seconds faster than her Daegu time winning the 5,000 in 14:30.10 seconds.

World champion Ezekiel Kemboi won the 3,000-meter steeplchase in 8:07.72, and Kenya also took the men's 1,500. However, gold medalist Asbel Kiprop was seventh as Nixon Chepseba won in 3:32.74.

Jamaica's Kaliese Spencer reversed her 400 hurdles form after being fourth in Daegu. Spencer clocked 53.36 to edge silver medalist Melaine Walker into second, with world champion Lashinda Demus of the U.S. in third.

Ngonidzashe Makusha of Zimbabwe, the worlds bronze medalist, won the men's long jump with an opening leap of 8.00 meters. Four-time world champion Dwight Phillips of the U.S. was fourth, at 7.87.

Dimitrios Chondrokoukis of Greece had a lifetime best leap of 2.32 meters to win the high jump, and two-time world champion Robert Harting of Germany won the discus. Christina Obergfoell of Germany won the javelin at 69.57.

The Weltklasse meeting started Wednesday evening in the entrance hall at Zurich's main train station where the shot put events were staged, won by women's world champion Valerie Adams of New Zealand and Canada's worlds silver medalist Dylan Armstrong.

The Diamond League season ends Sept. 16 with the second half of the finals program at the Van Damme Memorial meet in Brussels.



Men's 100m won by Yohan Blake in 9.82, after running down Asafa Powell in the last 20m.

Kirani James wins the 400m in 44.36 in comvincing fashion from LaShawn Merritt.

Jamaica win the men's 4 x 100m relay in 38.31, after a brilliant come from behind effort on the final leg by Michael Frater.

Sally Pearson wins the 100m Hurdles by 3m - to secure the Diamond League title for 2011.
