Stars shine! - Jeter, Sinclair, Walker cop world-leading times at JII

BY DANIA BOGLE Observer staff reporter
Jamaican Observer
Sunday, May 08, 2011

WORLD-leading times by Olympic champion Melaine Walker, Carmelita Jeter and Kenia Sinclair helped yesterday’s JN/Jamaica International Invitational live up to its billing in its first year as an IAAF World Challenge Meet at the National Stadium last night.

Jeter of the USA retained the title she won last year after posting a meet record and world-leading 10.86 seconds to win the women’s 100m, bettering the 10.94 she set last year.

It was Jeter’s second world-leading time within a month after clocking 10.99 in California on April 16.

“At the beginning of training I didn’t know what my coach was doing and I looked at him like, ‘why am I doing this?’ but he said ‘just trust me’ and I did,” she said after yesterday’ race.

Trinidad’s Kelly Ann Baptiste, who advanced like a rocket in the final 10 metres, finished a close second in 10.94, while Jamaica’s Sherone Simpson was third in 11.07.

Kerron Stewart posted a similar time for fourth and after coming back from injury and surgery was happy with her performance.

“This is my first one and I never run this fast in my first open... so I’m pleased,” she said.

National champion Kenia Sinclair kept her unbeaten streak at the meet, pounding away in the final 200 to race to a world-best and meet record 1:58.41 to win the womens’ 800m for the fourth time.

Phoebe Wright was 20 metres behind in 1:59.98, while her countrywoman Molly Beckwith was third in 2:00.08.

World and Olympic champion Melaine Walker led from the 200m mark but was pushed on the curve by the American Nicole Leach before pressing ahead in the straight to take the womens’ 400m hurdles in a worldleading 55.60 seconds.

Despite the world best, Walker said she would have wanted to run low 55, but was still ready for what the rest of the season had to offer.

“I came out today to feel my rhythm back. I’m not that far off. All I need to do is get back in training because I haven’t hurdled since because I had a slight injury. Once I can get that right, I’ll be back,” she said.

Leach posted 56.08 to finish ahead of Daniele Gilchrist of the USA in 57.67.

Meanwhile, Yohan Blake posted a wind-aided 9.80 seconds (+2.2ms) to win the men’s 100m ahead of his training partner Daniel Bailey of Antigua, 9.94, and Mike Rodgers of the USA, 9.96.

World and Olympic relay gold medallist Michael Frater was fourth in 9.98, while national champion Oshane Bailey finished sixth in 10.12 seconds.

Olympic silver medallist Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago posted 10.16 for seventh.

World champion Kerron Clement was upstaged in the men’s 400m hurdles despite leading for the most of the race as US counterpart Justin Gaymon beat him five metres from the line to win in 48.58 seconds to Clement’s 48.74. Jamaica’s Danny McFarlane posted 49.04 for third.

Gaymon was happy with stopping the world and American champ and said it was a big confidence-booster for the remainder of the season.

“I feel like the underdog and I feel like... I’m getting better with time, so hopefully, I’ll keep progressing.”

McFarlane said he said he still had to work on his technique but was feeling good after his first big race of the season.

“I think that I’m really back... give me two more and you’re going to see me real, really back.”

Clement was not too perturbed at being beaten: “I felt good. I just need to work my last half. Otherwise I felt strong,” he told the Sunday Observer.

The USA’s Khadevis Robinson won the men’s 800m in 1:46.25, followed by Duane Solomon of Jamaica, 1:46.37, and Karjuan Williams of the USA, 1:47.26.

South African Pete Van der WestHuizen improved on his silver from last year’s meet, clocking 3:45.19 to win the men’s 1500m ahead of Derek Scott of the USA, 3:45.24, and Rob Myers, 3:45.32.

Jacques Harvey clocked 10.04 to win the JAAA men’s development 100m ahead of Remaldo Rose in a personal best 10.20 and Kimmari Roach, 10.30.

Warren Weir of Racer’s Track Club clocked 47.28 seconds to win the men’s development 400m ahead of national representative Tarik Edwards in 47.44 and Trumaine Fitten, 47.69.

Wolmer’s Boys’ looked on the verge of repeating their record-breaking run from last weekend’s Penn Relays in the high school boys 4x100m relay and were well in the lead with 50m remaining in the final leg before Chaddick Hinds of St Elizabeth Technical put on a blistering display to pip them on the line in a meet record 39.99 seconds, lowering the 40.27 set by Camperdown last year.

Wolmer’s were second in 40.04 and Jamaica College third in 40.32.

Herbert Morrison claimed the first event of the evening, the high school girls’ 4x100m relay in 45.20 ahead of Holmwood, 45.42, and Vere Technical, 45.47.

Strangely no mention of the massive sub 20s PB by young Nickel Ashmeade in the 200m?

Fraser-Pryce wins 200m at JA Int. Invitational

RJR News
8th May 2011

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, world and Olympic 100 metres champion, ran a blistering leg to win the 200 metres at the 8th staging of the Jamaica National Jamaica International Invitational meet at the National Stadium Saturday night.

Fraser-Pryce beat the field which included Veronica Campbell Brown who clocked 22.37 seconds for second and Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie in third in 22.78 seconds.

Nickel Ashmeade won the men’s equivalent in 19.95 seconds followed by Steve Mullings in 20.15 seconds and American Wallace Spearmon in 20.18 seconds.

Nesta Carter was fourth in 20.25 seconds while Asafa Powell, former 100 metres world record holder, was eight in 20.40 seconds.

Novlene Williams-Mills won the women’s 400 metres while Chris Brown of the Bahamas won the men’s equivalent ahead of Germaine Gonzales.

Earlier, young rising sprinter Yohan Blake won the men’s 100 metres in 9.80 seconds while American Carmelita Jeter won the women’s equivalent ahead of Kelly Ann Baptiste of Trinidad and Tobago in second and Kerron Stewart in third.

Aleen Bailey, Sherone Simpson and Carrie Russell were also in the race.



World leads for Jeter and Ashmeade

If the sprint fields in Doha seemed a bit depleted on Friday night, it is because most of the world’s best sprinters were in Kingston, Jamaica for the IAAF World Challenge meeting on Saturday night.

Jamaica has in recent years become the sprinting capital of the world and thousands of fans had packed the national stadium for the country’s biggest international grand prix meeting of the year. The enthusiastic crowd were treated to superb performances from the likes of Yohan Blake, Carmelita Jeter, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and rising star Nickel Ashmeade.

Usain Bolt is yet to open his outdoor season and skipped this meeting, but training partner Blake stepped up in style to take the men’s 100m in 9.80, with the wind slightly over the allowable limit at 2.2m/s. Three other men – Daniel Bailey, Mike Rodgers and Michael Frater – dipped under 10 seconds, but Blake was a clear winner.

USA’s Jeter was similarly dominant in the women’s 100m, crossing the line in a world-leading 10.86 – her 10th sub-10.90 clocking and a meeting record. Trinidad & Tobago’s Kelly-Ann Baptiste joined her under 11 seconds with 10.94 for second, while Olympic medallists Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart both ran 11.07 for third and fourth respectively.

The 200m races saw two big upsets. The men’s race featured current world 100m leader Steve Mullings, 9.78 man Nesta Carter and three-time world 200m medallist Wallace Spearmon. But it was 20-year-old Nickel Ashmeade – a former silver medallist at the World Youth Championships and World Junior Championships – who upstaged his more established rivals to take the victory.

Competing in lane eight, Ashmeade – who recently moved to Lance Braumann’s group to train alongside Tyson Gay – ran a strong second half of the race to clock a world-leading 19.95 – an improvement on his previous PB by almost half a second. Mullings held on for second (20.15) from Spearmon (20.18) and Carter (20.25, PB).

The women’s 200m was a head-to-head between two-time Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown and world and Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. Given it was her speciality event, Campbell-Brown was the more fancied of the pair to win, but Fraser-Pryce blasted past her on the bend and maintained her lead down the straight to win in 22.10, the wind once again slightly over the limit at 2.4m/s. Campbell-Brown was 0.27 behind with Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie taking third in 22.78.

European and Commonwealth champion Andy Turner was the sole Briton in Kingston, and he comfortably beat a strong field. Clocking his second fastest time ever, and his fastest outside of a major championship, Turner won in 13.28 from multiple world and Olympic medallist Terrence Trammell (13.39), Jamaican record-holder Dwight Thomas (13.41) and world champion Ryan Brathwaite (14.15).

Perhaps one of the biggest surprises of the evening came in the women’s 400m where world champion Sanya Richards-Ross was renewing her rivalry with former world bronze medallist Novlene Williams-Mills, who defeated the American last time she competed on Jamaican soil in 2009. But this time it was more than just Williams-Mills who ended up beating the American record-holder as Richards-Ross finished out of the top four.

Williams-Mills’ won in 50.71 as Rosemarie Whyte came through for second (51.15) from hurdles specialist Kaliese Spencer (51.30) and USA’s Natasha Hastings (51.30). Richards-Ross finished an uncustomary fifth in 51.62, her lowest finish in a grand prix race since 2003.

Elsewhere in Kingston, Kenia Sinclair won the 800m in 1:58.41, Olympic champion Melaine Walker took the 400m hurdles in 55.60 and Justin Gaymon defeated world champion Kerron Clement in the men’s 400m hurdles (48.58 to 48.74), and Chris Brown of the Bahamas won the 400m flat in 45.37.
