Long jumper Samaai shines in Rabat‚ Semenya disappoints

The second fastest man of all time with 9.69 and 19.26 seconds respectively is scheduled to get an assessment from German doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller Wolphart in Munich on Tuesday. "This is a race to tune for the world championships and it looked pretty well, even if I'm not used to the hot weather here".

Like numerous athletes on show, De Grasse, seen as the heir to Bolt when the Jamaican great calls it quits after London, was using the event as a warm-up for the world championships in London from August 4-13.

Ivory Coast's Ben Youssef Meite was second (10:01), with fellow Briton Nethaneel Mitchell Blake (10:18) in third place.

"I was pushed in the bend but I wanted to finish strong today and to stay relaxed".

"I am confident that I will be ready (for World Champs) and I will be going to Germany to see my doctor for some assessment on the groin", he said.

Nigeria's former queen of the track Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor (11.03 seconds) came from behind to finish fourth in the 100m event at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Rabat yesterday evening.

Tuwayha pleaded not guilty to the murder charges, and testified that he opened fire because he thought the base was under attack. In its ruling, the court said the incident had happened when vehicles carrying the trainers approached the gate of the base.

"I hope I can do something very special in London", ventured Ujah ahead of his clash with Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt next month.

Taking a measured approach to the sprint distance, Semenya was soon left behind, with Olympic champion Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas racing home in 48.80. American Jarrion Lawson leapfrogged past the South African with a second-round attempt of 8.33m, with Samaai responding with 8.31m.

"I'm hoping to arrive at the worlds at my top level", said Ibarguen.
