Usain BoltIt seems that speed races in American can be faster than their Old Continent counterpart. In fact, during the night, two great results in the 100m took place with Usain Bolt for Men and Murielle Ahouré for Women.

In Kingston, Usain Bolt, at his third seasonal appearance, registered the second best time of the year, 9’88 behind Jimmy Vicaut and ahead of Justin Gatlin who ran 9”93 this year.

After a bad start, the fastest man in the world started overtaking one opponent after the other and he left no chance to the fellow countrymen Nickel Ashmeade e Yohan Blake, who both ended in 9”94and Asafa Powell who stopped the timer at 9″98. With a better start the time might have been even better of the 9″86 established by Jimmy Vicaut this year.

In the meanwhile in Montverde, in Florida, Murielle Ahouré ran the fastest Women 100m this year stopping the timer at 10”78 and establishing the personal best and the African Record along with improving the WL set by Tori Bowie in Doha in 10”80.

Even more astonishing was the ease the Ivory Cost athlete got rid of her opponents with, since we are talking about valuable athletes as the 2013 World Champion Veronica Campbell-Brown and USA athlete Joanna Atkins.
