Former World 100m champion Yohan Blake successfully completed a sprint double at the 2017 Jamaican National Track and Field Championships.
The 27-year-old Blake on Saturday, June 24, took the 100m finals in his season's best time of 9.90 seconds, the second fastest time in the world this year.
On Sunday, Blake comfortably won the 200m final in 19.97 seconds which ties him for the 5th in the 2017 World rankings.
"Every time I run, I am getting better and better and I just want to maintain this form going into the World Championships. Every day Usain encourages me at training," Blake said.
"There is no one to fear, I train with the fastest man ever; what's there to fear? I feel really good, and I am confident again and riding this wave of euphoria." Blake responded when he was asked if there was any athlete that he feared on the track.
Elaine Thomson, the double Olympic sprint champion, won the women's 100m final in a blazing new World leading time of 10,71 seconds.
