American sprinter Mike Rodgers clocked seaon's best time to win 100m at the Meeting de Madrid (the European Athletics Premium Meeting).

Rodgers, who won Pan American Games gold earlier this month, produced a new seaon-best time of 9.97 seconds to win the 100m final in Madrid Meeting on Sunday (25).

"Season's best today starting to come around at the right time on to the Diamond League final!" Rodgers posted on Twitter.

Frenchman Jimmy Vicaut came in second with 10.05 seconds while two Japanese sprinters Abdul Hakim Sani Brown and Yoshide Kiryu both clocked 10.07 seconds to finish 3rd and 4th respectively. Former World record holder Asafa Powel had a very good start but in the final stages of the race he suffered from the left hamstring cramp and was forced to slow down significantly to finish in 7th place in 10.26.

Kenya's Alfred Kipketer won the men's 800m in a season's best of 1:44.50 ahead of his compatriot Jonathan Kitilit 1:45.24.

In the men's 400m Qatar's Emmanuel Bamidele stormed to a victory in 44.85 seconds. Polina Miller, the unatached authorised athlete from Russia, won the women's 400m in 51.00 seconds.
