Posted by: Watch Athletics

Aleia Hobbs became the first woman this outdoor season to run the 100m under ten seconds in Lousiana on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Hobbs clocked an impressive 10.99 seconds (w +0.6m/s) world lead in her season opener to win the 100m final at the Louisiana State University (LSU) Invitational Battle on the Bayou.

“Feels good to be back in the 10s club,” the 2019 World relays 4x100m champion Hobbs posted on Twitter.

In the women's 200m dash, Nigeria's Favour Ofili, a freshman of LSU, clocked a massive personal best time and NCAA lead of 22.69 (W +0.0m/s) for the win.

Noah Williams won a  wind-assisted 200m in a solid time of 20.27 seconds.
