Posted by: Watch Athletics

USA's sprint star Trayvon Bromell clocked a new 100m World lead with a wind-legal (+1.5m/s)  9.77 seconds today at the NACAC New Life Invitational.  

Another US sprinter Marvin Bracy was second in a new PB of 9.85 seconds.

In the prelims, Yohan Blake of Jamaica ran the fastest time of 9.97 (W+2.1m/s) while Bromell clocked 10.01. Only four men ran the final, but the former 100m world champion, Yohan Blake, was not amongst them.

Jamaica's double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson won the 100m and the 200m. She first won the 100m in 10.88, finishing ahead of USA's Tianna Brtoletta (10.96) and her compatriot 19-year-old Brianna Williams who clocked a new Jamaican U20 record with 10.97.

Less than an hour later Thompson also won the 200m in 22.54.
