Jasmine Camacho-Quinn and Marvin Bracy-Williams highlighted the 2023 Meeting International de Montreuil, World Athletics Continental Tour Silver level series.

The Olympic champion Camacho-Quinn, who last Saturday at USATF Los Angeles Grand Prix stormed to a new 100m hurdles World Lead of 12.30 seconds, picked up another victory this year over the short hurdles in Montreuil, France on Wednesday (31) night. The 26-year-old Puerto Rican clocked a blistering 12.40 seconds, beating former world champion USA's Nia Ali by 0.31 seconds.

Camacho-Quinn has been outstanding so far this season as she has won all of her 5 races. One of her victories includes an astonishing wind-aided time of 12.17 seconds (+3.5 m/s), the fastest 100m hurdles all conditions time in history, from USATF Bermuda GP two weeks ago.

USA's World championships silver medalist Marvin Bracy-Williams took a convincing victory in the men's 100m. He clocked his first sub-10 seconds this year in the heats of 9.97 seconds (+1.5 m/s), before winning the final with a new meeting record time of 9.93 seconds (+0.8 m/s). Emmanuel Matadi from Liberia took second place with 10.04 seconds, while Emmanuel Eseme from Cameroon in finished in 10.08 seconds.

Bracy will race the 100m against the World Champion Fred Kerley at the Rome/Florence Diamond League on Friday, June 2.
