James recorded a time of  45.15 beating second place finisher Lalonde Gordon of Trinidad and Tobago by almost a second.

The Grenadian quarter miler said he had to borrow race spikes from another athlete after he arrived in Rabat without his travel bag.

"Yes I had to Borrow shoes. The guy was running probably 30 minutes later and probably was in call room, so I had to go get his shoes to him." James said.
