“It didn’t feel as smooth, but it was expected (in my first race this year). Just like last season I need more races to get sharp. I am no worries”. Said Bolt.

USA's Kendra Harrison showed high class in the 100m hurdles by claiming the win in a storming 12.42 seconds.

Women's 100m dash won USA's Jenna Prandini in 11.16 seconds (W -0.2). Prandini also won the 200m with a time of 22.63 seconds. 

Kendra Harrison (USA) clocked 12.42 seconds the 3rd fastest time this year in the world in the 100m hurdles.
