Frenchman Jimmy Vicaut ran 9.86 seconds equalling his own European 100m record on Tuesday night in Montreuil, France.

At 2015 Paris Diamond League meet Vicaut ran 9.86 seconds and became the co-holder of the European record together with Portugal's Francis Obikwelu.  

Last week on June 2, Vicaut clocked 9.99 seconds and almost beat American sprinter Justin Gatlin in Rome DL. 

"I thought I'd put in a big time today. I'm really satisfied with that," said Vicault after the race.

Elsewhere on the track, men's 800m race winner Nicholas Kipkoech produced a super fast time of 1:43.83 to  beat his Kenyan teammate Jonathan Kitilit into second (1:43.89). Meanwhile the 20-year-old Kenyan Margaret Wambui dominated the women's 800m clocking her new personal best and world #3 of 1:57.52.

 USA's Dalilah Muhammad won the women's 400m hurdles posting world #3 time of 54.37 seconds. Frenchman Pascal Martinot Lagarde topped the men's 110m hurdles clocking 13.23 seconds. 

In the men's long jump contest, Jamaican Damar Fortes jumped 8.21m (Wind +2.8m) in round 5 beating Polish athlete Adrian Strzalkowski into second (8.09m).

Venezuelan teenager Robeilys Peinado cleared 4.55m to win the women's pole vault competition. Olympic and world champion Anita Wlodarczyk threw 76.61m to win the hammer throw contest.
