Article source: Athletics


Yohan Blake stormed to a victory in the men's 100m final, meanwhile Usain Bolt was forced to withdraw from the 2016 Jamaican Olympic Trials on Friday night in Kingston, Jamaica.

The second fastest man in history Yohan Blake clocked 9.95 to win the Jamaican Championships with Nickel Ashmead in second in 9.96 seconds. 

The third place took  Jevaughn Minzie, who  clocked a personal best  10.02, while former world record holder Asafa Powell took fourth in 10.03 seconds.

The-6-time Olympic Champion Usain Bolt who recovered from a very poor start to win his semi final in 10.04, withdrew from the final and the rest of the Jamaican Championships after he felt some pains in his hamstring. After the heats on Thursday, Bolt already complained about some pains in his right hamstring. 

On Thursday, several athletes including Bolt complained about long delays in the qualifying rounds as they had to compete cold. 

Meanwhile Elaine Thompson crushed the women's 100m final clocking a new Jamaican Record and 4th fastest time in history of 10.70 seconds. World and Olympic 100m champion Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce clocked 10.93 to take second with Christiana Williams in third in 10.97. Multiple World and Olympic Champion Veronica Campbell-Brown finished in 4th place 11.10 seconds.
