• Miller-Uibo Victorious in Birmingham Sprint Double Showdown

The two big headline events of the Muller Grand Prix did not disappoint as Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Danielle Williams came out on top in high-quality clashes at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Birmingham on Sunday (18).

Miler-Uibo, the Olympic 400m champion from The Bahamas, had been caught by Dina Asher-Smith by the half-way stage while two-time world champion Dafne Schippers also looked poised to strike.

But the long-striding Miller-Uibo kept her cool and reeled in Asher-Smith down the home straight, replicating her victory from last year. She crossed the line in 22.24 (0.4m/s), which would have surely been quicker in warmer conditions and on a faster track.

Asher-Smith held on for second place in 22.36 with Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce completing the double-barrelled podium with 22.50. Schippers was a few strides behind in 22.81.
