August 25, 2019
The 22-year-old US sprinter flowed to a 200m time of 19.65 on the newly laid blue track of the Stade Charlety to record one of the most emphatic wins of the night at the Meeting de Paris on Saturday (24). In his wake was Turkey’s world champion Ramil Guliyev, who finished in 20.01 ahead of Canada’s Aaron Brown, who was timed at 20.13.
Canada’s Brandon McBride claimed the men's 800m in 1:43.78 beating Puerto Rico's Wesley Vazquez 1.43.83.
Ronald Musagala dipped like a high hurdler to win a men’s 1500m race that was every bit as competitive as forecast, equalling the Ugandan record of 3:30.58. total of 11 men crossed the line inside 3:32 mark.
Morocco’s Soufiane El Bakkali won an exciting men’s 3000m steeplechase in 8:06.54, but at a cost, as he limped away with blood all over his shoe after being badly spiked in a race where Kenya’s world and Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto in his season’s debut took 5th place in 8:13.75.
Karsten Warholm won the 400m hurdles in characteristically bold style as he came home in 47.26, 0.14 off the European record he set in London last month.
In the women's 800m Hanna Green of the United States made the last 20 metres count as she moved up to pass Natoya Goule just before the line, clocking 1:58.39 to the Jamaican’s 1:58.59.
