Bolt, Ferguson and Moreno score wins in Ostrava

31 May 2006

By Gary Smith and Renn Zdenek

Jamaican sensation Usain Bolt, Bahamian 2000 Olympic 'Golden Girl' Debbie Ferguson and Cuba's Yipsi Moreno scored victories at the IAAF Super Grand Prix Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic. The meeting was the only eastern European stop on the IAAF World Athletics Tour for the year.

Bolt warm up for Spearmon clash with impressive run

Bolt, the World Junior record holder and the second fastest man in the world over 200-metres, won his specialty in a time of 20.28 with much to spear against a quality field. The win in Ostrava, was Bolt's third consecutive win on the trot this season following his respectively times of 20.08 and 20.10 in Fort-de-France and Kingston, earlier this year.

Olympic silver medallist Bernard Williams followed the 2002 World junior champion in distant 20.61. Bolt's fellow Jamaican team mate and 2006 Commonwealth Games champion Omar Brown finished third in 20.63.

2003 World 100m champion Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis was clearly below par as he finished behind everyone in 21.53.

Impressive Ferguson snatches dash title

Ferguson scorched the track in a season's best 11.14 to win the women's 100m dash. Her performance bettered her previous year best of 11.28 set at the Jamaica International Invitational on May 6.

The 30-year-old former Commonwealth Games sprint double champion crossed the line in front of pre-race favourite Me'Lisa Barber, the World Indoor 60m champion, at 11.24 and another American Stephanie Durst - 11.32.
