Olympic gold medallist Justin Gatlin and Allyson Felix proved their endurance as a draining seven month athletic season drew to a close by pulling off an American sprint double at the Yokohama meet on Monday.

Gatlin clocked 10.04 seconds to beat Olusoji Fasuba of Nigeria and Christopher Williams of Jamaica who both clocked 10.13 in the men's sprint.

World 200m champion Felix won the women's 100m in 11.05, beating her compatriot Me'Lisa Barber and Julia Chermoshanskaiya of Russia.

"My hamstring was a little bit tight about 20 metres to the finishing line, but it was a good race, I think my performance was good, the competition was great," said Gatlin.

The 23-year-old, 100m and 200m world champion, added: "I'm very pleased with my season this year. I think this season is even better than 2004.

"I feel I established better credit to my name, being more consistent this year, running bigger races, and hopefully next year I can do the same thing, run quality races in fast times on fast tracks."
