Arron wins with season’s best in Reims

18 July 2007

French and European 100m record holder Christine Arron continued her come-back from injuries with a winning performance on home soil.

The 33-year-old sprinter, who holds the European record of 10.73, came back from a patched start to win the women’s 100m dash at the Lagardere Athle Tour 2007 meet in Reims, Tuesday evening.

Arron clocked a season’s best and her fastest time in almost two years, to win in 11.23 seconds.

The reigning world sprint double bronze medallist who finished sixth in the 100m in the Paris Golden League meeting on July 6, came home ahead of American Angela Daigle (11.56), who was caught by the French star in the middle of the race.

“My times are getting better but i had to be extremely cautious in order to not repeat what happened in Strasbourg (she was disqualified for a second false start),” Arron told the IAAF website.

“There’s still a lot of work to do and I still lack freshness,” she added.

The men’s race went to Jamaican representative Clement Campbell in 10.16-secs.

Campbell, a member of the Jamaican team for next month’s IAAF World Championships in Osaka, got the nod ahead of American Mickey Grimes (10.16) in a photo-finish and Michael Rogers (10.25).

“By 60m I was still leading, I was a little bit surprised because I’m not used to start that fast,” Campbell said.
