Bolt blasts to 10.03 in Rethymno

18 July 2007

Jamaica’s World Junior 200m record holder Usain Bolt showed that he too must be ranked amongst the best sprinters by blazing to an eye opening personal best in the men’s 100-metre dash at the 23rd Vardinoyiannia in Rethymno, Greece on Wednesday.

The Jamaican 200m specialist surprisingly moved away from the more specialized 100m runners to win the race in his career best of 10.03 seconds.

Following Bolt to the finish line was American Leroy Dixon, who clocked 10.07 for second. Also trailing the Jamaican to finish line was his main rival in the 200m, American Wallace Spearmon, who clocked 10.20 for place.

In the women’s race American Torri Edwards continued her impressive run this season by clocking 11.05 for first over World 200m champion Allyson Felix (11.11), the and reigning world 200m champions and reigning world 100m gold medallist Lauryn Williams (11.12).

In other results Spearmon clocked 20.24 to win the men’s 200m, Williams won the women’s race in 22.70, European 400m Hurdles champion Periklis Iakovakis of Greece clocked 48.51, to beat Jamaica’s Danny McFarlance (48.92) in his specialty, while Olympic Long Jump champion Dwight Phillips and Tatyana Lebedeva of Russia won the men’s and women’s Long Jump with respective jumps of 8.31m and 6.86m.
