Devonish retains UK 100m title in the wind

28 July 2007

Marlon Devonish continued his good vein this season by retaining his 100-metre dash title on a windy evening session at the Norwich Union World Trials & UK Championships on Saturday.

Devonish, the fastest British sprinter this season, at 10.06, claimed the title in a strong headwind -2.0 m/s by edging out Craig Pickering with a time of 10.31 seconds.

“It was all about positions and I’m happy to defend my title because I’ve worked hard,” Devonish told BBC Sport after the race.

Pickering finished a close second in 10.32 and booked his ticket to the IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan next month, while Mark Lewis-Francis finished third in 10.39.

European and former World indoor champion Jason Gardener was fourth in 10.47, just ahead of Tyrone Edgar, who ran 10.48.

The women’s race went to Jeanette Kwaye, who just Laura Turner in a -2.6 headwind photo-finish. Both sprinters posted 11.59. Joice Maduaka took the third spot with 11.68.

Earlier in the day Chris Tomlinson won another Long Jump title with a leap of 7.99m, he beat Nathan Morgan (7.89m).
