Andre De Grasse wins 200 metres in Morocco

Andre De Grasse wins 200 metres in Morocco

Although World Junior 800m champion Kipyegon Bett has already qualified for the finals, the meeting could be an ultimate final rehearsal if the standings remain the same until the last leg.

The 22-year-old from Markham crossed in 20.03 seconds, edging American Ameer Webb, who finished in 20.18.

Like numerous athletes on show, De Grasse, seen as the heir to Bolt when the Jamaican great calls it quits after London, was using the event as a warm-up for the world championships in London from August 4-13.

The Canadian sprint sensational smashed the meeting record in Morocco by clocking 20.03 seconds to earn eight points and ensure he will line up for a showdown in Zurich in September.

"It was a good race and a good performance".

"I was pushed in the bend but I wanted to finish strong today and to stay relaxed".

World and Olympic triple jump champion Caterine Ibarguen finished well clear of a field that didn't include the 21-year-old Venezuelan who beat her at last month's Rome Diamond League meeting, Yulimar Rojas. Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson picked up her 14th victory in a row in the 100 metres, edging Ivorian Marie-Josee Ta Lou.

Semenya‚ unbeaten in 25 races over two laps‚ ended second last in a slow 51.53sec - more than a second off her 50.40 personal best and way behind Miller-Uibo‚ the victor in 49.44. "The best athlete will win that race but I believe I have regained, so let them be prepared for surprises", Diamond Trophy holder Ferguson Rotich told The Standard Sports. "I can run, but I do not want to risk it", he said.

Ivory Coast's Ben Youssef Meite was second (10:01), with fellow Briton Nethaneel Mitchell Blake (10:18) in third place.

"I made a decision to race and I was hoping the pain would stay away", said the 22-year-old Kenyan after Morocco's home runner Soufiane El Bakkali had stepped up to earn a home win in a personal best of 8min 05.12sec.

Battling to regain his early-season form, Roto finished fifth at his first Diamond League race, posting a time of 10.26.

South Africa's Rushwal Samaai won the men's long jump with 8.35m, two centimetres ahead of Jarrion Lawson of the US.
