Andre De Grasse wins 200 metres in Morocco

Yohan Blake Pulls Out Of Rabat Diamond League Meet

Britain's Chijindu Ujah ran under 10 seconds in Rabat, Morocco, to set a new meeting record and secure his third 100m Diamond League win of the season.

Blake pulled out of today's Diamond League meet yesterday but he says the move was precautionary and he will be able to participate in next month's IAAF World Championships in London.

Meanwhile, there was a significant home win for Morocco's Soufiane El-Bakkali in the men's 3000m steeplechase.

Jackson, who has a personal best of 49.83 and season's best of 50.05, has not looked herself after the Jamaican trials but given the revered reputation of her coach Stephen Francis, he might just be working on some finer details. The next Diamond League meeting is in Monaco on July 21. Nijel Amos of Botswana won the gold with 1:43.91.

The MVP star, who clocked 10.94 seconds in London last week running in flats, will line up against in-form Trinidad and Tobago duo of Michelle-Lee Ahye, who lowered her national record to 10.82s three weeks ago, and Kelly-Ann Baptiste, who registered 10.88 in that same race.

Artificial sweetners may lead to weight gain
Both types of studies have their pluses and limitations. "I used to be a person who put Splenda in my coffee every day", she says. But that's a very different message than outright recommending sweeteners for weight loss or better health, she says.

Germany's Raphael Holzdeppe, an equally undefeated world champion in 2013, was second ahead of another Pole, Piotr Lisek, with both men clearing 5.70 - 10 centimetres more than the current world champion Shawn Barber of Canada.

American Ryan Crouser claimed a 10th straight win in the shot put with 22.47 metres, while Colombia's Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen returned to winning ways in the triple jump with 14.51 metres after defeat by Yulimar Rojas in Rome.

Tihomir Ivanov of Bulgaria and Britain's Robbie Grabarz, second and third, were among five in the field to clear 2.27 - of whom one, significantly, was Italy's European champion Gianmarco Tamberi. Barbora Spotakova of the Czech Republic won the event with a distance of 63.73, Slovenia's Martina Ratej was second at 62.46, followed by Tatsiana Khaladovich of Belarus at 62.38. He was pleased with his run, but has yet to go under 20 seconds this season.

There were third-place finishes for Brits Eilidh Doyle and Zharnel Hughes in the women's 400m hurdles and men's 200m respectively.
