By Piyush


Britain’s Reece Prescod triumphed the 100 metres in a personal best of 9.93 seconds at the Golden Spike athletics meet in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava.

Prescod, 26, beat Jamaica’s Yohan Blake and fellow Briton Zharnel Hughes with both at 10.05 seconds.

“It was a great race so I am really happy about that,” stated Prescod.

“I feel in a good place and I will… hopefully get myself into some hot races now after running that time.”

The athletics World Championships in Eugene, United States are all set for 15-24 of July.

Also in Ostrava, US athletics virtuoso Allyson Felix had to bow to Aminatou Seyni of Niger on 200 metres, with the African putting a national record of 22.21 seconds.

Felix, 36, who has triumphed 11 Olympic medals, declared in April she would retire after this season.

“It was a big honour to run against Allyson Felix on her last circuit. But as a sprinter, you have to focus on yourself and stay calm,” stated Seyni.
