McLeod hungry for more

first_img American Ameer Webb posted his second sub-20 time of the season in the half-lap event, winning in a meet record 19.85. Panama’s Alonso Edward was second in 20.06. Jamaica’s only field athlete on show, Shanieka Thomas, competing at her first Diamond League meet, fell well short of her personal and season’s best 14.47m in the triple jump. The 24-year-old, who cited her coach’s absence as the possible reason for her below-par showing, placed sixth after managing 14.10m. The event was won by Colombia’s Caterine Ibarguen with a meet record and world-leading 15.04m to stretch her unbeaten run to 32 competitions. Yulimar Rojas, with her leap of 14.92m, broke the Venezuelan national record for second, with Kazakhstan’s Olga Rypakova (14.61m) placing third. [email protected] DOHA, Qatar: “I want everything!” Those were the words of Omar McLeod shortly after he got the better of a quality field at the Qatar Sports Club at the Doha Diamond League meet yesterday. McLeod won in a world-leading and season’s best 13.05 seconds. This was the 22-year-old’s first Diamond League outing, and having created history since the start of the year by becoming the first athlete to run under 10 seconds in the 100m and sub-13 seconds in the 110m hurdles to go along with his World Indoors 60m success, he intends to stay dominant right up to the Olympics as he wants all that’s on offer. “You always want to go out with a bang, especially in hurdling. You always want to stay on top of your game, especially with these world-class athletes. Let them know you are around and let them know you are here to stay,” McLeod said. McLeod survived a stumble at the end of yesterday’s race as he finished ahead of compatriot Hansle Parchment. Parchment, who also clocked a season’s best 13.10, viewed his run as another rung on the journey to the two big races. “I think the technique was a little off today, but this is just another build-up race to the main event – first the trials and then the Olympics, ” Parchment said. Spain’s Orlando Ortega (13.12) was third, while 2013 World Champion David Oliver (13.16) was fourth, and Olympic champion and world record-holder Aries Merritt was sixth in 13.37. MEET RECORD One of two other Jamaican top three finishers on the night was Veronica Campbell-Brown, who improved her season best to 10.91 seconds in the women’s 100m. Campbell-Brown was not perturbed at not winning as she intends to produce her best when it counts most. “I am working to keep getting better so that when it matters most, I am at my best,” Campbell-Brown said. There was a mild upset in the race. American champion and World bronze medallist Tori Bowie won ahead of pre-race favourite Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands in a new meet record and world-leading 10.80. Schippers clocked 10.83. The second Jamaican in the race, Simone Facey, was sixth in 11.05. The country’s most successful Diamond League athlete, 400m hurdler Kaliese Spencer, failed in her bid to notch a 22nd victory in the series as she appeared race rusty and was third in a season’s best 55.02. “I wasn’t hurdling properly … I was jumping for the most part of it,” Spencer, the four-time Diamond Trophy winner in the event, said. The race was won by Great Britain’s Eilidh Doyle in a world-leading 54.53, with world indoor 400m champion Bahrain’s Kemi Adekoya placing second in 54.87. Nickel Ashmeade placed a disappointing seventh in the men’s 200m in 20.31, which he said was due to the flu, which made it difficult even for him to speak. NEW SEASON BESTlast_img read more
