Jamaica’s world indoor bronze medallist, Ackeem Blake, finished third in the men’s 100m at the Xiamen Diamond League track and field athletics meet on Saturday.

The race was won by Christian Coleman, who got the better of fellow former world champion Fred Kerley.

World indoor 60m champion Coleman failed to make his customary fast start, with 2022 world champion Kerley leading through the first 30 metres. But the 28-year-old picked up well in the middle of the race and moved past his compatriot to win in 10.13 seconds.

Kerley was closing at the finish and took second in 10.17 with Blake (10.20) third.

Another former world champion, 2011 winner Yohan Blake of Jamaica, finished down in ninth place.
