Allyson Felix Outsprints VCB & Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce To Win Women’s 100m (Diamond League, Qatar)

The USA’s Allyson Felix, who is better known for her achievements over the 200m distance, managed to pip Jamaica’s former world champion Veronica Campbell-Brown at the line to win the women’s 100m race (Diamond League in Doha, Qatar) in a new meet record time of 10.92 seconds. Despite a desperate lunge for the line, Campbell-Brown was second with a time of 10.94 seconds and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce took third with 11.00. Fellow Jamaicans Kerron Stewart and Sherone Simpson finished 7th and 8th respectively (Simpson had a season’s best time of 11.22 seconds). The complete race results are detailed below.
