Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes continues to improve with each outing this season, the Anguilla-born running dipping below 10 seconds to win the Racers Grand Prix 100 metre on Saturday night inside the National Stadium. 

Hughes clocked a lifetime best 9.91 to get the better of the United States’ Noah Lyles, who was a fast second in 9.93 seconds.

There was to be more disappointment for Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, Yohan Blake, who finished third again, in 10 seconds flat.

Blake was quicker than Jamaican teammate Senoj-Jay Givans, who clocked 10.13 seconds.

Givans finished ahead of another Jamaican, Julian Forte, who clocked 10.17 and the United States Brandon Carnes, 10.22.

Reynier Mena of Cuba rounded out the field in 10.29.
