Fraser-Pryce got a trademark comfortable start before pulling away from the field to stop the clock at 11.20, which was a new meet record.  Her compatriot Jonielle Smith finished strongly but was still a distant second in 11.35.  The United States’ Aliyah Brown was third in 11.46.

Another Jamaican, Gayon Evans was fourth in 11.46, with Trinidad and Tobago’s Semoy Hackett fifth in 11.60.

In the men’s equivalent, it was Great Britain’s Adam Gimili who claimed top spot but only just ahead of Canada’s Aaron Brown who was second in 10.13.  The United States Christopher Belcher was right behind Brown, stopping the clock in 10.14 for third place.  A quartet of Caribbean athletes Nester Carter, Nigel Ellis, Tyquendo Tracey and Julien Forte were fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth respectively.
