Jones Runs the Fastest 100 of Year

July 06, 2002|Associated Press

SAINT-DENIS, France — Marion Jones ran the world's fastest 100 meters this year Friday, clocking 10.89 seconds at the rain-soaked Gaz de France meet.

Maurice Greene was the other American sprinter drawing attention at the meet and he rebounded from two recent defeats to win the men's 100, although his time of 9.99 was far off the seasonal best.

Jones is unbeaten in the 100 since her shocking defeat to Zhanna Pintusevich-Block at last year's World Championships in Edmonton, Canada.

She has won seven races this season, including the first two Golden League meets in Oslo and Saint-Denis.

Olympic bronze medalist Tayna Lawrence finished second in 11.04 and Jones' American teammate Chryste Gaines was third in 11.06.
