Burns wins 100 in 10.18 at Intersport Gugl-Meeting
September 11, 2007

LINZ, Austria (AP) -- Marc Burns ran his personal best of the season to win the 100 meters in 10.18 seconds at the Intersport Gugl-Meeting on Tuesday.

In heavy conditions because of rain and cold, the 24-year-old Trinidadian beat Matic Osovnikar of Slovenia, who was 0.16 seconds behind. American Darvis Patton was third in 10.36.

Despite a fierce headwind, David Robles of Cuba set a meet record by winning the 110 hurdles in 13.05 seconds, eclipsing the 15-year-old mark of Mark McKoy by 0.01 seconds.

Robles, who also won last year's event in 13.13, defeated Serhiy Demydyuk of Ukraine (13.32) and David Oliver of the United States (13.40).

Wesley Kiprotich led a Kenyan podium sweep in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, winning in 8 minutes, 24.35 seconds, 0.10 seconds ahead of Julius Nyamo Collins Kosgei. Collins Kosgei was third in 8:25.99, just in front of Austria's Gunther Weidlinger.

Shari-Ann Brooks of Jamaica edged Chandra Sturrup of the Bahamas in a photo finish in the women's 100 after both were timed in 11.38 seconds.

Mikele Barber of the United States was third in 11.43. Last year's winner Stephanie Durst finished fourth in the same time as Barber.

Brooks finished second on the 200 meters in 23.40, 0.21 seconds behind Lashauntea Moore of the United States.

I saw the race. They were terrible conditions for running.

The commentators said that taking the wind into consideration, it woudl have probably been around 9.95.

Keep progressing Marc. :beermug:
