Campbell-Brown wins women's 100m in Shanghai

Posted: 15 May 2011 06:19 AM PDT

SHANGHAI (AP) - Jamaica's Veronica Campbell-Brown beat American rival Carmelita Jeter to capture the women's 100 metres on her 29th birthday at the Shanghai Diamond League meet Sunday.

Campbell-Brown benefited from a fast start and held off a quickly closing Jeter in the final metres to win in a time of 10.92 seconds. Jeter was second in 10.95 and Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare third in 11.23.

Jeter has been dominant in the 100 this season, setting the fastest time of the year - 10.86 - in Jamaica last weekend and then winning again on Thursday in Daegu, South Korea.

Campbell-Brown, meanwhile, was running in her first 100-metre race of the year. The two-time Olympic gold medalist in the 200 metres is planning to compete in both the 100 and 200 at the worlds in South Korea in August.

Olympic gold medalist Asbel Kiprop of Kenya was outsprinted in the stretch by countryman Nixon Kiplimo Chepseba in the men's 1,500 metres, a little over a week after he captured the men's 800 metres at the year's first Diamond League event in Doha, Qatar.

Chepseba finished in a time of 3 minutes 31.42 seconds, while Kiprop was second in 3:31.76 and Ethiopia's Mekonnen Gebremedhin was third in 3:32.36.

Jamaica's Kaliese Spencer outsprinted a tiring Lashinda Demus of the United States at the finish line to capture the women's 400-metre hurdles in 54.20 seconds. Olympic and world champion Melaine Walker of Jamaica, back on the track after missing most of the 2010 season with an Achilles injury, finished third.

Two-time world champion Yargelis Savigne of Cuba easily won the women's triple jump with a leap of 14.68 metres (48.16 feet), while the two-time world champion in the women's high jump, Blanka Vlasic of Croatia, won her event with an effort of 1.94 metres (6.36 feet).
