Schippers blasts to 100m win in Monaco

Flying Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers blasted to victory in the women’s 100m at Monaco’s Diamond League meet on Friday, dominating the field to win in 10.94sec.

The recently-crowned European champion in the blue riband event was the only sprinter to dip under the 11sec mark, second place going to Jamaica’s seven-time Olympic medallist Veronica Campbell-Brown in 11.12.

South African Carina Horn took third in 11.14 ahead of American duo Morolake Akinosun (11.18) and Tianna Bartoletta, the reigning world long jump champion who will also compete in the 100m at Rio.
