KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica's Yohan Blake continued his return to form by winning the 100m in a season?s best 10.12 seconds at Morton Games in Ireland, today.
Blake, who has a personal best of 9.69 seconds set in 2012, ran the fastest time ever on Irish soil.
He will miss next month?s Beijing World Championship, but remains on course for next year?s Rio Olympics in Brazil, following a long injury.
Blake was quoted as saying he wanted to run sub-10 seconds but had some technical problems, he, however, felt good building up to next year.
