There were four meet records, one world-leading time and some exciting competition at the third staging of the JN Racers Grand Prix inside the National Stadium on Saturday.

The ever-improving Zharnel Hughes of Great Britain sped to a personal best and world-leading 9.91 (0.4 mps) to win the men's 100m. American Noah Lyles was second in 9.93, which propelled him to his personal best and fourth best in the world.

After being absent for over a year, Grenada's Kirani James dropped an impressive 44.35-clocking to win the men's 400m, which was the 10th fastest in the world. He lowered Machel Cedenio's mark of 44.37 set in 2016.

Jamaica's Shanieka Ricketts leapt 14.39m and erased her previous meet record of 14.31m. American Ajee Wilson was in record form and lowered Natoya Goule's 800m record from 2:00.23 minutes to 1:59.84. Goule was second in 2:00.66.

The fourth meet record was established in the men's discus as Reggie Jagers of the US won with a throw of 65.54m.
