KINGSTON, Jamaica - Commonwealth Games champion Rasheed Broadbell broke the meet record at the Meeting International Mohammed VI d'Athletisme de Rabat, the second stop on the Wanda Diamond League after he ran 13.08 seconds (-1.3m/s) to win the 110m hurdles on Sunday.
After two recalls that were determined to be ‘faulty starts’, Broadbell who trailed two-time World Champion Grant Holloway, took charge at the final barrier to just beat the American.
The time beat David Oliver’s 13.12 seconds set in 2016, the same time run by Holloway, with Olympic champion Hansle Parchment third in 13.24 seconds, his season’s best.
Earlier, Jamaicans were second, third and fourth in the women’s 400m hurdles that was won by American Shamier Little in 53.95 seconds with all eight athletes recording season’s best times.
Rushell Clayton was second in 54.15 seconds, Shaniann Salmon who ran a strong second half of the race but clipped the final hurdle, was third in 54.42 seconds and Janieve Russell fourth in 55.41 seconds.
