World champions Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson, and newly minted Commonwealth Games champion Rasheed Broadbell were winners at Monday’s Istvan Gyulai Memorial in Szekesfehervar, Hungary, a World Continental Tour Gold meeting.

Fraser-Pryce has been a model of consistency, as she ran yet another sub-10.70 seconds time, winning the women’s 100m in 10.67 seconds (1.3m/s), the same time she ran in the finals of the World Championships in Eugene, Oregon last month and the fourth occasion she has run that time this year.

Natasha Morrison was fifth in a season’s best 11.06 seconds and Briana Williams was sixth in 11.14 seconds.

Jackson reeled off her eighth consecutive win in the 200m after she clocked an easy looking 22.02 seconds (0.6m/s).

Broadbell, who made up for missing the World Championships finals by winning the 110m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham last week, just got to the finish line ahead of World Champion Grant Holloway of the USA, both being credited with the same time of 13.12 seconds (1.0m/s) while American champion Daniel Roberts was third in 13.13 seconds.

Another Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Janieve Russell was second in the women’s 400m hurdles, running 54.14 seconds and Rushell Clayton was third in 54.45 seconds. American world record holder Sydney McLaughlin won in 51.68 seconds.

Yohan Blake was fourth in the men’s 100m in 10.03 (1.3m/s), just ahead of compatriot Ackeem Blake-10.05 seconds; Rusheen McDonald was fifth in the men’s 400m in 45.67 and Chrisann Gordon-Powell finished eighth in the women’s 800m in 2:03.56 seconds.
