  • Canadian sprinter Andre De Grasse set a meeting record to win the 200-metre race at the Diamond League stop in Rabat Morocco on Sunday

Pawel Wojciechowski of Poland cleared 5.85 for the win, Raphael Holzdeppe of Germany was second at 5.70, and Piotr Lisek of Poland also cleared 5.70 for a third-place result.

She placed a time of 11.03 seconds.

His personal best is 9.96, achieved in July 2015.

The Olympic silver medallist stormed home in 20.03 seconds ahead of American Ameer Webb (20.18) and Britain's Zharnel Hughes (20.22).

Olympic shot put champion Ryan Crouser appears an unstoppable force as he heads towards the London World Championships. I hold the meeting record and I wanted to improve that today.

The Moroccan fans were served up a home 1-2-3 in the men's 1,500m won by Brahim Akachab, while Botswana's Nijel Amos, who has the fastest time in the world this year, won the 800m in 1min 43.91. Roto looked off balance out of the blocks and battled to get the ascendancy, with Great Britain's Ujah Chijindu winning the race in a time of 9.98. American Jarrion Lawson leapfrogged past the South African with a second-round attempt of 8.33m, with Samaai responding with 8.31m.

However, prior to the national trials, Kipruto had ran a world lead of 8:04 at the Rome Diamond League meeting on June 8.

Although World Junior 800m champion Kipyegon Bett has already qualified for the finals, the meeting could be an ultimate final rehearsal if the standings remain the same until the last leg.

The 33-year-old Colombian won with 14.51m, 20cm ahead of Kimberly Williams of Jamaica, with Greece's Paraskevi Papachristou taking third place with 14.21, a centimetre ahead of London 2012 champion Olga Rypakova of Kazakhstan.

Okagbare though failed to build on her impressive 10.99 seconds run in London last week, this time finishing fourth in the 100m event at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Rabat on Sunday.

Ben Youssef Meite of Cote d'Ivoire was second in 10.01, with Britain's Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake third in 10.18.

Meanwhile, Zuzana Hejnova (54.22) won the women's 400m hurdles, Caterine Ibarguen (14.51m) claimed the women's triple jump title on the night, while Barbora Spotakova (63.73m) impressed in the women's javelin.
