Blake pulled out of today's Diamond League meet yesterday but he says the move was precautionary and he will be able to participate in next month's IAAF World Championships in London.

The race was won by Jamaica's reigning Olympics champion, Elaine Thompson who set a new 10.87 seconds meeting record with Ivorian girl, Marie-Jose Ta Lou second in 10.90 seconds while Trinidad and Tobago's Ahye Michelle-Lee finished third in 11.02 seconds.

Ujah, 23, achieved a season's best of 9.98 seconds and beat the record of 10.12 held by American Justin Gatlin.

The eagerly-anticipated women's 400 metres battle between Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas and South Africa's 800 metres Olympic champion Caster Semenya was a non-event.

Soufiane El Bakkali of Morocco wins in the Men's 3000m Steeplechase in the time of 8.05.12.

Having improved his national record to 5.93 at last week's Lausanne Diamond League meeting, the 28-year-old from Bydgoszcz kept the winning habit, settling the competition with a first time clearance of 5.70 before making 5.85 at his third attempt.

Liz Gleadle of Vancouver threw a personal-best 60.43 metres to place fourth in javelin.

The Moroccan fans were served up a home 1-2-3 in the men's 1500m 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.

Ryan Crouser of United States of America throws 22.47 in the 6th round to win the Men's Shot Put.

Andriy Protsenko won the high jump to also reach the final, while Rushwal Samaai can look forward to going for a big pay day at the end of the season after he won the long jump and Pawel Wojciechowski took the honours in the pole vault.

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

Sports reports that Ujah also won the 100m at the Rome and London meetings this year. Completing the field are American Cassandra Tate, Eilidh Doyle of Great Britain, two-time World champion Zuzana Hejnova of the Czech Republic, Sara Slott Petersen and Lea Sprunger of Switzerland.
