Zurich Diamond League 2010: USA 37.45, David Oliver 12.93, Jeremy Wariner 44.13

>> August 20, 2010

David Oliver posted the most impressive performances at the Diamond League Meeting in Zurich with a second fastest time over 110mh in 2010. Oliver who set 12.89, the third fastest time of all time earlier this year clocked a time of 12.93second to extend his winning streak to 12 in front of a sell-out crowd of 27,000 fans at Letzigrund Stadium.

Despite a moderate-pace start, Jeremy Wariner took the lead at the final straight with a strong finish to win the quarter mile event in a world lead time of 44.13, 0.27 off the world lead time, set by Jamaica's Jermaine Gonzales. Gonzales was second in 44.51 and Angelo Taylor of the USA finished third in 44.72.

American quartet, comprised of Trell Kimmons, Wallace Spearmon, Tyson Gay and Michael Rodgers set a world's best time of 37.45, defeating Jamaican quartet of Mario Forsythe, Michael Frater, Steve Mullings and Yohan Blake who finished in 37.76. The USA's time is the fifth fastest in history and not too far of the 37.40 national record set twice in 1992 and 1993.

Other events dominated by the USA were from the men's 100m and 200m as well as the women's 400m. Trell Kimmons became the 72nd man to break 10s with a 9.95 effort to win the men's 100m, ahead countryman Michael Rodgers (10.12). Spearmon ran 19.79, a season's best, to edge Jamaica's Yohan Blake into second in 19.86. Three-time World 200m champion Allyson Felix, matched Wariner's feat to win the 400m in 50.37.

However, double Olympic 200metres gold medallist Veronica Campbell spoiled the American's clean sweep in the sprint events as well as protected the Jamaican sprint pride . Campbell took advantage from her bullet start and Carmelita Jeter's slow start to win the blue riband event which ended in an exciting finish. Both sprinters stopped the clock at 10.89.
