Jamaica's Steve Mullings blasts to a personal best time of 9.80s to win the men's 100m at the Nike Prefontaine Classic (IAAF Diamond League) in Eugene, Oregon US (June 04, 2011). It's the sixth time he recorded under 10s this year. The following is a detail of Mullings' performances to date (this year);

Meanwhile, USA's Jarmelita Jeters produced a stunning time 10.70s to destroy a strong women field and set the World leading time. Despite a slow reaction time 0.188, she was lucky as the race assisted by tailwinds of 2.0 m/s. Behind Jeters was Marshevet Myers of USA who set a PB of 10.86s. Jamaicans Kerron Stewart, Shelly-Ann Fraser and Sherone Simpson finished third, four and fifth in times of 10.87s, 10.95s and 11.00s respectively

Most people thought that Mulling has lowered his World leading time 9.89s in the race in Eugene, but Tyson Gay set an explosive 9.79s a few hours earlier at a small meeting in Clermont, Florida US. Gay had a legal win of 1.1 m/s for the run.
