Women 100m Final Video

Ironically Usain bolt also timed 9.91s (same to Campbell's 100 yards) in the men's 100 metres and equalled his season best from the Diamond league meeting last week. So, is it a gap (8.56 metres) for the 100 metres between men and women of the same level?. The Lightning Bolt crossed the 100 yards line in 9.14s, subsequently failed to break the 100 yards World best 9.07s set by Asafa Powell at the same meet last year.
