Walter Dix 9.94s, Justin Gatlin 9.95s, Mike Rodgers 9.99s - Wins Auto Slot for U.S World Team, Carmelita Jeter Won Easily in 10.74s

>> June 25, 2011

Olympic bronze medalist Walter Dix wins the 100m dash at the U.S Nationals in 9.94s, slightly ahead of a former World and Olympic champion Justin Gatlin who recorded a season best 9.95s. As expected Dix and Gatlin will be accompanied by Michael Rodgers (9.99s) in the World championships in Daegu, South Korea in August.

As the fourth and fifth finishers, Trell Kimmons (10.04s) and Jeff Demps (10.05s) will also be selected as part of members of the 4x100m. Ivory Williams who ran the fastest time in the semifinals (9.96s) was DSQ after a false start. Unfortunately for the top sprinter in the World this year, Tyson Gay has ended the hunting for the World title when he withdrew from the semifinals due to the right hip injury.

Meanwhile, Carmelita Jeter who has a personal record of 10.64s - the second fastest women in history, runs 10.74s in the windy condition (+2.7) to beat Marshevet Myers in second place in 10.83s. Miki Barber crosses the finish line in 10.96s to collect the final automatic slot for the Worlds.
