>> August 29, 2011

As expected, Carmelita Jeter of USA won the 100m women final at the IAAF World championships in athletics at Daegu on 29.08.2011. She clocked a moderate time of 10.90s in the race against a strong headwind -1.4m/s. Second place was the Olympic and world champion, Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica in 10.97s. Trinidad and Tobago's Kelly-Ann Baptista finished third (10.98s), just ahead of the Olympic champion Shelly Ann Fraser of Jamaica (10.99s) who made a comeback after a "long break".

Jeter, who coached by renowned track guru, John Smith did not get a good start, was 3rd place at first 40 meters but managed to execute the race very well, overtaken Shelly Ann Fraser at last 30 meters and across the line with happiness - first world title. In 2009, she ran an incredible 10.64s - second fastest time of all-time (behind Flo-Jo 10.49s), and prior to that she did 10.67s.

Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare finished 5th in 11.12s, ahead of Jamaica's Kerron Stewart in 6th position (11.15s). Bulgaria's Ivet Lalova who has a PB of 10.77s only managed to place 7th in 11.27s with Marshevet Myers of USA last in 11.33s.

To sum up, all women sprinters (100m) at the 2011 World championships are faster than Sogelau Tuvalu !!.
