Lerone Clarke 10.01, Kim Collins 10.04 100 metres - 2011 Pan American Games, Mexico

>> October 26, 2011

Commonwealth champion Lerone Clarke of Jamaica became the sprint king at the 16th Pan America Games, held in Guadalajara, Mexico on 25th October 2011, after winning his favorite event the blue ribbon. He clocked a season best time of 10.01s (+0.2), just shy to his personal best 9.99s set in Zurich in 2009.

Clarke touches the line first in 10.01s, Collins was given 10.04s
But what makes the the games so special was the performance of the recent World championships bronze medalist Kim Collins of Saint Kitts & Nevis who led the fields at least 90% of the race before Clarke came to take over in the last metres. The 2003 World 100m champion however brought the silver medal home,  clocking 10.04s. Previously in the semifinals he set a season best 10.00s (+0.4), just two hundredths of a second off his personal best 9.98s set in 2002. All the respect now to Kim Collins as he is able to "match" the personal best at age of 35 and after comeback from retirement.

Bronze medal went to Trinidadian Emmanuel Callender who stopped the clock at 10.16s. The women's 100m won by Brazilian Rosangela Santos who ran 11.22s (-0.2). Barbara Pierre of United States in silver medal position (11.25s) while Shakera Reese of Barbados took the bronze in 11.26s (national record).
