GATLIN 4th, 10.14. #glnrDiamondLeague pic.twitter.com/RwOJzh01uA — Jamaica Gleaner (@JamaicaGleaner) May 5, 2017 It was a good win for the South African who took advantage of the fact that he has ran much more than the others given that the South African season is well advanced at this stage.  “First (real) race of the season, and looking forward to the World Champs. I’m happy with my shape now, just to come up here and set a motivation for the rest of the season is what I was hoping for,” said Simbine.  Powell said he was disappointed to have not gone below 10 seconds but is not surprised by the loss to Simbine as his season is just getting started.  “I’m not surprised coming in second, we’re only just beginning our season. I wanted to go sub-10, but couldn’t because of the wind,” said Powell.last_img read more
