Double Olympic 100m champion Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce looked in immaculate condition as she easily won the women's 100m in a meet record of 11.20 (0.6 mps) following her usual bullet start at the third staging of the Grenada Invitational last night in St George's.

Fraser-Pryce was quickest out of the blocks and cruised home ahead of her compatriot Jonelle Smith, who closed well for second in 11.35 with American Aliyah Brown third with 11.46, the same time as Jamaica's Gayon Evans in fourth.

The big match-up of the meet never materialised as Jamaica's rising star Akeem Bloomfield pulled up at the top of the straight in the 200m as did Amrican Olympic champion Justin Gatlin. The race was won by Great Britain's Miguel Francis of Racers Track club in a world-leading 20.16. Canadian star Andre degrasse was second in 20.20 with Kyle Greaux of Trinidad and Tobago third in 20.51.

Earlier, Jamaica's Asafa Powell was absent from the Men's 100m A race which was won by Adam Gemili of Great Britain in 10.10 (0.4 mps) just outside his personal best of 9.97. Aaron Brown of Canada was second in 10.13, with Christopher Belcher of the USA third in 10.14. The Jamaicans were down the track with Nesta Carter fifth in 10.26, Nigel Ellis (10.31) in sixth, Tyquendo Tracey in seventh with 10.32 and Julian Forte eighth in 10.35.
