At Dusseldorf on Feb 3, the veteran 39-year old Kim Collins of St Kitts-Nevis won the men's 60m in a world-leading time of 6.53, after two false starts ruled out Mike Rodgers of the US and Christian Blum of Germany.

Caribbean athletes continued to do well, in front of another sold-out crowd, this time in Glasgow....

Jamaica's Steph MacPherson won the women's 400m in a time of 52.05.

St Lucians Lavern Spencer and Jennelle Scheper finished first and fourth respectively in the women's high jump with leaps of 1.93 and 1.87 respectively.

Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers won the women's 60m in 7.10, ahead of Jamaican Elaine Thompson (7.14), with Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad finishing fourth.

Despite going into the men's 60m final with the fastest time, Kim Collins of St Kitts-Nevis pulled up injured with a hamstring problem that could affect the rest of his season....

On the second day of the World Indoor Champs at Portland, Oregon, yesterday, Jamaica's Asafa Powell took the silver medal in the men's 60m with a time of 6.50, behind American Trayvon Brommell (6.47). Ramon Gittens of Barbados finished third in 6.51.

Powell's performance was disappointing, considering that he registered identical world-leading times of 6.44 in both the heats and the semis.

Another Jamaican, Steph MacPherson, made the final of the women's 400m with a time of 51.91. Among those making the men's final were Trinidadians Deon Lendore (46.23) and Lalonde Gordon (46.03), but the new star seems to be another Grenadian named Bralon Taplin, who was commanding in winning his semi in 45.38.

Kurt Felix, also of Grenada, was third in the men's heptathlon after winning the shot putt with a throw of 15.02, and his 7.00 in the 60m was a PB. Ashton Eaton of the US led with 2770 points, with Felix third in 2595.

In Saturday's action at Portland, Czech Pavel Maszlak retained the men's 400m with a time of 45.44, with Trinidadian Deon Lendore third in 46.17, and Bralon Taplin of Grenada finishing a disappointing fourth in 46.56 following a suicidally fast start. Jamaican Steph MacPherson finished fourth in the women's equivalent.

American Barbara Pierre won the women's 60m with a time of 7.02, ahead of Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands (7.04), Jamaica's Elaine Thompson (7.06), and Trinidadian Michelle-Lee Ahye (7.11). Trinidad's Cleopatra Borel threw 18.38 for fourth in the women's shot putt.

The USA won the men's mile relay with a time of 3:02.45, ahead of Caribbean teams Bahamas (second in 3:04.75), Trinidad (third in 3:05.51) and Jamaica (fourth in 3:06.02). Levern Spencer of St Lucia finished fourth in the women's high jump with a clearance of 1.93.
