"Double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson sped to 10.91secs (+0.1 mps) to win the 100m at the Paris Diamond League, and Omar McLeod suffered cramps and finished seventh in the 110m hurdles, compatriot Ronald Levy presented himself in no uncertain manner with a personal best 13.05secs (-0.1 mps) victory. Veteran Novlene Williams-Mills completed the trio of Jamaican victories capturing the 400m in 51.03secs, with Shericka Jackson, the recent victor at the National Trials, disappointing in third with 51.91secs. Despite the Jamaican successes, there was a bit of concern as Olympic champion McLeod dropped to the track in discomfort, but it was later revealed to be a calf cramp. He limped home in seventh spot with 13.41secs."
