Jamaica's Asafa Powell lost to American Tyson Gay who continued his world best form by winning the 100 m in 9.79 seconds at the Diamond League meet yesterday.

World-record holder Powell clocked a season’s best 9.88 for second place behind Gay who now owns the three fastest times in the world this season — adding the 9.79 (with a barely legal 2.0 wind) to a 9.75 and a 9.86.

American Mike Rodgers was third in a season’s best 9.96 in an event dominated by Caribbean athletes.
