Schippers' 21.63 set a meet record and made her the third-fastest woman of all-time. Jamaica's Elaine Thompson ran 21.66 (#5 all-time) but had to settle for silver as 3 women broke 22.00 in the same race for just the second time ever. Eaton ran 45.00 for 400 during the decathlon (best-ever during a decathlon) and could challenge his WR on Saturday.
Molly Ludlow ran 1:59.05 to finish runner-up while Erik Sowinski was 5th in the men's race (1:46.95). Asafa Powell got another easy 100 win in 9.87.
What will Tuka do coming off his huge 1:42 victory in Monco? Will 1:57 woman Buchel keep her almost perfect season going? Asafa Powell highlights some decent sprint races.
Tunisia's Habiba Ghribi beat Ayalew (2nd) and Emma Coburn (5th) in the race, but Ayalew still won the DL title and the $40,000 prize that goes with it. Americans to win DL titles included Jenny Simpson (1500), Tianna Bartoletta (LJ), Reese Hoffa (SP), Christian Taylor (TJ), Michael Tinsley (400 hurdles), LaShawn Merritt (400) and Dawn Harper-Nelson (100 hurdles).
The team of Tianna Bartoletta, Alexandra Anderson, Jeneba Tarmoh and Lekeisha Lawson ran 41.88 to beat Jamaica's 42.28.
