Andre De Grasse tops field in 200m at Diamond League

Elaine Thompson clocks meet record to win 100m in Rabat

Abdalaati Iguider finished off the meeting with a second success of the night for Morocco in the 3000m after his compatriot Soufiane El Bakkali won the 3000m steeplechase in a personal-best time of 8:05.12.

Pawel Wojciechowski of Poland cleared 5.85 in his third and final attempt.

Jackson, who has a personal best of 49.83 and season's best of 50.05, has not looked herself after the Jamaican trials but given the revered reputation of her coach Stephen Francis, he might just be working on some finer details.

A meeting record and a new seasons best.

Toronto's Shawn Barber, who won his event at the nationals, finished fourth in the pole vault competition as he cleared 5.60m.

In a race billed as the battle of the Olympic champions, 400m medalist in Rio de Janeiro previous year Shaunae Miller-Uibo once again showed why she is the athlete to beat in the single lap event, running a blistering time of 49.80s, more than a second ahead of Americans Natasha Hastings (50.86) and Quenera Hayes (51.08).

The 22-year-old has won four consecutive Diamond League races, capturing the 200 in Rome, and the 100 in Oslo and Stockholm.

Botswana's Nijel Amos was rewarded for a bold run in the 800m and will head for the second final meeting in Brussels on September after winning in 1:43.91.

While Croatia's Rio 2016 javelin victor Sara Kolak was otherwise engaged, winning the European Under-23 title with an effort of 65.12m in Bydgoszcz, her Czech predecessor as Olympic champion, Barbora Spotakova, who beat Kolak with a final round season's best of 68.26m at last week's London Diamond League, secured another victory with 63.73.

In the women's triple jump, Jamaican Kimberly Williams finished second with an effort of 14.31 metres. He was pleased with his run, but has yet to go under 20 seconds this season.

Another South African, Clarence Munyai (20.31) also finished fifth, as Andre de Grasse won the men's 200m in 20.03, ahead of American Ameer Webb (20.18) and Britain's Zharnel Hughes (20.22).

Ivorian Ben Youssef Meite was second in 10.01, while another Britain, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, was some way off the pace in third in a time of 10.18.
