SPECIAL MINISTERIAL TENDERS COMMITTEE
ZURICH---LaShawn Merritt edged a
thrilling finish in the 400 metres at the
Weltklasse Zurich yesterday, earning
partial revenge for losing to Wayde van
Niekerk at the world championships
Merritt won in 44.18 seconds, 0.10
ahead of Grenada's Kirani James---who
claimed bronze in Beijing---and 0.17 ahead
of Van Niekerk, the South African who
left his kick too late.
Merritt, world champ in 2009 and
2013 and Olympic champ in 2008, made
a great start, and powered past James
after 150 metres on a track still wet from
earlier rains at Letzigrund Stadium.
"I just wanted to win," the American
said. "You just have to go to work in any
kind of weather."
James' second spot was enough to
hand him the Diamond Race season title
in front of a sell-out crowd of around
25,000 vociferous fans.
"I'm very tired now but I'm nothing
but thankful to these guys," James said.
"Merritt was great tonight. The prize
itself doesn't mean much to me, these
fans are a diamond trophy themselves."

was back in long braids, and the
result was the same for the sprint
supremo, who is unbeaten since
She finished half a second ahead
of Blessing Okagbare after the
Nigerian put on a fantastic per-
formance following the disappoint-
ment of her last place in Beijing.
American Tori Bowie was again
third, 0.13 behind Fraser-Pryce.
"There is no more to ask for: I
won the world championships and
the Diamond Race," Fraser-Pryce
said. "I'm glad I finished first here.
"It's not easy to race again in such
a close time. I needed to adjust again
but we are used to it, we are pro-
There were 18 other individual
world champions from Beijing com-
peting in Zurich, although the all-
star cast didn't include Usain Bolt
or Justin Gatlin.
Without that duo, whose intrigu-
ing battle dominated the sprints at
the worlds, Alonso Edward of Pana-
ma won the 200 in 20.03 to take
the Diamond Race title. Edward,
who was fourth in Beijing, was 0.17
ahead of Rasheed Dwyer. Anaso
Jobodwana was third---just as he
was at the worlds---0.21 behind
Greg Rutherford added the Dia-
mond League trophy to his Olympic,
world, and European titles in the
long jump. The Briton jumped 8.32
metres to beat America's Marquis
Dendy. Fabrice LaPierre of Australia,
runner-up in Beijing, cleared a sea-
son's best of 8.27 to finish third.
"This victory means a hell of a
lot to me," said Rutherford, who
also holds the Commonwealth title.
"It is the last crown for me. I am
In another highly competitive
event, world champion and double
European champion Sergey
Shubenkov of Russia won the 110
hurdles in 12.98 seconds. Former
world champ David Oliver of the
US beat Cuban Orlando Ortega to

title, with both finishing 0.16
behind Shubenkov. Jason Richard-

Ivana Spanovic set a new Serbia
record of 7.02 metres to win the
long jump. She broke her own

said. "There, I had a lot of pressure
with people expecting me to get
Spanovic again shared the podi-
um with American world champion
Tianna Bartoletta and Britain's
Shara Proctor. Bartoletta leapt 6.97
to secure the Diamond Race title,
despite admitting she was still in
a lot of pain after spraining her
ankle at the worlds.
