Victory in France on Monday evening for this year’s world fastest 100-metre women sprinter Michelle Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago and second place for recent world fastest 100-metre male sprinter Richard Thompson also of Trinidad and Tobago at a Track and Field Meeting in the city of Montreuil.

And add a second place by 8th ranked 2014 shot putter Cleopatra Borel-Brown of Trinidad and Tobago at the meeting to highlight another bright day for TT’s globe-trotting, globe-beating athletes.

Lee Ahye, 10.98-seconds winner of the 100 in her debut Diamond League run last Thursday in Lausanne, Switzerland, clocked 11.32 for her comfortable follow-up win in France Monday and heads to Scotland still holding the 10.85-second world best time achieved in Port-of-Spain on June 21st.

Thompson meanwhile was finishing second (10.16 seconds) for the second time in back-to-back 100’s, losing to American Mike Rodgers in Diamond League action in France last Saturday – Rodgers 10-second flat, Thompson 10.08 – and on Monday in Montreuil to returning American Tyson Gay (10.04 secs) ahead of Thompson, who posted 10.16, and Norway’s Jaysuma Saidy-Ndure who ran 10.23 for third.

Justin Gatlin won last week in Switzerland in 9.80 seconds to push Thompson’s 9.82 into second spot in the world rankings list.

Borel-Brown’s 18.60-metre third toss was best of her five 18-plus efforts and counted for second to American Michelle Carter whose 19.25-metre third was best of the nine-competitor field. Borel-Brown’s 19.10 measured in Cuba in March this year is her season’s best.

Over in Canada last weekend at the Edmonton International Track Classic, Trinidad and Tobago logged Renny Quow 4th – 45.67 to American world-beater LaShawn Merritt and sprint hurdler Mikel Thomas 5th with Barbados duo Shane and Ryan Braithwaite the top two.
