Diamond League: Britain’s Neita wins women’s 100m in Doha

Britain’s Daryll Neita beat American Tamari Davis by just one-hundredth of a second to claim victory in the women’s 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Doha on Friday.

The 27-year-old won with a time of 10.98 seconds in Qatar, while American Celera Barnes finished behind compatriot Davis in third.

Victory for Neita follows her impressive win in the 200m at last month’s Suzhou Diamond League in China.

There was also success for fellow Brit Molly Caudery, who beat reigning pole vault world champion Nina Kennedy with a jump of 4.73m.

Elsewhere, Kenneth Bednarek ran a personal best and world-leading time in the men’s 200m to lead an all-American podium.

The Tokyo Olympic Games silver medallist cruised to the finish line with a time of 19.67 seconds, as Courtney Lindsey finished second and Kyree King came third.
