Commonwealth gold medalist in high jump, Levern Spencer, finished with 1.85m to tie with Ukraine’s Oksana Okuneva in the 4th spot at the Shanghai Diamond League on Saturday May 12th 2018. Authorized neutral athlete, Mariya Lasitskene soared past her with a 1.97m jump, to take first place.
Bulgaria’s Mireoa Demireva came in 2nd with 1.94m, and Germany’s Marie- Laurence Jungfleisch finished 3rd with 1.88m.
Meanwhile, Britain’s Reece Prescod beat Justin Gatlin (USA) to seal a shock 100m victory at the Diamond League. The 22 year old crossed the line in a season’s best time of 10.04 seconds, just 0.01s shy of his personal best. Gatlin finished 7th with a time of 10.20. Canada’s Andre De Grasse came in 8th with a time of 10.25 seconds. De Grasse raced last month at the Drake Relays for the first time since tearing his right hamstring days before last summer’s world championships.
