Thompson, the Olympic champion in the 100m and 200m, was beaten by Asher-Smith in the 200m in Stockholm last week with the Briton also winning in Doha in May.

Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josée Ta Lou, a double 100m and 200m silver medallist at the 2017 worlds in London, clocked 11.14 to finish fourth in her first international appearance of the year.

The United States went 1-2 in both the men’s and women’s 400 metres hurdles.( Read More ) [via @SuperSportTV]
