Carter’s best

Social Share

Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter is in the best form of his life.
Yesterday, he ran a career-best 9.78 seconds to win the men’s 100 metres at the Rieti Grand Priz in Italy.
It came two days after he had clocked a previous personal best of 9.85 seconds when placing second behind American Tyson Gay at the Memorial Van Damme Diamond League meet in Brussels.
Carter’s 9.78 effort equals the fastest time of the year that was set by Gay.
Helped by a tail wind of 0.9, Carter used a strong finishing kick to lead an extremely fast field, with seven of the eight entrants clocking ten seconds flat or under.
American Ryan Bailey was second in 9.88 seconds, while another Jamaican, Michael Frater, was fifth in 9.98. (AP Picture)
