Blake now third fastest of all time
Yohan Blake had to settle for second best behind fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt at the London Olympics.
Blake, however, had his big moment yesterday after clocking 9.69 seconds – the joint third fastest time ever in a 100 metres – at the Athletissima Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Blake took 0.06 off his personal best time of 9.75, which he ran when he was silver medallist behind Bolt at the Olympics.
It was a convincing victory for Blake who finished well clear of American Tyson Gay (9.83 seconds).
