Gatlin extends unbeaten streak in 100 meters

LINZ, Austria (AP) — Justin Gatlin stretched his season's unbeaten streak in the 100 meters to 10 races by trashing the 20-year-old best mark of the Gugl Games on Monday. Gatlin finished in 9.82 seconds, scraping 0.12 off the meeting record set by Davidson Ezinwa of Nigeria in 1994. Gatlin's run was the fastest ever in Austria though he came 0.02 short of his own best mark for the season after clocking 9.80 at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne. Second-placed Mike Rodgers timed 9.92 while Ryan Bailey took third in 10.12 for an American sweep of the podium. In the women's 100, Carina Horn of South Africa and Carrie Russel of Germany shared victory in 11.21. Shalonda Solomon of United States trailed by 0.04 in third.
