Gatlin clocks world-leading 9.86sec

Ostrava: Justin Gatlin set a new world leading time of 9.86sec on the 100-metre track at the Golden Spike event in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old American has now run the four fastest sprints this season in which he has so far failed to take on Jamaica`s world record holder Usain Bolt, who is recovering from a foot injury.

In Ostrava, Gatlin beat compatriot Mike Rodgers (10.08) and veteran Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis (10.12).
