American sprinter Carmelita Jeter has set a personal best 10.67 seconds to win the women’s 100 metres at the World Athletics Final, making her the third fastest woman of all time.

Jeter overcame a slight headwind of 0.1 meters per second to beat Shelly-Ann Fraser of Jamaica (10.89) and Kerron Stewart (10.90).

Only world record-holder Florence Griffith-Joyner and Marion Jones have run faster.

Jeter surged past Fraser over the final metres, getting a measure of revenge for losing to the Jamaican at last month’s world championships.

Griffith-Joyner’s world record from 1988 is 10.49, while Jones ran 10.65 in 1998.
