Yohan Blake of Jamaica, the reigning world 100-metre champion, clocked 9.90 seconds in cold and rainy conditions at the UTech Classic athletics meet to set the fastest time in the world so far this year.

Blake, who surpassed Darvis Patton's previous world best this year of 10.04, also joined world 100m record-holder Usain Bolt on the Racers Club relay Sunday that captured the 4x100 relay in 37.82 seconds, also a world best time this year.

Also running the world's best time this year was Beijing Olympic 400m finalist Rosemarie Whyte, who won the 400m in 51.13 seconds.— IANS
