Britain’s Hughes wins 100m crown at Boston Games

May 22, 2018 Off By Web Desk

Hughes, competing for England, crossed the line first in the 200m on the Gold Coast last month but was stripped of the Commonwealth crown for impeding the progress of Trinidad and Tobago’s Jereem Richards, who originally finished second only to be promoted to gold medalist.

But, aided by 2.4m/sec tailwind and a straight track, Hughes surged late from the inner lane to win in 9.99 seconds.

South Africa’s Akani Simbine remained second in 10.03 seconds and Jamaican Yohan Blake third in 10.17 seconds.
