Former world 100m champion, Yohan Blake won the men’s 100m race at the Diamond League Final at the Van Damme Memorial in Belgium on Friday, September 01.

Yohan Blake won the race, beating Michael Rodgers of the United States and fellow-Jamaican Julian Forte.

In the absence of recently retired Usain Bolt and world champion Justin Gatlin, 2011 world champion Blake rekindled some old form for a rare win, finishing in a modest 10.02 seconds as runners were slowed by the rain and cold at the King Baudouin Stadium.

Rodgers finished in 10.09 and Forte had 10.12.

The storm was such that it caused a blackout in the neighborhood and the meet had to be completed with limited visibility.
