Justin Gatlin continued his unbeaten streak this season.

The 33 year old American whose last major win was the 2004 Olympic title in London, blasted away destroying a quality field including former world record holder Asafa Powell (Jamaica) 9.92, and American record holder Tyson Gay (USA) 9.92. Gatlin who was in lane 4 wedged between Powell in 3 and Gay in 5.

He was out well with Powell for the first half of the race, with Gay lagging a bit behind. Gatlin pulled away the second half to win comfortably. It was good to see three of the biggest names in the sport in the same race for once. The track is fast with the meet record in Lausanne was set by Yohan Blake (Jamaica) in 2012 at 9.69.

Gatlin sends a message to Usain Bolt at the world champs, with an unbeaten streak this season and breaking several of Bolt’s meet records in European meets. Bolt who is nursing an injury has withdrawn from his other European races saving himself for World Champs next month in Beijing, China at the birds nest where he won his first Olympic titles in 2008.
