Ostrava (BBC): Asafa Powell won the 100m at the Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava - twice. The Jamaican, 30, sprinted home in 9.97 seconds only to realise Kemar Hyman of the Cayman Islands had been disqualified for a false start.
He ran the race again in the slower time of 10.06 but still beat Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis (10.08) and American Mike Rodgers (10.16). Sally Pearson made a victorious return to international action, clocking 12.67 to win the women's 100m hurdles. Australia's world and Olympic champion, 26, has been struggling with a hamstring injury.
