THE RETURN OF THE BEAST
(Yohan Blake celebrating his World Championship triumph in 2011)
The final was to be contested between Yohan Blake, the 2nd fastest man of all-time, Oblique Seville, the fastest Jamaican over the distance this year (9.86 seconds), Ackeem Blake (9.92 seconds), and a returning Kemar Bailey-Cole, who has a personal best of 9.92 seconds set in London, 2015.

(American 100m champion Fred Kerley)
With Kerley in the form he’s in, Blake coming back to his best with the emergence of Seville and other youngsters, not forgetting Olympic Champion Lamont Jacobs from Italy and if all goes in person as it does on paper this should be a mouth-watering affair.
