Surprised Jeter sizzles

Carmelita Jeter upstaged Usain Bolt with a stunning run in the women’s 100 metres at the World Athletics Final in Greece.

Jeter posted a time of 10.67 seconds to become the third fastest woman ever behind fellow Americans Florence Griffith-Joyner and Marion Jones.

‘I couldn’t believe the time. It didn’t feel that fast but I will take it,’ said Jeter, who defeated world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser in the process.

Bolt ended his season with an emphatic 200m victory in 19.68 sec.

Jeter’s time – the fifth-fastest ever run – was 0.18 sec behind Griffith-Joyner’s world record of 10.49 sec and only 0.02 sec behind the quickest time ever run by Jones, who was stripped of her five medals from the 2000 Olympics after admitting using steroids.
