Blake pulled out of today's Diamond League meet yesterday but he says the move was precautionary and he will be able to participate in next month's IAAF World Championships in London.

Britain's Chijindu Ujah ran under 10 seconds in Rabat, Morocco, to set a new meeting record and secure his third 100m Diamond League win of the season.

Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast, who has a season's best of 10.96, and Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguomor with 10.99 - who both chased Thompson in Paris - will be hoping for better this time around.

The nearest challengers to the Nigerian are flying Dutch lady, Dafne Schippers (15 points), Nigeria-born American, Morolake Akinosun (nine points), Cote D'Ivoire's Muriel Ahoure (nine points) and Jamaica's Christiana Williams (eight points). American Ryan Crouser claimed a 10th straight win in the shot put with 22.47 metres, while Colombia's Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen returned to winning ways in the triple jump with 14.51 metres after defeat by Yulimar Rojas in Rome.

His personal best is 9.96, achieved in July 2015.

Jamaica's World Championships and Olympic Games 400m bronze medallist Shericka Jackson and veteran Novlene Williams-Mills will be severely tested by Olympic champion Shanaue Miller-Uibo of The Bahamas and South African 800m champion Caster Semenya, who will be stepping down to the quarter-mile today.

Liz Gleadle of Vancouver threw a personal-best 60.43 metres to place fourth in javelin. Nijel Amos of Botswana wins in the time of 1.43.91.

While Croatia's Rio 2016 javelin victor Sara Kolak was otherwise engaged, winning the European Under-23 title with an effort of 65.12m in Bydgoszcz, her Czech predecessor as Olympic champion, Barbora Spotakova, who beat Kolak with a final round season's best of 68.26m at last week's London Diamond League, secured another victory with 63.73.

Rushwal Samaai of South Africa jumped 8.35 (0.4) in the 3rd round for the win.

The 33-year-old Colombian won with 14.51m, 20cm ahead of Kimberly Williams of Jamaica, with Greece's Paraskevi Papachristou taking third place with 14.21, a centimetre ahead of London 2012 champion Olga Rypakova of Kazakhstan.
