Felix eases to Rabat 400m victory

Olympic 200m champion Allyson Felix comfortably won the 400m at the Rabat International on Sunday even if her time was nowhere near the season-best she had planned.

The American sprinter timed 51.05sec, way off the season-leading best of 49.86sec set by compatriot Francena McCorory 24 hours earlier at the New York Diamond League meeting.

Grenada’s Kirani James, the Olympic 400m champion, was also untroubled in his event, coming home in 45.15sec.

In the high jump, Ukraine’s Bohdan Bondarenko and Russian rival Ivan Ukhov, two of just 16 men to have cleared the 2.40m barrier, went head to head.

Bondarenko came out on top with his 2.31m leap bettering Ukhov’s 2.28m.
