JAMAICA'S BAILEY-COLE WINS 100 RACE IN BERLIN



BERLIN (AP) -- Kemar Bailey-Cole kept Jamaica's flag flying in the absence of countrymen Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake at the ISTAF event, winning the 100 meters Sunday and helping his team to victory in the 4x100 hurdles.

Bailey-Cole equaled his personal best of 10 seconds at Berlin's Olympic Stadium to finish ahead of former world champion Kim Collins of St. Kitts and Nevis and Jimmy Vicaut of France.

The 20-year-old Bailey-Cole earlier anchored Jamaica to the relay win in 40.58 seconds, taking advantage of a mix-up between Darvis Patton and Wallace Spearmon of the U.S.

Olympic champion Aries Merritt set a meet record of 12.97 seconds to win the 110 hurdles.
