Gemili cruises to Barcelona win
Adam Gemili cruised to victory in the final of the 100 metres at the World Junior Championships in Barcelona.
The British sprint sensation recorded a remarkable time of 10.05seconds, a championship record and a personal best for the 18-year-old Londoner in his fledgling career.
His time was 0.12secs quicker than Aaron Ernest from the United States while Jamaica's Odean Skeen came third in a time of 10.28secs.
Gemili, who has been selected for the 100m and 4x100m at the Olympics, had earlier ran his then-third fastest time by clocking 10.18secs in the semi-final but his performance in the showpiece event is sure to make heads turn.
Christian Malcolm in 1998, Mark Lewis-Francis two years later and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey in 2005 have all matched Gemili's feat.
But much is expected of the youngster, who beat his previous best of 10.08secs in a low-key race in Germany last month with a phenomenal run in the same Montjuic Stadium that Linford Christie won 100m gold at the 1992 Olympics.
