Bracy wins 100 meters in Beijing after Gatlin withdrawal

BEIJING (AP) -- Marvin Bracy clocked 9.95 seconds to win the men's 100 meters at the World Challenge Beijing meet Wednesday, a day after American teammate Justin Gatlin withdrew from the event.

Bracy beat Mike Rodgers by four hundredths of a second, with Chinese sprinter Su Bingtian taking third in 10.06 at the Bird's Nest, which will also host the world championships in August.

Gatlin had arrived for the meet with an injury concern after running a world-leading 9.74 in Doha, Qatar, on Friday.

The women's 100 was won by Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago in 11.05, ahead of ChaRonda Williams of the United States and Schillonie Calvert of Jamaica.

World-record holder Anita Wlodarczyk of Poland won the women's hammer with a throw of 77.73 meters.
