Idoko dashes to 60m world lead

Nigeria's Franca Idoko posted another personal best in two weeks after equalling the year's world-leading time of 7.09 seconds at the LAC Chemnitz Erdgas Indoor Meeting in Chemnitz, Germany.

In what was a huge leap in her personal best in the women’s 60m, Idoko was commanding in winning the event, significantly lowering her previous best of 7.19, set two weeks ago in Leipzig.

"I knew I was ready to run fast," she said, "I’m really happy!"

Germany's Verena Sailer and Cuba’s Virgen Benavides tied for the second position in 7.25 seconds.
